Hi & Welcome to the K9sOverCoffee blog! I’m Barbara Rivers, a 30-something dog lover and the blogger behind K9sOverCoffee. I’m also the owner of K9sOverCoffee Pet Services, a dog walking/pet sitting company in the Sanford, NC area, and currently have one IC helping me out with visits (Kelsey).

My Blogging Journey
The blog K9sOverCoffee was born in August of 2014, featuring Missy & Buzz, my two Boxer Mixes.
After Missy’s cancer diagnosis, treatments, & recovery throughout late 2014/ early 2015, the blog’s focus has been on dog health using a combination of daily physical & mental exercise, a healthy, ideally raw, diet, and natural alternatives to chemical based skincare & pest prevention products.
Do You Want Your Dog To Be Healthier, Too?
Is your dog bothered by various ailments such as ear infections, itchy skin and other allergies? Have you considered incorporating lifestyle changes to offer your pooch some relief?
For the past two years, I have successfully been feeding minimally processed dog food (mainly raw after a quick detour via home cooked food), replaced topical pest preventatives with non-toxic natural ones, and reduced our vaccine regimen.
The results speak for themselves – both Missy & Buzz have shiny, glossy coats that don’t smell, clean teeth, are no longer bothered by allergies or ear infections and are at a perfect weight.
My K9 cancer survivor Missy in particular has never been healthier. It’s truly amazing what impact a species appropriate, raw diet can have in combination with daily exercise.
