Just as we are what we eat, the same applies to our dogs. I do not know about you, but every day I seem to hear about another dog that has tumors or has died of cancer or some kind of organ failure. Something’s not right.
Then there’s the recent pet food recalls which highlighted what the actual ingredients in dog really really are: some of them ended up killing our pets! That’s definitely not right either, and I realized that what we are feeding our dogs could well be the very thing that is making them ill or taking them from us too early.
As a dog trainer, I talk to my clients all the time about what kind of dog food they buy. I have been amazed how little people know about what is in that food. Once I started digging around, and I learned how to read labels, I got mad. We are all having the wool rolled over our eyes, and no one seems to care about it. Since then I have made it my passion to investigate what goes into the bags of food and cans we feed our pets. What I came up with scared me and I realized that I had to be part of the movement to educate pet guardians so they could make better buying decisions.
To make an immediate impact for the better, I have compiled a list of as many of the best dog foods as I could so that people could go out and buy them tomorrow and not have to worry about either they will harm their dogs. Luckily there is a lot of them, and the list is growing, but do not expect to find them in your local supermarket, or even in the pet superstores, most of them are typically found in dog specialty shops, and you’ll have to do some research to find out where there is one near you or order them online. Here are just a few of the best dog foods out there to get you started …
– Blue Buffalo
– Eagle Pack
– Flint River Ranch
– Newman’s Own
– Solid Gold
– Taste of the Wild
Are you surprised by the names? Do you recognize any of them? There’s no Purina, Pedigree, Iams, Eukanuba or Science Diet here. Now, what does that tell you? Shop smart for your dog and become part of the movement: if we all stopped buying these inferior products, the manufacturers would have to start making superior ones, ones we can trust again.
