I’m Micaela, dog mom to Pepper, an awesome rescued 10 years old Yorkshire Terrier.
I’m passionate about canine nutrition and overall natural care including aromatherapy, and herbs.
In addition to running Naturalist Hound, I have successfully helped to look after hundreds of pets since 2012 through my company Your London Pet Sitter.
I’ve been working with dogs for more than a decade in various ways: from dog shelter volunteer to working as a vet’s assistant and along the way I adopted Pepper.

Pepper started suffering from what seemed to be food allergies around the age of 4, we discovered that he had developed chronic pancreatitis with an underlying strong sensitivity to preservatives, processed foods and intensively farmed meat.
I can’t express enough the benefits that Pepper experienced from switching to a homemade, fresh, whole, organic diet (and wherever possible, the use of natural remedies). To my surprise, the improvements were so quick to show after replacing his diet!
Even though I was feeding him the best on the market, commercial food by nature lacks many important nutrients and it’s filled with preservatives, chemicals and artificial additives.

Prevention is everything when it comes to a dog’s health and wellness.
I took Pepper’s health into my own hands; I began taking courses, reading books, and becoming certified in order to help my boy live better. I started feeding Pepper a home-cooked diet in 2014 and little by little making my own recipes, from mains to treats to birthday cakes. My experience with Pepper’s nutrition and needs brought me to enter an ongoing education in nutrition and natural remedies.

Nutrition is the key to a healthy, happy and long life and I want to share with you my knowledge so that we will help our furry best friends to achieve the best possible life!
