We often make New Year's goals for ourselves, but what about for our pets? This year consider a healthier diet or a better exercise regime for your dog or cat (which also may translate to better exercise for you too)! Of course we can help you improve your pet's diet whether it be through treats or foods.


In 2011 Tail Blazers will continue our commitment to provide you with only the healthiest available pet food and treats on the market!

With Sincere Thanks,

Brent Hauberg,
President of Tail Blazers

Farm Fresh Food - "The Next Best Thing to a Home Cooked Meal"

Farm Fresh

Farm Fresh Food, made in Carstairs, Alberta, is available in both raw and cooked formulas.  Farm Fresh
Pet Foods has chosen unique combinations of carrots, sweet potatoes, potatoes, alfalfa, oatmeal, flax, canola oil, raspberries, Saskatoon berries and kelp to supplement the base of beef or bison ensuring a nutritious and tasty meal for your dog. Additionally, whole eggs (shells and all) are added for a healthy calcium/phosphorus ratio.


Each formula contains only one protein source, either beef or bison. 

  • Bison and Berries formula contains bison, Saskatoon berries, lentils, vegetables and supplements (such as flax and eggs).
  • Beef and Oatmeal formula contains beef, oatmeal, vegetables and supplements.
  • Grain Free Beef formula contains beef, raspberries, vegetables and supplements.


Cooked food is a convenient way to feed your dog naturally whether you are at home, travelling, camping, or just out for the weekend. You can feed a fresh food that only requires refrigeration after opening. Cooked food is available in 1 pound portions in a Beef and Oatmeal recipe. It is semi-moist and cuts easily with a knife. Also makes a great training treat or kong stuffing!

Defining "Health Food Store For Pets"

As you may have noticed, we are Tail Blazers "Health Food Store for Pets".  What does this mean exactly? It means we take your pet's health seriously. We carry only foods, products, and treats that we would feed our own pets. ALL our products and foods are natural, health promoting and have gone through stringent scrutiny to ensure they meet our quality standards in all areas.

And of course, ALL of our foods are species appropriate. Species appropriate means just that - the proper ingredients that are appropriate and health giving to each animal or species. Cats are carnivores and get all of their nutrient needs from meat, and dogs are omnivores, which means they too need mostly meat.
Many stores claim to be "health food stores" but have sub-par standards and include grocery store quality foods as well. If you are unsure about how to read a label, then how do you know which foods are ok, and which foods are not? If it's not species appropriate with a good safety record, you won't see it at Tail Blazers!

We always have been a "Health Food Store For Pets", and always will be, and are here to help keep your pet healthy!



Did you know that proper storage of your pet's food is important?


Dry (Kibble)

Dry foods should always be stored in a cool, dry place. Moisture and heat can cause mold and bacteria growth as well as degrade certain nutrients. Avoid storage in damp basements and laundry rooms. Ensure bag is properly closed after each use: rolled tightly down as far as possible anHealthy Dogd held with clothes pins or clips if necessary. Keep food in the original bag, even when transferring to large air-tight containers to prevent degradation due to air and light exposure. Use within 3 months of opening and do not freeze it. You should always keep your UPC and lot number incase the food needs to be traced due to recall.


Unopened cans should be stored in a cool place. After opening, refrigerate unused portions by transferring to an airtight container, preferably glass. Discard unused portions after 3 days in the fridge.


Defrost and store raw food in an airtight container in the fridge. You can defrost up to three days worth, but discard any unused portions after three days.
