What You Should Know
While Poochles takes the greatest of care, as a pet parent it is important that you know what food patterns suit your dog's breed and age.
When you think about the ideal diet for dogs, you probably think about the dog as a carnivore. While meat is definitely the most important nutrient in a dog’s diet, dogs are not strictly carnivorous – they are not obligate carnivores like cats.
Your dog requires a significant amount of protein in his diet to support his growth and development – it also provides him with energy to support his metabolism and various bodily processes.
The next most important nutrient is fat which is a highly concentrated source of energy for dogs and essential for healthy skin and coat. Your dog also needs a balance of omega fatty acids to keep his immune system working properly.
Though protein and fat are the most important nutritional considerations for dogs, you should not forget about carbohydrates. Because dogs are primarily carnivorous, they have a limited ability to digest plant products.
Dogs do not have specific requirements for carbohydrate in their diet, but modest amounts of carbohydrate can provide him with dietary fiber to support his digestive health as well as key vitamins and minerals to ensure nutritional balance. Ideally, your dog’s diet should contain no more than 5% dietary fiber but as much protein as possible – somewhere in the 15% to 30% range. For fats, aim for a crude fat content between 10% and 30%.
Do You Need Breed-Specific Dog Food?
While the basic nutritional needs of dogs do not change significantly from one breed to another, certain nutrients are more important for some breeds than for others. For example, small-breed dogs have very fast metabolisms so they generally require a diet that is higher in fat than would a large-breed dog. Another example is the fact that large and giant breeds have a higher risk for musculoskeletal problems than small-breed dogs, so bone- and joint-supporting supplements like glucosamine and chondroitin play an important role in the diet for these dogs. As long as you have a basic understanding of your dog’s nutritional needs you can find a dog food formula that will meet those needs using fresh, high-quality ingredients.
Do not fall into the trap set by low-quality pet food manufacturers who sell breed-specific formulas that offer low to moderate nutritional value at best – these manufacturers also tend to make use of non-nutritive fillers to bulk up their products as well as plant-based proteins to increase the protein content without actually adding more meat. If you really want to make sure that your dog receives a nutritious diet catered to his unique nutritional needs, your best bet is to choose a high-quality dog food recipe that is formulated for dogs of his size. If your dog has food allergies or a sensitive stomach, choose a grain-free or limited ingredient diet – you may also need to make additional considerations if your dog has a medical problem.

Just like a proper functioning digestive system plays a huge role in a human’s well-being, it also contributes to a canine’s overall health. And since pet-parents are the one’s cleaning up their dog’s bowel movements, it is wise to be concerned if something seems out of order.
