First of all, she states over and over again that a Frenchie should not be left alone for more than a few hours a day because they are companion animals so someone with a full time job shouldn’t own a Frenchie (she explicitly says that if you work all day, your dog will be unhappy with the separation). This is just untrue. I’ve had two frenchies in the past 12 years, while of course, they would love for you to stay home all day to be available for play and to sleep on, but they adjust just fine to a consistent routine. I would even argue that they can thrive and be extremely happy while you are at work. I do have a camera so I can check in or talk to my dog and he is either sleeping or playing happily!
Secondly, the raw food promotion as the best possible food for your dog was a little off putting. Raw food is at best controversial and at worst harmful to your puppy. It is sort of the dog equivalent of the Paleo diet without any research supporting its effectiveness. There are zero scientific studies that prove any kind of health benefit, only anecdotal evidence, and there are several studies that show evidence of harmful bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella present in the food. It is also very easy to mess up the nutrients and cause health problems instead of preventing them. That is why I was disappointed with the hard sell on raw which is great in theory, but until there are actual scientific studies proving the benefits outweigh the risks, it would seem irresponsible to enthusiastically recommend the diet in your book. If you’re going raw, please do the research and consult your vet!
As with most advice, I guess you just have to take what you need and leave the rest.
