MAY 2, 2014 – By Kris Butler – It seems there are as many strong opinions out there about which dog foods are best to feed as there are opinions about which vehicles are best to drive. And, lately, the dog food companies advertise about as much as the car companies do. So how do you know what to believe? First, you can believe this article is promoting knowledge rather than any one product.
After making improvements to their dogs’ diets, people often notice differences in their dogs’ coats. We believe more subtle changes occur, beyond appearance. Not only are Team Butler’s canine athlete’s physical performance and stamina surely affected by eating food that is more beneficial to them, but we believe every dog’s mental focus and attention relate to diet as well. Consider the highs and lows (from hyper-active to crash) of human behaviors that result from sugar/glucose and carb-rich diets and how that might compare to canine behavior and performance.
