Now we have some of the ingredients to the BEST diet for your dog! Why does your dog NEED this diet? Simple. This diet is what was intended to be digested by your dog.
Much like the diets of canids in the wild, the prey model for these CARNIVORES is the muscle meat, organs, and bones, YES BONES, of other animals. It is, in fact, what have fed our domesticated pups since they have been… well, domesticated.
Before the 1860’s there wasn’t such a thing as a bag of dog food. Dogs ate what we ate. They had leftovers and scraps of food from our very own kitchens. Times were changing and a clever entrapenur by the name of Spratt noticed dogs eating hard tack. Hard Tack is cereal grains processed to be non perishable food for sailors on long trips on a boat. The idea for modern commercial dog food was born.
I love capitalizing on a great idea but let’s be honest folks. I have seen dogs eat plastic bottles and cat poop and towels. None of these things would seem to be a good choice of ingredients to feed your dog. NEITHER ARE CEREAL GRAINS.
Dogs, being carnivores, simply lack the enzymes to digest grains such as corn and wheat. Need some proof? Take a look at your pooch’s teeth. Those teeth are super pointy and sharp. By design they are meant to rip and tear and crunch bone. Now look at your own teeth. You (should) have a few teeth that are sharp and a bunch that are flatter. This is because we are omnivores. We were meant to eat berries and leafy greens and Steak tips. Dogs weren’t meant to eat anything more than they could chase down and kill on their own.
Need MORE proof that dogs don’t do well with the grains that your bagged kibble is full of? Go look at his stools. ALL of that money that you paid for that dog food on sale at walmart is sitting in a LARGE steamy pile on your lawn. Not unlike the canids in the forest behind my home, my own dogs who are on the raw diet have small, dry, (relatively)non smelly stools. The reason for this is the higher the quality of food you feed your dog, the easier and more efficiently (less waste) your dog digests it.
In the last 12 years I have seen MANY dogs come through my training programs with symptoms such as excessive sheding, HOT SPOTS, dry skin, broken nails, bad odor, and nasty teeth. Many times these dogs are diagnosed with some ambiguous allergy. They are put on medications and special shampoos and given daily doses of things like benadryl only to find that the chronic ailment never goes away.
When an owner tries a diet change to a GRAIN-FREE product it almost always alleviates these symptoms. There are a ton of other benefits that go along with a raw grain-free diet as well. Your pet will smell better, shed less, feel better, and act better. Their energy will balance out. Lethargic dogs will be more bouncy and the overenergized dog will be a bit more calm. Another overlooked benefit for all of the puppy owners reading this blog is that your dog will drink LESS water which means LESS accidents and EASIER, FASTER HOUSEBREAKING!!
