Nutrition and Diet

Healthy dog food, isolated on white.webp

As with humans, canines need a balanced diet to be able to thrive. Unable to make their own choices of diet, we, as their owners, are responsible for what they eat. By providing a nutritious diet, we in return may be rewarded with a companion who is fit, healthy and who hopefully will live a long and happy life. Many conditions that are seen by vets, are as a result of what is consumed by dogs, and obesity is on the increase in dogs which can lead to a number of serious health issues,. These can be physical and psychological. Sometimes, by amending a dog's diet just a little, it can help to ensure they are receiving better nutrition and reducing the risk of long-term or life-threatening conditions. Meals can be supplemented, or changed, to help support many medical conditions

Diet has been shown to have an affect on a dog's normal behaviour and a dog that is in pain, or not feeling well, may communicate this with undesirable behaviours.

During training, or an Emmett treatment, diet often gets considered where there is a behavioural issue, general health concern, or to better support a known condition. Please feel free to ask for advice during these sessions
