odin-1The Odin Project (raw feeding project) is named after my Great Dane, Odin. He was born August 20th, 2011. I got him when he was 12 weeks old and I switched him to a raw food the same day. I will follow Odin and a group of dogs from around the world (currently 3500, and growing) all being fed raw meats and bones. I will keep track of them for the duration of their lives and document the results under the names 'The Odin Project' and 'Project Odin' 'Long Living Pets Raw Feeding Project'

Prior to Odin, I have had 3 Danes on a raw diet. Based on my experience and research with my own pack and 80 other dogs from 2000 - 2015, I knew I was on to something very important. The Odin Project is a continuation of my first 15 years. The second phase of this project, which began in 2015, is to increase it to 5000 dogs and 2000 cats. The by 2018 I hope to increase it further to 10,000 dogs and 5,000 cats. 

Every pet has its own file that is updated once a year. I hope this documentation of the benefits of feeding raw will convince more pet owners to start feeding a raw food diet, the type of food a carnivore was designed for.

What I feed

I practice what people call the Prey Model Raw, but it is modified. It’s comprised of 80% raw meat, 10% bones, and 10% organ meat; no grains, vegetables, or fruits. I have fed my Great Danes this way since 2000 and I’ve seen amazing benefits from doing this. My Danes have all been rescues so I started raw feeding them at different ages. Some were also vaccinated.

Odin is the only one I did not rescue because I wanted to start the raw diet early with a young Dane. This way minimal damage could be done to the dog’s body from kibble and other bad foods. I will document everything I feed Odin until he dies. The goal is to reach the age of 16 or longer.


Invitation to participate.

I would like to hear from other dog owners who are feeding raw and are willing to document their experience for the next 15 or more years. I hope those who take part in this research will stick with us to the end. I know it may seem like a daunting task, but I have made it very easy and the impact this can make on current and future dog owners is huge.

To make it simple and manageable, I hope to get an update from each owner once a year, a brief summary on how the dog is doing and if anything significant has occurred, particularly health-wise. This should take less than 5 minutes. If you read this and have not updated your pet's information you can do that here: Update

Although my main objective is to prove that a raw food diet extends the life of large and giant breed dogs, any size dog can take part in this project. I would like to show evidence of improved health and lower vet bills in any raw fed dog and cat compared to being on a commercial dog food.


I also study cancer prevention and alternative cures. More about those projects here

Disclaimer: I'm not a medical professional and the advices I provide are based on 18 years of private research and personal experience with raw feeding and different natural remedies for keeping dogs cancer free. I always recommend seeing a professional veterinarian (preferable a holistic) if you suspect any health issues with your pet. 

I lost a dog to cancer and I was determined to never let that happen again, which is why I share this information. Too many pets die from cancer and I know it can be prevented in most cases and many lives can be saved.

All I want in return is your story. I'm building an archive of success stories that will hopefully show other pet owners that there is a natural approach to beating and preventing cancer.

If you decide to follow what I suggest, you do this entirely at your own risk.




Please Read

Over the last 18 years, I have helped pet owners make the switch to raw food and I’ve helped owners that have pets with cancer to beat the disease using a natural method.

I have built up a reputation and the sheer number of owners that need help has become overwhelming. I'm doing this alone and I'm spending every free minute of my free time helping pets so they can live long, healthy lives; that's my life mission.

Sadly, I have to limit the ones I help. It breaks my heart to do so because I know what a horrible feeling it is to have a pet with cancer – I have been there. I am only able to help the ones that take part in my research project. My research and the documentation of the benefits of raw feeding, plus the many stories about how alternative natural cancer treatments and prevention

Add Years to Your Pet's Life and Drastically Reduce the Risk of Your Pet Getting Cancer!


Who is this book for?

This book is for anyone who is sitting on the fence and wanting to switch their dog or cat to a raw food diet yet are unsure how to do it. Maybe there is an element of fear or perhaps you are confused by the conflicting information online and in other books. Everything I describe in this book has been tested on my own pets, and many others, over the last 15 years. This is a beginner’s guide to raw feeding that will provide you with all the information you need to get started. In purchasing this book, you also gain personal access to me. In the forum section of my website I will answer any questions or concerns you may have.

I need your help so I can continue helping you.

A plea for your help!te-6-24-1

I don't like doing this but my love and passion for helping pets are too strong to not ask. I need your help to keep these three one-of-a-kind and very important projects going. Also several have told me: "If you don't ask and share nobody will know. There are many out there that love pets that will support you in your mission to make our pets live longer and reduce the risk of cancer"

  1. The raw feeding project will prove dogs thrive on a carnivore diet. My experience from the first 20 years confirms that I'm on track to fundamentally change how we look at dog food. I just need more time. The goal is to follow 5000 dogs and 2000 cats for 15 more years. The results will produce evidence of amazing health benefits and in many cases a significantly longer lifespan. This will shake the commercial dog food world, and hopefully force the pet food companies to make better food designed for dogs.
  2. The cancer project will prove that the risk for a dog getting cancer is reduced dramatically when fed the right food. The results of feeding dogs the food they are designed for will shatter all current statistics when it comes to cancer incidents in dogs. Raw fed dogs are close to cancer-proof when fed low amounts of carbs and higher amounts of fat and protein.  My study will prove this somewhat incredible statement. 
  3. Natural cancer cure project. I have for many years helped pets suffering from cancer recover and beat it using natural products that cost a fraction of traditional treatments and are in almost every case more effective. I'm building a case file of 200 successful cases, cancer-free for more than 3- 5 years after being beating cancer.

Every day I get several requests from devastated pet owners that need help with their beloved dogs suffering from cancer. Unfortunately, I can't help everyone. I just do not have time. Between work, family and taking care of my pets there is not enough time to help them all. This is very unfortunate and extremely upsetting to me. I lost a dog to cancer and I will never forget the emotional suffering and pain involved in watching my dearest friend losing that battle. I understand what you all are going through and in pains me not being able to help more dogs.

With donations, I can take on less work and dedicate more time to my projects that will eventually help millions of pets. I want to share my findings for cancer prevention and natural cures so more pet owners will see that there are other options. The current statistic of close to 70% of dogs getting cancer is unacceptable to me. I'm on a mission to reduce this dramatically. 

For 20 years I financed this myself and I have plain and simple run out of funds. I had to take on more work and spend less time on what I have dedicated my life to do: Help pets live longer healthier lives.

If you have any suggestion or ideas on how to raise funds for this project please let me know.
