I am getting rich off the food you order?  lol I don't own the company but I do get 4.80 for a 40 pound bag of dog food that you order from my site. Definitely not walmart retail income by any means but it helps me raise your pups on the food I believe has more to offer goldens then most foods.  What I really get is a piece of mind that you are doing your best for the pup that I loved 1st. I worry about them after they go home with you and want them to excel the way they are meant to. Like many breeders all over the internet feed LA because its good for the dogs not because we are getting rich of of you buying the food. I feed the food because its safe and my dogs excel on it. The company cares what goes into their products and I am a believer plain and simple. We have feed other foods and they just are not worth buying.  That being said I request that This said dog will be feed Life Abundance dog food for any guarantee to apply. You will receive a 26 month warranted on hips, elbows, heart,  eye blinding PRA 1 and PRA 2, also that your pup will not have Ichthyosis if you continue feeding Life Abundance food for this important growth period of 26 months. We feed Life Abundance, all natural dog food for for puppies and adults for the reasons stated below.*As we all know, for proper growth, the correct nutrition is needed, breeding has its risks but what you feed is just as important as the dogs are being bred. If your pup lacks in nutrition or is fed an over abundance of calcium or phosphorus or protein his joints will not grow correctly regardless of his genetic make up. This is the very reason we require our buyer to feed a food that has a safe growth pattern. We know they will grow correctly on this food. Safety is our other concern, the dog food companies have killed a ton of family pets, made them deathly ill and caused family’s a lot of heartache. This company has never had a recall, it is safe with a long track record. For the health and longevity of our pets we feel safe about what we put in their dish everyday. If you choose another food you are agreeing to void this 26 month contract guarantee. We hope that you will consider this food for the life time of your golden, almost all commercial pet foods contain the cancer causing agents like BHA and BHT. To extend the shelf life of commercial pet foods, suppliers must add a preservatives like BHA and BHT. These chemicals are still be found in almost all commercial dog foods. If you feed a commercial dog food your dog will more then likely get cancer from eating it everyday. Lifes Abundance is free of any cancer causing agents. Commercial treats have the same cancer causing agents, for treats stay safe with any treats from LA and give them bananas, apple apple slices, scoop of peanut butter, carrots, green beans, peas and tomatoes! They will live longer lives. Most dog food company's don't have your best interest in mind, they only have profit in mind. They use cheap inconsistent ingredients that make your pets sick. Life’s Abundance has a convenient auto ship program to assure you that you wont run out and your food is made fresh every 4 to 6 weeks. Its delivered to your door by UPS in only a few days so it doesn't sit on a hot truck or warehouse spoiling!! NO harmful preservatives in there food only natural. Our family dogs are living 13 to 14 years because we watch what we feed them and don’t use chemicals, minimize shots and never line breed. The national average death age for a golden is dropped to 11.5 years. Cancer deaths in golden’s has jumped almost every year, I am doing my own study keeping my dogs on only safe foods, minimizing our shots, only using natural flee and tick treatments, and never line breeding. Its working and I hope you will help us with our quest in keeping golden’s healthy and strong for years to come. In the event that you believe your dog can not tolerate this food which would be weird but possible,  contact me with your issues and we can discuss other safe foods that may work for him or her that wont void this contract.
