How I Train Puppies to Eat RAW Food with My Pack – K9 MukBang (Pack-Bang)



In this video I show how I train puppies to eat RAW food with the adults in the pack. This is a ‘pack feeding’ to foster a healthy pack dynamic. It allows the adults to teach the pups their boundaries when feeding in a group.

Dogs seen in this video are my two 15 week Renascence Bulldogge puppies Rekkr and Magi, Blue Bay Shepherd Kurgan, German Shepherd Lobo and my Lycan Shepherd Ulu. Again, this IS NOT what a typical RAW meal looks like for them… it’s a ‘pack feeding’. You can find videos of a typical RAW meal for them in my RAW food playlist linked below.

** DISCLAIMER **
“I’m just some guy on YouTube.” I am not a “professional” dog trainer nor K9 nutritionist and I am not representing myself as one. I am here just showing what ‘I do’ and what ‘works for me’ as a long time Animal Warden, breeder and dog rescuer and I explain while doing it why I do it this way. 🙂

* Before asking me any feeding questions in the comments (OR ON INSTAGRAM) look through the several links I am providing below. 99.9% of any RAW feeding questions you have for me will be answered expertly in those links in more detail than I can provide in the video comments. 🙂

*To answer a question I know I will get in the comments:

* Yes, it’s OK to feed your dogs ‘RAW’ bones. It’s only cooked bone you should never feed your dogs – Cooking the bone makes it undigested, brittle and prone to causing obstruction of the g-track and a perforated bowel. Canines are meant to digest raw bones and have been doing it for millions of years. Don’t take my word for it though, I’m just some guy on YouTube… lol. Do your research. I’ll provide some links down below if you’d like to do that. I’ve been feeding this way for over 20 years with great results.

*Muk-bang or mukbang is an online broadcast in which a host eats large quantities of food, while interacting with their audience. Usually done through a webcast.

* I feed my dogs the B.A.R.F. Diet (Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods). Here are a couple of books on the B.A.R.F. diet I recommend by DVM Ian Billinghurst.

  • A Healthy Way to Diet and Lose Weight

    There are numerous weight loss products available today, and all of them claim to be the answer to your weight loss and diet problems. Many of these diet and weight loss products make unreasonable claims of being the answer to rapid weight loss, although rarely do these products actually fulfill their claims.

    What you need is a healthy way to diet and lose weight; This is the only sure method of getting rid of those extra pounds and keeping them off. One of the reasons that most diets fail is because they are too restrictive in one way or another. These types of diets restrict your calorie intake, carbohydrates, or fat, and when a diet is this restrictive you are setting yourself up for failure. You may lose weight, as long as you are on the diet, but not only are these types of diets very tough to stick to, but you will likely gain all the weight back, as soon as you stop the diet.

    The only true answer to permanent weight loss is a healthy diet and weight loss program that allows you the nutrition that your body needs, and increases your metabolism. Without this, any weight loss you manage could be temporary, and when you do gain the weight back, you may end up weighing more than when you started.

    The best way to lose weight is the old fashion way, by eating lower calorie meals that are nutritious, and by exercising to build your muscle and increase your metabolism. This is one of the reasons why exercise is so important to weight loss; not only does the activity help you burn calories, but if you are building muscle, you are increasing your metabolism, which will help you burn even more calories.

    If you want a healthy way to diet and lose weight, your first step should be to find out what your normal weight should be, and then use a calorie calculator to research how many calories you will have to cut in order to reach your weight loss goal. Your second step should be a good exercise routine that includes both a cardio workout, and a muscle-strengthening workout. If you do this you will begin to lose weight, both from cutting calories, and from increasing your metabolism.

    Before starting a new diet or exercise program it is best to consult your doctor about your weight loss plans.

    Zojirushi Bread Machines Review

    Appropriate machine for the appropriate use. With the invention and innovation of man, Zojirushi Corporation has produced a technology that can make the home-lives of wives and cooks far more comfortable in the guise of bread machines.

    With just a couple of hundred dollars, getting freshly bakes bread for your family will have easier access to your homes. You can get Zojirushi Bread Machines for that.

    The great news? The models cover about any recipes ranging from plain white bread, to wheat bread, to buns and rolls, and to that multi-grained sourdough. You'll certainly have no problems handling it. How sweet is that?

    Regardless of you a professional chef or an enthusiast wanting to prep up some bread, you'll find that Zojirushi bread machine models are rather convenient to use with its functions.

    You'll see that the progress of the models being brought out to the market are becoming more and more sleek. Prepare to be presented with a long array of features as the large view windows, control panel, preset programs, as well as custom programmable ones – other other things.

    Whipping up those bread, then, will be effortless at best. But that is hardly unbelievable also given the years of existence the manufacturer has been in the industry and market. How many is that? Simply ninety years since it first introduced its first product. You read that right, big 9-0.

    Although bread machines were of course not manufactured during that time, the company's philosophy has not pretty much changed. This reflects well from their vacuum bottles to their bread machines.

    Maximizing the cutting edge of technology, customers' experience in the kitchen are way better and more comfortable, bringing out equally great results, as well and as it should be.

    While you can use teaspoon in exchange for spoon, it is not always appropriate. And as you use the appropriate machine in creating bread, you likely go for the appropriate brand, right?

    Juicing Tips for Better Health

    If better health is at the forefront of your mind, then you may want to consider juicing as an addition to your daily mealtime regimen. Juicing can be a way to get more fruits and vegetables into your body without having to spend time cooking them in the kitchen.

    People become juicers for many reasons. Some like to use a juicing fast to cleanse their system and launch a better health diet. Others use juicing as a way to shed pounds. Many people just use juicers to start implementing better foods into their diets.

    Cooking your foods often destroys many of the nutrients and enzymes found in your food that improves your health. By using a juicing machine, you keep all of those healthy benefits intact.

    Juicing even helps you maintain the great tasting qualities of your fruits and vegetables, without you having to add sugars or fattening additions to the food to make it edible to your tastebuds.

    The process also saves you money, because buying pre-made juice is often very expensive. And you can make a meal off of a juice mixture!

    Picking the Right Juicer

    Before you can start juicing, you have to have a machine to do the work for you. There are manual, cheap plastic versions you can buy, but it's highly recommended that you invest a little more into your options, because those will take you forever to get a small trickle of juice into your cup.

    Juicers typically come in three main versions. There are manual juicers, like the one I described above that require a lot of work and arm strength in some cases, not to mention ample amount of time to extract the juice from your fruits and vegetables.

    Some of the manual juicers are very lightweight, so you can not put too much pressure on them. This means you will not get to create larger batches of juice – you'll have to stick to small quantities.

    Instead of a manual juicer, you can consider buying a masticating or centrifugal juicer. Masticating juicers actually chew up the pulp, making it easier to extract the juice from the fruit or vegetables.

    These are single gear juicers, and they work slowly. Some people enjoy the slow juice creation because whenever speed is involved, it means heat is typically a factor – and heat destroys some of the nutrients found in the fruits and vegetables.

    The masticating juicers are quiter than the centrifugal juicers, due to their low speed, but many people prefer the centrifugal juicer to the other options. These juicers shred the fruits or vegetables and then spin and strain it, so you get more juice and less pulp.

    These are high-speed machines, so the noise level might be a bit higher. However, the speed is faster, so the process is complete in less time, making noise less of an issue. If you get one of these machines, you'll remove the pulp periodically if you're making large batches of juice to store for future consumption.

    Each type of juicer will have different results when it comes to the volume of juice it can put out. On average, juicers can turn one pound of fruits or vegetables into a standard, 8-ounce cup of juice, but this depends on the product you pick and the power of the juicer, too.

    Choosing Perfect Juicing Foods

    If you want to feel better and take better care of your body, then your juicing foods should be tailor towards that goal, because some foods are better for you (even in juice form) than others are.

    You'll need to look at your own health requirements and decide which recipes to use for your juicing. For instance, you might be diabetic and need to lower your intake of sugar. Or you might be anemic and need a raise in your iron levels.

    For basic health, always think green. Look for foods that are in the vegetable family over the fruit family because you'll get more health benefits for your body. Fruit has a lot of nature's own blend of sugar and it can pack a health punch by raising your glucose quickly.

    But keep in mind that just because a food is a vegetable, that does not mean that it does not have some sugar in it and some vegetables do contain more sugar despite the fact that they're good for you.

    Even though they contain beta-carotene that helps lower cancer risks, carrots are an example of vegetables that have a higher sugar count than other vegetables, such as cucumbers.

    While green vegetables are very good for you, their juice can be difficult to swallow if you're new to juicing. You're going to want good recipes for these and then start slowly introducing them to your juicing routine.

    You might have read that the minute you make any juice at home, you should go ahead and drink it. The reason behind this advice is because when fruits and vegetables are cut, they start to lose some of the nutritional punch that they pack.

    Since the whole purpose behind juicing is a healthier way of eating for your body, you want to take full advantage of everything that these foods offer you, so enjoy them right after you finish juicing them whenever possible.

    Because juicing requires time (and because that's not a commodity you might have a lot of), you want to take steps to eliminate any part of the process that's a time drain. Waiting until the last minute to gather your foods, get it sliced ​​and diced and then juice it can take more time than you want it to take.

    If you have to get up early and get your day going, the last thing you want to do is stand sleepy eyed in the kitchen chopping up food. To cut out this step, get everything ready before you need it. Scrub any residue from the soil from your vegetables, wash your fruit and get out the cutting board. Dice the foods up and it'll be handy when you're ready to go.

    Remember that if you're planning to use certain fruits like apples, they might turn brown if they're cut and you do not use them the minute you cut them up. They're still okay to use, they're just not as visually appealing.

    Using your juicer for homemade juice is a nice treat, but unlike the less healthy store bought kind, you might end up with pulp in your glass. That's not a problem unless you absolutely can not stand to have pulp in your juice.

    Pulp is actually good for you, but if you do not like it, you do not have to put up with having it in your glass. You can use a mesh strainer – but if your juicer has made the pulp fine, some of it's still going to get through.

    To make sure that the pulp is cut completely out, some people take an extra step of using a cloth material just for training that catches every little bit of the pulp. This might be a good idea if you have kids who are picky about pulp and complain if the texture is not just right. And the softer your choice in fruits and vegetables, the thicker the juice will be.

    Fruits make great tasting juice and you can experiment on your own to create a blend of fruit juices to delight your tastebuds. Plus, many fruits offer additional health benefits by giving you antioxidants.

    Look for fruits that are berries like strawberries, cranberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. Also use cherries, apples and plums to give your body that additional health boost.

    Finding Delicious Juicing Recipes

    Everything that grows does not belong in a juicer. It might seem like a good idea at the time, but will end up tasting horrid. Juicing is not the time to unleash your inner food artist if you are not familiar with what foods will taste good together.

    You can buy a juicer recipe book (highly recommended) but you can also use the trial and error method. You'll know what tastes good and which mixes are mistakes. But since mistakes can be costly, use the following tips to create delicious tasting concoctions.

    If you do not like apples, then juicing is not suddenly the time to decide that you'll like them in a juice. You want to start out by sticking with what you already know that you like. You can broaden your juicing horizons later.

    And if you know you want the health benefits of apples, then you might try working it into a recipe where another fruit or vegetable taste overpowers it. So you still get the health rewards, without having to drink what tastes like straight apple juice.

    If you're going to make vegetable juices, leave off the more potent tasting ones until you're prepared for the stronger flavor. Remember that you can mix your vegetables in the juicer with ice cubes, water and a small slice of fruit to give it a better taste.

    We all have a tendency to be creatures of habit. We do this even when we're trying to eat healthy – we'll just keep on choosing the same healthy foods we've always eaten, but that can keep you locked on a certain food source and you'll miss the wonder of trying new combinations if you juice with the same foods you've always used.

    Do not be afraid to make minor changes. Many recipes advocate sticking with straight vegetable juice or straight fruit juice, but if you do that, you'll miss out on some tasty concoctions.

    Adding a little bit of water can help lessen the strength and thickness of fruits that are too thick as a juice for you to enjoy swallowing. If you do add water, measure it carefully so that you do not overdo it.

    Whatever recipe you use, keep in mind that there is what's known as a "half rule." For every pound of raw vegetables that you use, you're only going to get about half that in juice value.

    Storing Your Juice Concoctions

    For the best nutrients and the best taste, use whatever you create in the juicer right away. But considering how busy people are, quick consumption is not always an ideal solution. So if you can not always drink the juice immediately, you should know a few tips on how to keep the liquid in a container that locks in freshness and as many health benefits as possible.

    Foods change because of the process known as oxidizing. When enzymes in foods mix with oxygen, they turn brown. You can alter this process by storing the foods you've cut or chopped in water. This cuts off the full access to oxygen supply the foods would get out of the water.

    Once the juice is made, keep it as fresh as possible by putting it into a container that you can not see light through. This will prevent the juice from acquiring any exposure damage that it would get in a clear container.

    For the best possible storage for your juice, keep it in something made of glass. One of the handsiest solutions is to use brown tinted canning jars. Glass is much better than plastic for storing juices. If you need to, use tin foil or another dark paper to wrap the glass container in to keep out light.

    Containers that let air in are bad news for storing juices so choose containers that keep the air out.

    You can keep juices with a higher acidic level longer than juices with a lower acid count, but you should not go longer than a day and not use up the juice that you've made.

    Cleaning and Caring for Your Juicer

    Like any kitchen appliance, taking proper care of your juicer will help ensure that your machine creates great tasting juices and lasts a long time. The best juicers can be expensive, and you want to lengthen the longevity of your appliance.

    Always read the instruction manual if this is the first time you've cleaned your juicer, since there's a lot of variety among the different brands and models. Some require more work than others.

    For optimal performance, you want to clean your juicer each time that you use it. This is not the kind of appliance you can get lazy with, because juice in general is a sticky mess if left out to harden.

    The first step is to get all of the pulp out. If your juicer has a built in pulp container, you can clean that out, but you want to make sure that you check for pulp that may have escaped the container.

    Take apart the removable parts and run them under water to rinse them free of any food debris. You can put the dishwasher safe pieces in the top of the dishwasher if you do not want to hand wash them, but if you do, double check after the dishwasher cycle is complete to make sure it cleaned all of the crevices.

    Gently wipe down any electric or motor parts to get rid of any residue or splash, but do not expose these by submerging them in water.

    Clean the blades with a soft brush to make sure that nothing is compromising the blades, but take caution when doing this step because it can be easy to cut your fingers if you're not careful. Do not put the pieces of this appliance together if any of them are wet or damp. Once you've done all these steps, your juicer is ready to use again!
