Brian Redd is well-known to DJs around the world for his YouTube videos dispensing great advice on everything from using wireless lighting to setting up truss to dealing with difficult clients. Now, the popular practice-and-enjoy DJ has turned his attention (and his video recorder) to another thing that’s very important in his life – his pit bull “Cookie.”
In August, Redd released the first of what will be a series of videos chronicling his efforts to introduce his pudgy pit bull to a healthier lifestyle in the hope that it will inspire other people to take better care of themselves and their pets. Redd knows firsthand how switching to a healthy diet and lifestyle can make a difference. After a stroke paralyzed his left side and made it difficult to speak, Redd followed his doctor’s advice and embarked on a new health regimen, which helped him regain almost all of his capabilities.
Cardinal Pet Care is supporting Redd’s efforts by donating Pet Botanics food, treats and training rewards for him to use with his Cookie. After a friend told him about Pet Botanics dry dog food and its many benefits, Redd contacted Cardinal Pet Care about his plans for chronicling Cookie’s road to health on YouTube. The company, which makes a variety of healthy grain-free products, agreed to sponsor the dog’s video journey.
In the first video, now up on YouTube (http://bit.ly/1d7CNUH) Redd mentions that Cookie is a fussy eater but has already started to enjoy Pet Botanics’ Grain-Free Chicken Dog Food and the Salmon Omega Treats. Additionally, a rash that Redd says Cookie has had for about 2 years is gone, and although he can’t say for sure it was the food, he knows that the food certainly hasn’t hurt.
Redd is hoping that by sharing the journey that Cookie will be on it may encourage other dog owners to take an active approach to their dog’s health and well-being. Redd also hopes to get Cookie, who is not too interested in doing tricks, to learn to shake throughout the series.
