Choosing A Food For Your Dog

There are thousands of dog foods available, so finding the right one for your dog can seem overwhelming. Luckily, it only takes a little research to find the right one.

When choosing a food for your dog the first thing you need to consider is your dog's lifestyle. If your dog is active all day, like a working dog, you need a food that is rich in protein and calories. Supermarkets do not really sell this type of food, so you need to source it elsewhere. The easiest place to get it is on-line, just search for "working dog food" and you will see several companies that will deliver that kind of food to your door. The smaller makers currently offer the best value for money.

If your dog is a family pet that goes for only one or two short walks a day they do not need a specialist food. Instead, you can buy your food from your local supermarket. Ideally, buy a dry food that is designed for your dog's age group.

If you need to save money on your dog, food bills start buying from the smaller manufactures. They do not make enough to supply the supermarkets so tend to sell on-line, or via pet shops and garden centres. Their food is not cheaper, because it is sub-standard but because they do not have such high production, distribution and marketing costs as the larger brands.

Despite the fact that there are many wet or tinned foods on the market the best type of food for your dog's digestive system is dry food. Changing your dog from a wet to a dry diet can be difficult, but health wise it is a good move. Introduce dry food into your dogs diet gradually, start by adding a handful of dry food to your dogs tinned food. Some dogs will eat dried food if you pour gravy over it.
