Wild Calling! #TheArtofNutrition

  This post is sponsored by Wild Calling!, and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network.  I am being compensated for helping spread the word about The Art of Nutrition, but Barking from the Bayou only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers.  Wild Calling! is not responsible for the content of this article.

“Two roads diverged in a wood and I ~ I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” – Robert Frost

Incredible food ~ Incredible Art ~

 When those words were written, little did Mr. Frost know the impact they would make on people.  One particular family that embraces this philosophy is the Petersen’s from Greeley, Colorado.  Their family has been in the dog food business for years in one capacity or another.  When they decided there was not a food they were satisfied in feeding their dogs, they set out to make their own.  In doing so, they took the road less traveled and it has made all of the difference.  They have a story, not a strategy. Their Wild Calling!® dog and cat foods combine “the science” of dog food with the beauty of nature and a genuine love for pets.  It is an artistic idea that they call The Art of Nutrition.

   We all want our pets to have a food that is a good source of nutrition.  That means serving food that will provide the right vitamins, minerals, and other things to keep their bodies strong.  It’s important they have enough calories to maintain a healthy body weight.  They also need enough high quality protein to build their bodies and repair any damage. 
   If our pets were living in the wild, do you think they would lurk around a

wheat field looking a slow-moving stalk of grain for dinner?  No, they would be out trying to catch anything that swims, flies, or runs.  That’s why Wild Calling! is made with 96% meat and why 100% of the fish, poultry, liver, or meat is purchased or produced in the U.S.A.  Each variety of their food is all natural, grain-free, and uses the GlycoEdge to give your dog a consistent energy and a low glycemic diet. 
   What does the GlycoEdge mean for your pet?  It means there are three specific levels to help limit the glucose and insulin spikes; tapioca (quick release), sweet potatoes (moderate release), and lentils (slow release).  As an added bonus, it helps prevent soft stools! They even threw in a little zinc, copper, and iron for good measure.
 As a small family owned and operated company, the Petersen’s first concern is quality.  They did not want to follow the rest of the crowd.  “Pets before profit” became their mission statement.  It wasn’t a fast process, but when quality is your number one concern, you don’t want to rush.  Whitefish, turkey, elk, beef, and lamb are not the protein sources usually found in dog food.  They are all among the first three main ingredients offered by Wild Calling!  That’s because a diet rich in meat and protein help create an optimal amino acid profile for healthy muscle growth and increased energy.
Wild Calling! makes and keeps some Wild Promises!
1.   Wildly different ~ Committed to high quality nutrition.  The family believes in being honest and open with their customers.
2.   The Family Plan ~ They are a family company.  The people that sit around the dinner table are the same ones that sit around the boardroom table.  It’s just the parents, two grown sons, and a daughter. 
3.   Personal is Powerful ~ You’re not dealing with a big company.  The Petersen’s want to be personal.  Consider them a neighbor that you can call.
4.   Remarkable story ~ A very talented friend designed the fantastic packaging.  He lives about two miles away from them.  How cool is that?  It is easy to spot Calling Wild! in your local pet store.  Just look for the prettiest bags or cans on the shelves.
5.   Real Good Food ~ They make terrific dog food.  That is why they won the 2014 Pet Product News Editors Choice Award for Best Dog Food!
   Manufacturing their product in Colorado, they have adopted the ways of the
