Sabine Contreras is originally a native of Germany and moved to the U.S. in 1999, after meeting her husband. They live on the West Side of Los Angeles, California and share their home with Jack Russell Terrier Dax and five cats. Involved with dogs and dog related activities for over 25 years, Sabine is very interested in natural, preventive dog care as well as canine nutrition and has accumulated experience in these fields through thousands of hours of independent research and academic study. Sabine’s experience in animal care is not limited to dogs though, but also includes small pets (mice, rats, guinea pigs), cats, horses, dairy cattle and other livestock.

Sabine works with pet owners as well as business clients, rescues, breeders, and veterinarians. Although her focus is on customized feeding plans for individual dogs, she has also formulated diets based on NRC recommendations for small businesses selling fresh prepared foods, some of which recently underwent and passed AAFCO feeding trials.

Topics Sabine will be covering include:

  • Commercial food
  • Home Prepared food
  • Cooked vs Raw
  • Food Allergies
  • Canine Obesity
  • And so much more!
