A good product begins with top shelf raw materials. Nutritional percentages mean nothing if the raw materials are inferior.
The manufacturing facility should be clean and orderly. Proper food handling, pest control and sanitation are the first responsibility of the manufacturer. Sanitation and pest control management are just as important as components on an ingredient list.
Our marketing ideology is simple: We feed Sport Dogs. Sport Dogs are our passion. IE: Schutzhund, Ring Sport, various types of Hunting, Herding, Coursing and Sled Dogs. The formula works quite well with less active dogs, providing the appropriate kilocaloric adjustments are made.
To better address the growing orthopedic and allergy concerns, we have slowly made carbohydrate and protein changes to adapt to these health considerations.
We are quite comfortable with this new strategy and the results continue to be impressive. If you are seeking the academic evidence that prompted these changes feel free to contact us.
Our product embraces most of the natural rearing disciplines. We refer to our position as a modified natural rearing philosophy. We endorse feeding meat!
We also feel protein parameters should not exceed meat and dairy product percentages (about 20%). We encourage the integration of dry product and flesh foods.
