Best Dog Food by Dog Types- Detailed Guide

Hi. Last time I wrote a complete guide describing How to train your dog. This week, I’ll deal with another topic- Best Dog Food by Dog Types.

Although there are a few kinds of dog foods that can be fed to all dog breeds, for healthy growth and development, most dog types have diets more suited for them. These specific dog foods are largely dependent on the characteristics of each dog type. In other words, you need to consider the natural behavioral and physiological features of your dog types if you want to get the most suitable dog food for them. Apart from their features, you also need to consider the purpose for which you want the dog. In this overview I touch on some recommended dog food according to specific dog types. Please note that most of the recommended products here are Wysong’s– that’s the brand that worked for me and the one I endorse, but we do provide other recommendations as well, so make your own judgment and adjustments as needed.

Please remember- always consult your vet what food and diet is appropriate for your dog.

You can easily scroll down the dog types for your specific dog breed in the links below. If your dog breed is not in this list, I provided some general recommendations in the end:

Best Dog Foods for Labradors
Dog Food for Bulldogs
Dog Food for Boxers
Dog Food for Pitbulls
Dog Food for Rottweilers
Dog Food for Golden Retrievers
Dog Food for German shepherds
Dog Food for a Large Breed Puppy
Dog Food for Small Dogs
Best Dog Food for Older Dogs
Best Dog Food For Skin Allergies – Hypoallergenic Dog Foods and dogs with allergies

Best Food for Dogs with a Sensitive Stomach

 

Best Dog Food for Labradors

This dog type has a great water resistant coat and is also a great retriever. Labradors are relatively more intelligent than other breeds and they are known to obey instructions to the letter. This is why this is one of the dog types preferred by the police and the armed forces. Naturally, they enjoy regular long walks with the company of their owner. Labradors are relatively more active than most other dog types so they need more of energy from protein- lamb, chicken and fish. For your Labrador, my recommended dog foods are Wysong’s Archetype (Chicken Variant), Wysong’s Archetype Burgers and Wysong’s fundamentals.

Best Dog Food for Bulldogs

This dog type is usually muscular in nature. Bulldogs like being cuddled all the time and that is why they are referred to as lapdogs. You need to pay more attention to their food as they are very vulnerable to a few health issues. Bulldogs are known to have a very sensitive digestive system. Apart from that, they are also susceptible to allergies, hip dysplasia and flatulence. You need to take note of every food you give your bulldog so that if it develops any allergy, you will be able to easily pinpoint the particular food the dog is reacting to. You also need to take note of the quantities as he may be reacting to the quantity, not to the food itself. This dog type needs less protein because he is not as active as other dog types. Due to their sensitive digestive system, Wysong’s Anergen is recommended for them, but note that due to sensitivity of the digestive system, they should not be fed with ingredients like wheat, corn, soy, added colors, sweeteners and artificial flavors as they are known to trigger allergies. This is not to say that all these ingredients will give your bulldog problems. The point is you have to avoid all of them until you are able to discover all what triggers your dog’s allergies and what doesn’t.

Best Dog Food for Boxers

This dog type is known to be very athletic and active naturally. Boxers usually need at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. Due to its restless nature, this dog type requires a highly nutritious diet to maintain its level of energy. Boxers are known to be very friendly and very energetic. For this dog type, a daily exercise is a must to remain healthy. Boxers can be very restless and that makes them a little difficult to handle. Boxers need all the basic nutritional ingredients in their food to be able to maintain their high energy level. Apart from that, they also require diets with very high protein ingredients. You also have to ensure they get all the necessary vitamins and minerals needed for healthy and rapid growth. Of all the essential minerals, calcium seems to be the most important as it enhances strong bones and healthy joints. Due to their high energy level, this dog type also requires taurine and L-carnitine for a healthy heart.

Recommended: Wysong’s Synorgon, Wysong’s Fundamentals, Wysong’s Growth, Natural Balance Limited ingredients, Buffalo Blue wilderness, Orijen Grain-free and Wysong’s Senior.
If your boxer is a puppy, you might want to go for Orijen Puppy and Wellness Core Grain-free.

Boxers are quite susceptible to allergies from protein. So be very careful with the kind of protein you give your boxer. Due to these allergies, it is advisable that whenever you are able to get the right dog food, just stick to it.

Best Dog Food for Pitbulls

This dog type is agile, muscular and very strong. The biggest problem with Pitbulls is their aggression. Pitbulls are generally aggressive in nature and that is why it is better to own this dog type from the time he is a puppy. When you buy an adult Pitbull it would take time and effort for the dog to see you as a friend. As strong as Pitbulls are, their digestive system is very sensitive so don’t just make them eat anything. Despite being prone to allergies, Pitbulls have a huge appetite so you will need to minimize how often your dog eats to avoid obesity and health problems as the dog gets older.

Despite being known for aggression, Pitbulls can be affectionate and very playful. Generally, most dog types are energetic except when they get old. Pitbulls are one of the most energetic dog type. So they are always ready for a long walk. An adult Pitbull requires about 1400 calories every single day and a lot of protein. Pitbull puppies require about 22 percent protein while an adult Pitbull needs about 18 percent protein. Since this dog type is an energetic one, it requires a lot of fat as a major source of energy so you need to consider dog food with a lot of protein and fat. Puppies require about 8 percent of fat while adult Pitbulls require about 5 percent in their diet.

This dog type can be fed with any variant of Wysong’s Archetype, Wysong’s Archetype Burgers and Wysong’s fundamentals Due to its allergies, Wysong’s Anergen, Purina pro plan sensitive skin & stomach and Eukanuba sensitive skin are also recommended for your Pitbull. Other suitable dog foods are Acana & Bartlett pear, Taste of the wild wetlands and Orijen adult.

Best Dog Food for Rottweilers

This dog type is known for its quick and easy adaptability to different environment, and is also quite easy to train as he obeys instructions well. Rottweilers are generally friendly and they also need regular exercise like most other dog types. Rottweilers are generally fearless, they have natural instincts to protect their territory and they can be ferocious towards intruders. This is the major reason they are commonly used as guard dogs. For Rotties, there is a very thin line between being protective and being aggressive and this is why it is a must to train your dog. It can be dangerous when your Rottweiler lacks control. Power without control is very dangerous, so any dog type with the kind of courage, strength and intelligence like Rottweilers without control portends great danger.

To maintain its high level of strength, Rottweilers need a lot of protein and fat in their diet. You can feed your Rottie with any of the following dog foods: Any variant of Taste of the wild, Wellness Super5Mix Complete Health, any of Wysong’s archetype, archetype burgers, dream treats and uncanny.

Wellness Super5Mix Complete Health    Dream Treats   Wysong Uncanny Variety Pack

Best Dog Food for Golden Retrievers

This dog type has been known to be lively, loyal and full of love. They can be restless so they are always busy. They are always full of energy and a daily long walk is a must for this dog type. It is an established fact that any dog that is full of energy needs to eat well to be able to maintain his energy level. Retrievers are also known to have allergies and a few other health issues that may become more prominent as they grow older. Due to their allergies, getting the right dog food for them may be a bit difficult. But when you eventually get suitable dog food for them, you need to stick with it.
The following dog foods are suitable for Goldens: Blue Buffalo wilderness, Nature’s variety instinct raw boost, Dr. Tim’s Grain-free formula, Purina Pro plan for sensitive skin & stomach, Wysong’s Archetype, Wysong’s Uncanny, Wysong’s Synorgon and Wysong’s Anergen.

Nature’s variety instinct raw boost

Best Dog Food for German shepherds

This dog type is known to be fiercely devoted to his owners. German shepherds have naturally muscular bodies that become prominent as they grow older. They need highly nutritional dog food in the right quantity to be able to maintain their muscular body and their health generally. On the average, German Shepherds weigh about 75 pounds and what contribute mostly to their general body weight are their bones and muscles. This dog type is strong, intelligent, athletic and overly active.
While a typical adult German shepherd requires an average of about 1900 daily calories, much older and less active ones require a little less. This statistics was given by the National Research Council of the National Academies of Sciences. You must ensure you give your German shepherd a daily long walk or other forms of rigorous exercise not only because he likes it, but also because it is necessary to maintain his health.
All athletic dog types require highly nutritional dog food at the right time and quantity. To maintain their energy, they need food with high fat content. And they also require a lot of protein for healthy growth and development of their muscle. According to Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), a puppy German shepherd requires at least 22 percent of protein in his food for rapid and healthy growths, while the adult requires just 18 percent for general health maintenance. To maintain their relatively high energy level, puppies require 8 percent fat in their diet while adults need just 5 percent. Since German Shepherds are known for their rapid growth, it is advisable to switch from puppy diet to adult’s dog food after about 6 to 7 months. This is important as feeding an adult German shepherd with a puppy formula will make him prone to joint and bone issues.
The following dog foods are suitable for your German Shepherd: All variants of Wysong’s Epigen Canned Diets (Epigen Canned beef, Epigen Canned chicken, Epigen Canned duck, Epigen Canned rabbit, Epigen Canned salmon and Epigen Canned turkey), and some other ones like Wysong’s Growth, Wysong’s Fundamental, Wysong’s Synorgon, Wysong’s Archetype Burgers, Royal Canin Breed Specific and Nutro Natural Choice for large breed adult.

Best Dog Food for Large Breed Puppy

This general dog type requires dog food with meat based protein and fewer carbohydrates. They also need diets with low calcium. Furthermore, vitamins and minerals are highly essential for large breed puppies. Large Breeds are prone to health issues when they begin to grow old. They are prone to hip dysplasia, arthritis and even cancer. You can help them to prevent some of this health issues by putting them on a foundation of sound nutritional diet in their early days.
For the healthy growth consider the following dog foods from known brands: Orijen large breed puppy food and Blue Buffalo Wilderness puppy food.

Blue Buffalo Wilderness puppy food

Best Dog Food for Small Dogs

Small dogs can be fed with any variant of Wysong’s Archetype, Wysong’s Archetype Burgers and Wysong’s fundamentals. Other suitable dog foods are Acana & Bartlett pear, Taste of the wild wetlands and Orijen adult. Your dog does not have to be fed with all the dog foods listed above. Just stick to what he is comfortable with.

Best Dog Food for Older Dogs

Since older dogs are less active, less agile and less energetic, they do less exercise so they need fewer calories, fat and protein. On the other hand, they need a whole lot of vitamins and minerals as they are highly susceptible to a lot of health issues at this stage of their lives. Apart from that, old dogs have more allergies than young ones. These are the main issues you need to consider before you choose the right diet for an older dog. Wysong’s Synorgon will be just perfect for your old dog. Other suitable dog foods are Wysong’s Vegan, Wysong’s Nurture with Quail and last but not the least, Wysong’s Anergen to avoid allergies.

Wysong’s Vegan     nurture-with-quail

Best Dog Food For Skin Allergies- Hypoallergenic Dog Foods for dogs with allergies

Wysong’s Anergen is very suitable food for dogs with allergies. Another good dog formula is Purina Pro plan for sensitive skin and Stomach. These great dog foods will provide needed protein, fat, essential minerals and vitamins while preventing all forms of allergies at the same time.

High fiber dog food

There are two kinds of fibers in dog foods: soluble fiber and insoluble fiber. Whether soluble or insoluble, both kinds of fibers are highly important in a dog’s diet. According to the National Research Council of the National Academies of Sciences, the main benefits of fibers are:

• Fibers promote rapid and healthy weight loss in both dogs and humans.

• Fibers reduce the chances of the emergence of colon cancer in both dogs and humans.

• Fibers prevent diarrhea.

• Fibers prevent constipations.

These are the reasons you must ensure your dog’s diets include a reasonable percentage of fiber. Fiber does not come from any kind of meat. Rather, fibers come from either vegetables or grains. The best and most nutritional fiber dog foods are Wysong’s biscuits, Wellness Core reduced fat formula and Purina Canine calorie control fiber.

BiscuitsWellness Core reduced fat formula

Best Food for Dogs with a Sensitive Stomach

In summary, the best three formulas for dogs with a Sensitive Stomach are Wysong’s Anergen, Biljac Sensitive Solutions and Purina Pro Plan for sensitive skin and stomach.

Wysong Review: Dog Food

There are so many food options on the market for your dog; it can be overwhelming trying to choose which one is the best option. There is a lot of pressure when making this decision because the food that you choose for your dog can have a huge impact on its quality of life and how long it will live.

As a dog owner, you want your dog to have the longest and best life possible. Choosing the right dog food can help you with this. In my latest Dog post, I wrote some great tips for choosing the right dog food for your dog.

While food selection should be made individually for each dog; as a brand, my all-time favorite is Wysong.

In this Wysong review, I explain exactly why this is the case.

Ingredients

Wysong is a highly recommended dog food brand. Their fresh and whole ingredients have high levels of important micronutrients that can really help your dog have a longer and more energetic life. They have a complete line of products to provide your dog with any nutritional needs they may need. Wysong has no artificial additives and no non-natural ingredients. The ingredients seem of much better quality than the traditional commercial food that you can find within your grocery store aisle.

As for the taste, check out this doog food tase test below:

Suitability

This brand is great for dogs of all sizes and ages. The kibble is small enough for even the smallest dog to be able to safely eat. If you have different breeds of dogs in your house of different sizes, this can be a great option for your house to feed all of your dogs the same food. Not only will you appreciate the nutritional value of this line of products, dogs love the flavors that are offered.

Because of the lack of additives, this is an especially great option if you have dogs that suffer from allergies to other foods. This is also great for those dogs that have sensitive stomachs, as well as an option for those dogs that suffer from diabetes. If you notice that your dog has problems with your current dog food, this could be a great option for you to switch to.

Effects

Pet owners will notice that their dog’s fur is shinier, and that their dog has more energy. This means that you are choosing the right food for your dog. Wysong has been a big name in dog food for years, offering a consistently quality and natural product. This natural aspect of this product is what makes it a great option for dogs of all life stages and health conditions, which can help families with multiple dogs feed everyone the same food. If you are looking for a natural and quality product for your pet, Wysong is the brand for you.

Summary: My all-time favorite grub.
