It is very important to feed your dog a balanced diet. We promote Burns Pet Nutrition as we have found these products to be well balanced, nutritious and contain no harmful additives. Some behavioural problems, as well as allergies, can arise through feeding too much protein, colourings, flavourings and additives.
These are often found in cheaper dog foods and can make your dog hyperactive, mimicking behavioural problems. It’s like feeding your toddler a can of coke and a choc bar at bed-time. He would be bouncing off the walls instead of sleeping!
High energy dogs in particular, such as border collies, boxers and springer spaniels, unless they are working dogs, do not need a high protein content in their food.
Some behavioural problems can be easily solved by feeding the right dog food, and results can often be seen in 2 – 3 weeks.
