The benefits of a high protein diet for working dogs

By 26/10/2017Nutrition

Your dog’s nutrition is just as important as your own, so it’s essential that you ensure they are getting the right amount of protein in to their diet to keep them healthy and active for longer.

Working dogs need a good quality, sustainable diet to keep up their strength for the long working days ahead of them. They need to be able to keep up their energy to stay active and the protein in their diet aids in doing this.

Protein works to build their strength and preserve their health as well as maintain their energy through the day. It also offers calories which can sustain the needs of active and working dogs for a longer period of time.

Protein provides your dog with stronger muscles, greater bone and body mass, improves nerve function, aids the creation of cells and can help in healing your dog’s wounds. Your dog will even benefit from having a shinier coat and healthier skin due to the higher level of protein.

All dogs need protein in their diet, but choosing the right food for your working dog is essential even from a young age as this will help to build their strength and energy through to adulthood.

At Alpha, we offer a range of different foods for both active puppies and adult dogs, which are nutritionally balanced and formulated for health and vitality. Our foods range from 19% to 32% protein, helping you to choose the right food for your dog depending on their purpose and high performance.
