saved my dog's life

Utterly brilliant. Following Conor’s advice has literally saved my dog’s life. Feeding Dogs is a wonderful book, easily accessible. Scientific, beautifully researched. This should be compulsory reading for veterinary training. I believe all my dogs will live longer healthier lives with the knowledge I have gained from this book.

Improved drastically

Our  Boston terrier Bruce had been suffering from recurrent regurgitation, gagging sounds and weight loss for over 4 months. Since taking the advice of Dr Conor, Bruce symptoms reduced drastically. Slowly, he seems to getting back to his playful personality. This course has been a blessing, so much knowledge is shared. His tips are no-nonsense and straightforward. Highly recommended and your dog would definitely thank you.

miracle product

We had what we thought was a very fussy St Bernard who was a nightmare to feed! He would also get mad zoomies after he did eat – after two weeks on this he is LOVING all his food! He’s always calm and happy after each meal! I’m so amazed at the change in him! And just regret we didn’t find it sooner for him!

Why Dogs First?


Because I literally wrote the book on Raw Feeding Dogs!

I’m Dr. Conor Brady, author of Feeding Dogs, the top rated manual on canine nutrition on Amazon. I am an award winning pet food manufacturer, and I hold a doctorate in the effects of nutrition on the behaviour & gut morphology of mammals.

I’ve been doing this a long time – researching, writing and reporting on the pet industry from the inside out. It’s clear there is a dizzying amount of bad information out there and people are confused. 

Dogs First was established to provide pet owners with a source of trusted, no-nonsense, well researched, factual information. I have no agenda to sell you a specific food product and I will always, always put the dog first.

Dogs First was established to give dog owners no-nonsense, well-researched, factual information on all things canine nutrition and natural health.

It’s clear there is today a terrible amount of bad information out there, much of it a result of the unregulated influx of corporate cash into our veterinary sector. We’ll do our best to protect you from the worst of it but for now trust absolutely nothing in a packet with a picture of a dog on it.
