Life's Abundance…Because, Nutrition Matters! and They Depend on You!
We put a lot of emphasis on health here at Wisteria Ranch for our English Goldens. We want the best nutritional support not only for our dogs, but for our Wisteria Goldens family members as well.
We use Life’s Abundance dog food and products to provide the best nutritional program for our dogs and puppies. We love that Life’s Abundance meet human grade quality standards and have an outstanding reputation. We provide each family with a Life’s Abundance Healthy Start Pack to make it easier for them to continue the foundational start their puppy has received here at the ranch. If you continue on our recommended nutritional program, we offer an additional health guarantee.
Healthy Pets = Longer Life
Wisteria Goldens Life's Abundance Pet Food Products Formula:
While we have always been great supporters of Life’s Abundance products, attending their annual convention has allowed us to learn so much about their formula, ingredients, and why they have a superior product. They only use organic, human-grade products, and have been using the same manufacturers for over 12 years.
They have never had any of their products recalled.
They have strict guidelines and quality control on how the product is shipped from the manufacturer to the warehouse. It continues with how much inventory they keep on hand, as well as continually improving the delivery time from their warehouse to the customer. We are impressed with their well thought out protocol and system to ensure the highest quality product be delivered to your door.
Wisteria Goldens & Life's Abundance Pet Food Products Quality
Let’s face it — there are many high-quality premium pet foods on the market, but most of them, have had their products recalled because of contamination of their products. Some are cheaper than Life’s Abundance and some are more expensive.
We talked to several breeders, dog and cat, and show breeders who have been using Life’s Abundance products for years. Most of them will not sell or guarantee the health of one of their puppies if the family chooses not continue with Life’s Abundance pet food products. Wow, now that’s really believing in your products!
Listening to Dr. Jane and her passion for healthy pets and providing quality products is very inspirational. It also brings up so many questions for us as breeders. If a family chooses to feed a dog food that does not have the quality of nutrition or reputation that Life’s Abundance provides in the long run, does it save them money? If they choose not to use a dog food we recommend after we have done tremendous research within the industry, should we have any guarantee at all on the health of the puppy?
We are exploring the cost vs. the benefits, as well as what our responsibility as a breeder needs to be in regard to guarantee for health when families choose to feed less quality food. We put so much nutrition and care while raising our puppies here at Wisteria Ranch and would like to learn why some families choose the food and treat products they do.
The brand you feed is the most important decision you can make as a pet parent. Because your dog eats the same food every day, it’s his primary source of nutrition. And a superior dog food can help to foster a solid nutritional foundation, which can help sustain your dog over a long and healthy lifetime.
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.

Life’s Abundance Freshness & Quality
We think the most important quality of deciding on a food is freshness and quality of nutritional food value your pet is receiving. Are you raising your pet to have a longer healthier life? Feeding cheaper food can lead to higher vet bills and a short life span.
Have you ever wondered, when you pick up a bag of dog food from a retail store how long it has been on the shelf? This is something that we hadn't really thought about before. It’s impossible to know the history behind the product you’re holding. You don’t know how long it’s been on the shelf, or how long it lingered in the storeroom before being placed on the shelf. You don’t know how long it was stored in a shipping container, subjected to temperature extremes.
You don’t know how long it was stockpiled in a distribution center prior to shipping. In fact, many mass-produced dog foods are stashed away in tractor-trailers without any form of climate control for weeks, even months. And, you have no idea if proper handling of bags and pest-control are priorities for the packaging centers and warehouses where the product is bagged and stored.
Why does it matter that you can’t know the history of the retail product? As you might correctly guess, the way a dog food is stored can directly affect its nutritional value and safety. The bottom line is, just because it’s store-bought doesn't mean it’s fresh.
Another thing we love is that at Life’s Abundance, they don’t leave factors that impact safety and quality to chance. Their commitment to providing your dog with a superior food goes well beyond the formula and the individual ingredients. To ensure the safety and quality of the final product, they exercise control, from preparation to packaging to storage.

Life’s Abundance Premium Health Food for Puppies and Adult Dogs is prepared in small batches on a weekly basis. They test the quality of their foods to ensure the integrity of ingredients and to make sure the formula is adhered to. Immediately after each batch is prepared, it’s bagged and shipped directly to one of their four warehouses.
Their shipping departments take pride in the speedy yet careful handling of their products. When you place an order, your dog food is shipped via UPS or USPS, with an average transit time of only three business days.
Thanks to their strict adherence to quality and safety, we've created a streamlined process that, in most cases, means that the food that’s delivered to your door is only four to six weeks old.
Transitions “How do I switch?”
We love to provide information to our families to support and increase the optimal health of their puppies, as well as into adulthood increasing the longevity of their life!
We have had many questions about the Life's Abundance Dog food in reply to our “What Are You Feeding Your Pet?” post. The number one question is how do I switch?
We recommend you gradually switch whenever changing any dog food. Here the recommended guideline to ensure a smooth transition:
Day 1 – 2: Feed 1/4 Life’s Abundance and 3/4 of the old diet.
Day 3 – 4: Feed 1/2 Life’s Abundance and 1/2 of the old diet.
Day 5 – 6: Feed 3/4 Life’s Abundance and 1/4 of the old diet.
Day 7: The transition period is over and you can feed the recommended amount of Life’s Abundance.
If you have any further questions on transitioning your dog to Life’s Abundance , let us know.
We attend the Life’s Abundance annual convention!
The conferences are great! They are on Carnival cruise ships — what a way to play and do business at the same time!
We think it is important that we continue to educate ourselves on the products we recommend. We attend the conferences when we are able to because we continue to learn so much about nutrition for our animals. While most families who get a puppy from us continue with Life’s Abundance products we do have some who do not.
We have never tracked why they aren't continuing and what they are using instead. We feel it is important to start asking questions. We emailed a few of our customers and asked why they had chose not to continue with Life’s Abundance and what they were using. Most of the feedback has been in regard to price and shipping.
Pricing & Shipping:
In pricing it really is important to compare apples to apples. You have to look at how much you are feeding with the other dog food in comparison to the quantity of Life’s Abundance. Some dog foods are cheaper, but require you feed more. If you use the auto-ship benefit, the shipping and the cost of the food, treats, supplements etc. are reduced.
Here at Wisteria Ranch, we believe in giving our Goldens the highest quality food and vitamins to help ensure a healthy pet for a longer life, because Nutrition does matter and they depend on you!
