With all the different kinds of dog food out there, it can be quite challenging to decide on the best German Shepherd diet for your dog. Diet plays a very important part when it comes to your dog’s wellbeing so I know how badly you want to get this right.
What foods we allow our dogs to eat will ultimately determine how long we’ll be lucky enough to be graced with their presence in your lives.
5 Tips For Maintaining A Healthy German Shepherd Diet
Things that may not seem important sometimes play a big role in our dog’s lives. This includes what goes into their bellies, so let’s have a look at what your dog should be eating.
1. What’s In The Food?
Lately, it’s become quite important to read the labels on your dog’s food. Dog food companies often add fillers and meats from unknown sources that may or may not contain the drug used for euthanasia. Make sure any foods you choose contain real food from a known source, like fish.
2. A German Shepherd Diet Needs Fat
These dogs need fats in their diets to keep their skin and coats healthy and shiny. Make sure not to overfeed it since too much fat can lead to other health problems like obesity.
3. Feed A Variety Of Ingredients
German Shepherds, just like us, also get bored with eating the same thing every day. Make their lives a bit more interesting by adding variety to their doggy menus.
German Shepherds are high-energy dogs. To keep up this lifestyle they need lots of energy from their food. Protein also helps them to regulate their body temperature.
5. Know The Limits
Overfeeding your German Shepherd May lead to obesity which in turn leads to a bunch of other health problems.

I’m Rita and I’m crazy about animals. I’ve been lucky enough to have had all sorts of pets throughout my life. This, along with my years of experience working as a professional dog trainer, has given me the opportunity to learn a lot about their care and behavior. I have several animal-related qualifications including dog training, equine science, and nature guiding. I live in sunny South Africa, where you can find me out walking my dog or caring for my rabbits when I’m not working.
