As a responsible dog trainer I am successfully feeding my dogs according to the principals of the B.A.R.F. Diet. This Diet is the Bones And Raw Food or Biological Appropriate Raw Food dog diet and something to keep your dog healthy on a natural way.
Feeding your dog the natural way is the best that could happen to your dog. Feeding raw meat, bones, fruits and vegetables is what doggies tummies are made for. Many people are asking me why this should better then those pet food products. Counter question: What would a wolf eat? Would he cook his rabbit after hunting them? – The answer is NO! The dry dog food or the dog food in cans are not the natural diet and in my opinion are responsible for many diseases. Just ask yourself why do so many dogs die of cancer? Why do they get neurodermatitis? These are all human diseases and not typically for dogs. Where do these diseases come from? Did something change? Many questions are coming up and my answer is simple: YES, the food has changed! Compound feeding for pets are on the market since the sixties and that´s basically the time when pets, especially dogs started to get sick.
The B.A.R.F. Diet is the natural way of a dog diet and brings as well many benefits. It can help to reduce the unwanted doggie smell, change their nasty yellow teeth and the big stinky dog pooh can dwindle to a very small none smelling pooh, just to name a few.
Dog food from the supermarket and food of many big brands are full of chemicals, artificial flavours and do contain animal remains. These additives are obviously not healthy at all. Another problem for dogs in today’s pet food is the high amount of wheat (60-90%), cereals, grain and soy that is found mostly in the dry pet food. Dog food manufacturers are using these ingredients for only one reason: It is cheap and can dilute the pet food! This way they can produce more pet food having a low cost ingredient. Unfortunately this is not a healthy solution for our dogs. Even if there would be real meat in those pet foods, the dog wouldn’t be able to get the nutritious from it, as their stomach is struggling to digest the hips of cereals, grain and soy. Dog food manufactures do as well cook the ingredients way too long so that the results is a mash, which lost all good vitamins and nutrients. Keep in mind: after the excessive cooking process they press the food mash into small cans. Let’s be honest, our dogs wouldn’t actually eat this kind of food. Saying that, our dogs actually like this kind of food and most dogs don’t even consider chewing the dry food and just swallow it. This is due to a trick used by the dog food manufacturer as they add to the dog food a lot of fantastic flavours and aromatic essence into it. This trick fools our dogs so they assume a good and nutritious meal.
Is your dog nervous and jumping around after a long walk as you would have never walked the dog? This could be caused by the big amount of cereals in the dog food, which gives your dog an unwanted boost of energy, hyper activity. The B.A.R.F. diet provides your dog with balanced nutrition, which gets the dog the right amount of energy to stay relaxed and calm.
A dog is canine, and they have the same stomach as wild wolfs or dingos. Feed your dog big raw bones, they love it and these are natural and cheap. The interesting fact here is: They use the bone as we use the tooth brush! While chewing the bone the mouth stays fresh and it also cleans the teeth. Feeding raw meat provides a lot of vitamins, minerals and all the nutritious important for a healthy dog. Also important along with bones and meat, you should provide a regular mix of vegetables, fruits and even egg or yogurt to feed your dog a perfect diet.
