Hi, I’m Barbara Rivers – Dog Lover, Blogger, Raw Dog Food Nutrition Specialist, and Author – It’s So Nice to Meet You!

Welcome to my blog
K9sOverCoffee!

K9sOverCoffee was founded by me, Barbara Rivers, as a personal blog back in 2014. That’s when my girl Missy, a 50 lb Boxer mix, was diagnosed with cancer at only 3 years of age. After Missy’s successful treatment, I began learning about the many benefits of a species-appropriate, raw diet and switched Missy and her brother Buzz, also a Boxer mix, from kibble to raw.

And sure enough, it helped. Missy was in remission from cancer for 3+ years before it came back. That’s 2.5 years longer than predicted by her oncologist. So even if it ultimately couldn’t keep cancer away from her, it bought her 2.5 extra years of adventures. It also kept her and Buzz’s teeth clean, got rid of Buzz’s ear infections, and kept their coats shiny and soft.

Raw dog food also helped Wally West with his awful skin allergies. He’s my new pup, a happy-go-lucky 40 lb Feist mix. He came to me as a 1.5 year old itchy mess and desperately needed fresh food in his life. Fresh, raw food cured him of 95% of his itchiness!

I captured our raw dog food journey on this blog and have made it my mission to share the benefits with fellow dog lovers. I’ve written 2 ebooks featuring recipes and basic how to’s. I also got certified as a raw dog food nutrition specialist in early 2020 by Dogs Naturally Magazine University.

She’s incredibly knowledgeable and I haven’t had an easier time with raw feeding than when I read through her blogs because all you need is right there! She also answered any questions I had, personally, and I’m so thankful for her!”
