A dog is a dog is a dog, right? Not quite – at least when we’re talking nutrition.

Large dog breeds need a healthy balance of protein, fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals in their every day diet.

Studying the first 5 main ingredients is important; a mix of corn, animal by-products, wheat, animal fat and artificial flavors within the top 5 ingredients will not provide a balance diet to larger dogs. Here is a list of 10 large breed dog foods you should avoid.

Hi, I’m Kevin Bentley, a dog lover and enthusiast. Though I started out as a cat person, my wife quickly set me on the true path of dog love. Now I’m full-on obsessed with dogs and everything related to dogs. I’ve purchased every dog accessory you can think of, so I decided to collect my thoughts about them on this site.
