Who We Are
Cali Raw Nutrition was founded in 2018 by an avid life-long dog mom & entrepreneur, passionate about holistic health & natural medicine. Brandine grew up in a family of dog lovers & hasn't gone a day without dogs around since she was 5.
Her first dog as an adult, was Clyde. He was a golden long-haired chihuahua with a chocolate brown nose, romantic eyes & the most charming personality. Clyde was deeply loved and spoiled beyond measure, but he was fed kibble his whole life. As a young twenty-something Brandine didn't know any better at the time. Like so many of us, she didn't think to question the norm until it was too late.
After battling a long list of health problems, including canine cognitive disfunction & eventually loosing Clyde to kidney failure, she immediately began to rethink the "dog food" she was feeding her other 2 dogs. Astonished by what she found when researching dog nutrition & holistic health for dogs, she now understood why Clyde had years of health problems and ultimately succumb to them. She also now knew why her 2 year old Pitbull had skin allergies & digestive problems, as well as why her 10 year old Chiweenie was quite overweight & lethargic. Without hesitation Brandine switched them both to a raw diet.
As expected, their health completely turned around. They flourished. Energy levels increased, skin allergies went away, weight improved, digestion problems ceased, plus their stool became smaller, firmer & less stinky. Both dogs also loved their new diet, finally licking their bowls clean with enthusiasm. In less than 30 days, her dogs were very thriving in ways they never had on a kibble diet.
Deeply regretful that she didn't know until it was too late for Clyde, she felt compelled to educate her friends and family about the dangers of feeding a kibble diet. It didn't stop there, her passion grew rapidly and eventually she decided to use her entrepreneurial talent to build a company with a meaningful & impactful purpose, a company that would change the world one dog at a time.
When Brandine joined forces with our seasoned animal diet formulator, James Pendergast, his experience & deep understanding of dog nutrition coupled with her entrepreneurial talent made for aforce of good for dogs everywhere. Cali Raw Nutrition has quickly became a recognized supplier of home delivery raw dog food nationwide. Together, Brandine & James continue to push the raw dog food movement to new heights.Brandine has 3 dogs, including Clyde's original partner in crime, Capone the Chiweenie. The princes of the bunch is Dharma, she's a rescue Pitbull. Her sidekick and center part is Bodhi, the comedic French Bulldog; who was a Christmas present for Dharma in 2017. Brandine has been a long time resident of the Costa Mesa & Newport Beach communities since graduating college. She is passionately devoted to the mission of Cali Raw and helping others to enhance their dog's health & longevity with a fresh raw diet.
