Our Cause & Beliefs in why we chose Life's Abundance!

We are driven by a purpose

To improve the health and wellness of families, and not by profit! Yes, profit is necessary to carry on as a business but with Life's Abundance profits are viewed as a gauge of how well we are achieving our purpose (in how many families we are reaching) it means to further the purpose through innovation and product development. To give you an excellent example, see "Consumers would like to know!"

Consumers Would Like to Know!

We are sure you are aware that Life's Abundance makes millions of pounds of dry dog food annually and if you didn't know, you do now! They have chosen to use Sunflower Lecithin in their recipes. If the company decides to use Soy Lecithin instead, Life's Abundance could easily save $125,000 annually and NOT be required to even change the label. So YOU as the consumer would never even know! 

Now, multiply this by each ingredient in each product and you can see why other companies are devoted to this tactic. This is why it is important to educate the consumers and to align themselves with a company such at Life's Abundance so they can trust and can feel good about where they are purchasing their dog products from. 

You will NOT find Life's Abundance in stores, why?

This is a simple question to answer. When a product leaves a manufacturing facility it's impossible to know if that product retained it's original freshness after sitting in the warehouses on shelves for months on ends. 

Life's Abundance has a better way in that they not only make premium products, they deliver premium products. How you might ask? Well what they do is  make their products in small batches and it goes directly from manufacturer to their warehouses who then carefully box their products to then be shipped out to customers. I don't know about you but If I was a dog, I would want fresh premium products to eat verses some products that have been sitting on the shelves for who knows how long, right? This controlled distribution process allows Life's Abundance to deliver their products in their original premium condition. That's a company we're willing to do business with!

We care about making a difference in your dogs life!

We will listen, we will be compassionate and we will always take time to research information should you ever have a question we do not have the answer to. We have a highly knowledgeable and skilled team of professionals at Life's Abidance "Customer Care Team" who are always available at our fingertips. Service like this simply cannot be found elsewhere.  

Dr. Jane's Foundation

This organization supports small and medium size animal rescue groups throughout the U.S. that are dedicated to helping rescue neglected and unwanted animals and finding them forever homes.

Let's Face it...

There are many high quality pet premium pet foods on the market today.  It can be so confusing about which ones the best for your pet? Through many months of research, we have finally came across Life's Abundance by Dr. Jane Bicks, DVM who is nationally recognized authority on the holistic treatment of animals who manufactures their products right here in the United States.  Dr. Jane has also been seen on CBC's 48 hours, ABC's Good Morning America, Fox's Good Morning New York,  WNET's Romper Room and Reading Rainbow, CNN, PBS, Lifetime, The Discovery Channel, TV Food Network and numerous radio stations including WABC/NY, WNBC, WNYC, WQXR and National Public Radio. Animal Planet’s early days included Dr. Jane as the veterinary expert in frequent segments regarding all types of animals.    

Life’s Abundance is holistically balanced and provides the nutritional harmony that’s important to help your canine achieve and maintain optimal health by improving the health and longevity of our companions. Active breeds like the Australian Shepherd require more calories, but the calories should not be "empty" and that is why we have chosen a premium dog food like Life's Abundance. 


As a caring pet parent, it’s important that you see through marketing ploys designed to mislead you about the quality of ingredients and their intended dietary benefits.

Additionally, some competing brands use wheat and wheat glutens, corn and corn glutens, as well as artificial food colors and preservatives. We never have, and we never will. That’s part of our commitment to you and your dog to provide the safest and most innovative nutritional formulas for a better life.

As your Breeder, we will not pressure you to choose this dog food but if you choose not to feed your dog "All Life's Stages" Life's Abundance dog food then we will at least require you to purchase Nuvet's Plus Canine Wafers or Life's Abundance Wellness Food Supplement. Click on the more section above in the navigation area and then click on Nuvet Vitamins or Life's Abundance tab for more information on that product and to purchase. Which ever product you choose for your dog, you will be required to supply this product to them every day for the next three years of the dogs life in order to keep your "Health Guarantee" in effect. We hope that you choose the dog food and either of the two supplements to provide your dog the healthiest diet you can give them, but we wanted to at lease give you a choice between the products as they are all important for your dogs overall health. Here at Central Oregon Australian Shepherds we chose to feed them Life's Abundance dog food for many reasons, here are a few.

  • The fact that it's human grade and they make human supplements as well.
  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Nothing is outsourced.
  • No artificial flavors or colors.
  • No corn, wheat or gluten's derived from these sources as these grains are susceptible to toxic mold and contamination.
  • Since we all know that Vitamins and Minerals are vital to a dogs overall function of their cells and organs, Life's Abundance includes these important micro-nutrients vitamins and minerals in their premium foods.
  • Zero guess work as to the amounts of Prebiotic and probiotics ingredients in this formula, Life Abundance guarantees the probiotic amounts on their labels. 
  • No Recalls!!!
  • High Quality Protein builds, maintains and replaces tissue in the body. Muscles, organs and the immune system are made primarily of protein. However, not all proteins are created equal. At Life's Abundance, we use only high-quality proteins in our premium health foods.
  • Family owned and run.
  • Easy access to talk with the developer to ask questions anytime.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids are benefits well known, as omega 3's are some of the most extensively researched, naturally occurring nutritional ingredients in the world. The guaranteed amount of omega 3's is perfectly balanced with the omega 6 fatty acids in this formula to support healthy skin, shiny coats and overall wellness. 
  • A dog's body is designed to create only a certain amount of antioxidants on its own. That is why we cannot over-emphasize the importance of antioxidants. This food contains an antioxidant system including guaranteed amounts of vitamins C and E. 
  • And our dogs are just as important to us as our kids are. Why wouldn't you want the best diet for them?
