Feeding Recommendations

We recommend all natural diets that satisfy AAFCO standards. Smaller, well-established companies tend to have a smaller chance of food contamination from big batches of ingredients purchased from questionable sources. Look on the ingredients list for things you can read! The first ingredients should be specific meat products (organ meat is fine as well as muscle), vegetables, and grains (especially whole grains such as barley or oats). Avoid corn, wheat and soy if possible, especially as 1st ingredients. Avoid raw diets (they are far more likely to spread parasites and pathogenic bacteria). I recommend a canned and dry combination. Avoid obesity by measuring your dog’s food and adjusting the amount if you dog is overweight. People food is great if it’s green beans and carrots but bad if it’s steak and pasta or any fatty foods. Also, ask yourself whether your mind begging at the table before you start feeding from the table. Some people don’t like it, others don’t mind it, but give your dog clear signals and be consistent.
