Art and Karyn Smith have been local business owners since 1988, serving the Naples, Florida community with professional, caring services
. They have owned and operated a number of successful businesses in Naples, and have turned their passion for their pets in to a love they can share with the community. Their involvement in the American Kennel Club shows and Doberman Pinschers Club have led them to seek the most natural way of life for their dogs. Their male Doberman, Sequoia was the Doberman Pinscher Club of America's number one Doberman in 2005. All naturally raised and fed. He was among America's Top Twenty Dobermans in 2004, 2005, and 2006. He attended his first Westminster Dog Show at the young age of 18 months, after that he went on to 3 more shows at Westminster of which the Westminster Kennel Club invited him to attend.
In 2006 he was awarded an Award of Merit from the Westminster Dog Club. He finally retired from his show career after defeating over 5000 Dobermans. This was all accomplished by the young age of 4. All of this led to a passion for the breed and teaching other people how to attain optimum health for the pets through nutrition and natural products.
