Has anyone have any experience with DNM University? In particular, taking the on-line class to become a Certified Raw Dog Food Nutrition Specialist?

I used to subscribe to Dogs Naturally Magazine and I’m always trying to keep informed on what the latest is on raw feeding. Just was wondering if anyone has taken this class and what they thought about it.

Nope, no classes. There's no "latest" on raw feeding. Dogs are all already wired by nature this way since they have existed. Prey model is the most natural way to feed raw. It's simply feeding a variety of different meat/bones/organs. Modeled after the way wolves still eat in the wild.

Well, actually there is.

I’ve been feeding PMR for eight years with fantastic success. And I suppose if you limit the scope of the Raw Feeding subject as “Put biologically appropriate food into canine’s mouth, have said canine’s GI system do it’s thing, and then have biologically appropriate waste come out the other end”, well then, yeah that’s pretty cut and dry.

But, I’m not naïve to think that our food supply chain (both for humans and our pets) remains completely static. “Trust but Verify” holds more significance than ever in this fast changing world. Also, there’s been some very limited research (I don’t even know if it merits the word ‘research’ at this point) into possible linkages between canine nutrition and breed specific health issues.

Back on topic: I am interested if anyone has taken this class and what’s your take on it. Honestly, I’m pretty skeptical at this point as I don’t seem to have a problem getting my latest news via other connections. But, I’m open to any information on this class.

In short, no. It's really not needed, if you understand a dogs nutritional needs. Pushing 15 years of PMR here, and no need for classes. It is what it is, naturally .A variety of raw meat bones and organs. Simple as that. Commercial "raw" is another deal all together.
