The NRBA News Bites is the official newsletter for the Natural Rearing Dog Breeders Association.

I have had some email and internet issues of late and then moved to a new hosting service this Spring as well.  I was sure I sent this email out in April but it is showing up as not sent.   

Some of the following may be duplicates but I am adding new content as well just in case.

Thank you all for your patience, I hope to be getting these out in a more timely fashion now.

Breeder Spotlight - Roberta Jamison

NRBA:  How long have you been raising your dogs “naturally”?

Roberta: I started raw feeding in February 1987 after buying a copy of Juliet de Barclay Levy’s book, the complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog and Cat. It actually took me until 1994 to get off of the vaccine merry-go-round. A Catherine O’Driscoll seminar put that last nail in the coffin for the 5 way shots. It took until 2000 to stop the big R.
