Our Story

Hello Dog Lovers! We’re so glad you found us.

My name is Riesa Renata from Melbourne, Australia, and together with my furry sidekick – Bowie – we are the creator of Master Bowie. I am a trained graphic designer and an avid home cook who loves creating MasterChef meals for my Labrador, Bowie. I am very passionate about inspiring other dog parents to live the best, happiest and fullest life with their dogs through diet and lifestyle.

Having Bowie has certainly opened me up to a new world – DOG WORLD!! He is the inspiration and mascot of Master Bowie. Bowie is my first pet dog. I still remember when I first met him – he’s the liveliest one out of the litter – and oh boy, how he has changed and enriched my life. As first-time parent to a pup, nothing prepares me for raising a pup. I learn as I go and as Bowie’s adjusting his new life with me, so am I. That’s how Master Bowie journey began – it’s an honest documentation, exploration and insights of living with my furry best friend.

Our journey is a constant learning as we explore the world through our curious minds, and Bowie never stops to amaze me. He constantly challenges and pushes me, but he also gives me unconditional love, loyalty (the food may have contributed to that!!) and passion for dog health, wellbeing and welfare.

My fresh food feeding journey with Bowie started 6 years ago when he suffered from multiple digestive issues. Since switching to a fresh food diet, Bowie’s symptoms subsided and never returned. This experience, combined with my love and strong desire to see Bowie live the healthiest, longest and best life possible, encourage me to study more about whole foods and dog nutrition. I completed my Raw Dog Food Nutrition Course with Dogs Naturally in April 2020. I truly believe in the healing power of whole foods and that good health starts with good food.

Master Bowie is a hub and an inclusive dog community where I am –

  • Sharing dog nutrition information, health tips and drool-worthy dog-friendly recipes. Check out ‘Recipes’ or our Instagram page.
  • Sharing valuable resource of information from my personal experiences and research I have done – from dog training and behaviour to lifestyle, health and wellbeing. Explore ‘Life with Dog’.
  • Sharing inspirational stories of human-canine bond and people in the animal world who are doing amazing things with and for dogs. Check out ‘Bowie & Friends’.
  • Creating a safe loving non-judgemental community where all dog lovers can share, learn, inspire, cry and laugh at their pet dog antics and escapades. Master Bowie page also serves as a platform for animal welfare and advocacy where I regularly support, donate and fundraise for dog rescue groups and animal charities.

We know the difference dogs make to life, so let’s celebrate this. Join Master Bowie community and follow Bowie and I on Instagram or Facebook.

Much love,
Riesa & Bowie
