The Dog Man’s Choice – Dog Food
Diet is the cornerstone of a dog’s well-being. Providing the right nutritional balance is fundamental to their health, happiness and performance.
A puppy starts out needing about twice as many calories per pound of body weight as an adult dog of the same breed, whereas older dogs need 20% fewer calories due to decreased physical activity and slowed metabolism. There are also 12 vitamins and 11 minerals that are known to be essential nutrients for dogs in maintaining their normal grown and development in terms of body condition, immunity, organ function, vitality, skin and coat and curbing behavioural problems.
Commercial dog foods come in a variety of forms with many failing to provide the necessary nutritional elements essential for your dog’s health. Over the last 20 years The Dog Man has professionally worked, trained and coached thousands of dogs, developing a unique insight into the importance of high quality food intake.
People now widely accept that ‘you are what you eat’, your dog is exactly the same.
Unfortunately, the health and well-being of our dogs is at threat, not deliberately, but through a lack of knowledge and understanding and often through a desire to please. Ultimately, we must remember that dogs are domesticated carnivorous mammals, and that they depend on you for the quality and composition of their food intake completely.
