Today I’m beginning a section on dog food, and I expect it to become an ongoing theme on this website.
Dog food? On a dog training website?
The many complex relationships between food, behavior, and health are well known in the world of humans. They are perhaps less well known in the canine world, but they are nonetheless well documented, and there is getting to be a lot more interest in them.
For a long time, I have fed the best dog food I could find and afford, and I’ve made my own dog and cat food off and on for years. By and large I avoid processed food for myself, and so it only makes sense to do the same for the animals I am responsible for.
But actually, it never crossed my mind to write about dog food on this website.
Not until Marley came into my life, or at least my cyber-life. We live on different continents.
Soon I will write the story of this puppy, which convinced me that if we want a good relationship with our dogs, we need to be aware of what they eat and we need to pay attention to how it might be affecting their behavior.
I’m writing mostly on the blog now, as it’s so much easier in terms of automatically updating the menus and also being found more easily by other bloggers and websites. So do keep an eye on this section for more information on dog food! I will be reviewing books and ebooks, telling stories, and more.
