Nutrition...The Foundation of Good Health
Although you may think all pet food manufacturers have your pet's best interests in mind, this is not always the case. Current pet food regulations allow manufacturers to use ingredients that you would never knowingly give to your pet. In fact, you may be shocked to learn what some brands of pet food really contain. For example: the use of by-products (feet, bones and intestines, etc.), chemical preservatives (BHA and BHT) and grains that are often difficult to digest (corn, wheat, gluten and soy), which are often used as a protein source instead of meat.
Now that you have made one of the biggest decisions in your family and life. You will need to make sure that you feed your new baby the BEST. Most vets can recommend a food to you. I my self like and use all natural human grade food. When you feed your baby a good quality food with NO BI PRODUCTS in it you are allowing your baby to get the best nutrition they need. This allows them to live a lot longer and a lot healthier. Many of today's pet ailments are caused by incorrect feeding. This often results in obesity, leading to arthritis, heart disease, Diabetes etc. A good balanced diet is the best way to ensure your pet's health.

Growing dogs require greater amounts of protein, calories, vitamins and minerals (particularly calcium). Puppies often double their weight in a short time. Animal protein sources are best for growing dogs (beef, lamb, fish, eggs, poultry). It's important to weigh your dog throughout the first 12 months to check if the weight is normal - you need to know the full adult weight for the breed (estimate mixed breeds). For example, if you know your dog will weigh 50 pounds when full grown, then at 6 months she should weigh 30 pounds you can adjust the diet accordingly.
Correct nutrition is crucially important for every aspect of your dog's life. It affects their health and wellness by offering a vital balance of proteins, fats, complex carbohydrates and the trace nutrients and minerals their bodies need for the growth and repair of their immune systems' .Nutrition is a vital part of your dog's ability to think clearly, lower his/her stress levels and a produce a calmer demeanor. The act of thinking takes a lot of energy. Dogs involved in a training program expend a lot of mental energy focusing on the tasks they must learn.
If your dog starts with minimal nutrition, they become lethargic, grouchy or hyper when they are asked to perform the simplest of tasks. They simply are not able to focus properly and lose concentration after a short period of time or they may become confused. If the dog is constantly being asked to do something they can't comprehend, their confusion can lead to an aggressive form of acting out. In training dogs, the first thing I look at is the dog's diet. I work from the inside out.
Training becomes less and less if the causes for the behaviors are not addressed. Hyper, unfocused and out of control dogs and puppies often are eating foods with extremely high levels of cereal foods such as wheat, corn, and/or corn meal. Aggressive dogs eat food containing higher levels of incomplete protein which do not digest well.
Shy and stressed dogs do not digest their foods well at all and often suffer from intestinal complications such as diarrhea. Their coats are often extremely dry and shed heavily. One way to test the foods you are feeding is to soak the food in water for about fifteen minutes. If it swells in size and becomes somewhat mushy, it is mostly cereal. Are you dog's stools often soft and loose or is the dog gassy? They are not digesting the food properly. By looking at their food, you will do more to help balance their behavior, as well as contribute to their health and longevity.
