Akaya is a husky/lab mix and the eldest of our 3 pups. She has been with her dad (my boyfriend) since she was 6 weeks old. She may be 12, but she still has the spunk of a pup, although we are starting to see a little change in her movement due to weight gain and typical joint issues with senior dogs. She has always dealt with minor skin allergies but nothing too serious. We free feed our dogs but noticed Akaya has been eating more often and gained some weight over the last few years. We started monitoring her meals and wanted to try a more natural, healthy type of food other than kibble. This has been a great way to introduce meal times to a dog who has never had them and she absolutely LOVES it. I've noticed some improvement in her itching since she's started as well.
