We appreciate your patience and continued support and look forward to a day when operations here at DRBC and life in the community in which we serve return to a better state. Until then, please stay safe and be well. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

DRBC Diet and Nutritional Approach

Nationally, the average lifespan for the dachshund breed is 12-14 years. Our nutritional program has allowed DRBC to increase that average to 16-18 years. The best news is that this number is trending upwards with 12 of our doxies having past the age of 20 yrs.

The difference? Our diet. Aimed at a long life, it represents a proactive approach to sound health by targeting major organ systems including the heart, kidneys, and spine. DRBC is pleased to be partnered with the University of Pennsylvania and Royal Canin in our efforts.

Recalls

These days it is difficult not to think about the high level of recall experienced by many dog food manufacturers. It is a reflection of the lack of quality. DRBC is diligent in our review of foods. We follow this rule: If food is recalled, it is placed on our banned list for a period of five [5] years. If recalled a second time during that five year period, it is banned permanently. It is that simple.
