Meet The Team

Meet the owner, and the dog-loving North Hound Life team!

Grazyna and JimmyGrazyna Szawlowski

North Hound Life was born from my desire to share with pet parents the power of whole foods for their dogs. Having a dog in your life is beautiful and I want your dog to live a healthy and happy life.

I’ve had dogs in my life for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Muskoka we were surrounded by dogs and my parents kept our dogs healthy and happy. This beautiful connection to dogs I experienced growing up is what I want everyone to have. You could say, North Hound Life is an extension of my family, for as much as my grandfather was a veterinarian (the kind that used real food, herbs and nutraceuticals), my mother was a pioneer in selling organic foods and natural health products.  In our home, Juliette de Bairacli Levy's 1955 book "The Complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog and Cat" was opened quite often. The College of Integrative Veterinary Medicine and Dogs Naturally University along with other thought leaders in the natural pet health group (national and international) have rounded out my continuing education alongside my Masters Degree.  I have also completed Supporting Geriatric Health continuing education with Dr.Barbara Fougere. 

For the last few years I was a driving force in a fast growing Canadian organic dog treat company - Flying Hound. North Hound Life is grounded in the same high quality ingredients producing natural, whole food products to keep your dog happy and healthy.
