Doberman Pinscher dog with cropped ears and red and tan marking lying down playing with a stick

I told myself quite a while back that I was going to have another look at what I had written previously on healthy dog food advice. This is because I thought I was placing too much focus on Dobermans and made myself aware of the fact that there might just be a great deal of dog lovers out there who are looking for more pertinent advice on how to feed their dogs as healthily as possible. I discovered that the sensitive Dobermans have a lot in common with most other domestic dog breeds because if even the layman was following the previously laid out natural dog food focus for Dobermans then most of their work is already done in regard to helping to improve their dogs’ nutritional health.

The best and most basically prepared meals are still going to turn out alright for your dog. This is provided that you stick to the principle of feeding it small portions per each of the three meals that is recommended you should be feeding your dog each and every day. Health-oriented veterinarians and healthy dog food advocates are now all focusing on providing pets with natural meals rather than processed foods that come famously packaged in tins and plastic packets.

Often forgotten and sometimes quite difficult to control, is the matter of dog’s hydrating requirements. They need fresh water every day. They also need their fresh water kept clean throughout the day. This can be monitored. But for those that work during the day, not so. Fortunately, dogs do not and should not be fed excess amounts of water during the day. It does, however, become particularly problematic during hot summer months when temperatures start to soar and dogs start to pant for fresh moisture and a clean breath of fresh air.

I picked up another note from one of my previous articles which is worthwhile repeating here. I found that this particular passage applies to all dog handlers and their canine pets, not just one breed or unique handler, good or bad, dedicated or just plain loving and caring. How much you feed your animal has been handed down in terms of advice from domestic canine experts, but what it really boils down to is a little bit of common sense.

Here are the pointers. How much you feed your dog will always depend on its size, age, build, metabolism and its level of activity. Another important factor also denotes some commonsense in regard to responding to the canine myth that all within its species are essentially meat eaters. It is not a myth, and I am guilty of endeavoring to over-emphasize my dog’s diets with a little too much vegetables with its main meals, dogs do love their juicy meat cuts and this does really come down to their species dependence on protein enrichment.

But for most of you, emphasizing protein in your dog’s diet should not be a problem. All you need to do really, is focus on the meat, but not too much of it, mind you. Remember that portions do need to be monitored quite carefully, and even if you have a rather large dog in your yard, you still need to make sure that it is not over-fed. Exercise care when you feed your dog. Don’t rush off to work and do wait at least twenty minutes to check how your dog enjoyed its meal. Are there any left-over’s from the fresh food you laid down, or did the lad polish it off good and proper.
