Dog Training and Canine Health : How to Read Dog Food Labels (Video)

The trick to reading dog food labels (or human food labels for that matter) is to realize that the ingredient listed first is the one that comprises the largest part of the food. So you can judge at a glance which is a good dog food and which is comprised mainly of fillers. Also look for healthy additives such as omega 3, beneficial for dogs and humans too.

To read dog food labels, find either a puppy food, adult food or senior food that is appropriate for the dog’s current stage in life, and find foods made with natural fish oils for brain development. Pay attention to the ingredients list when choosing a high-quality dog food withinformation from a professional certified dog trainer in this free video on dog care.

I Am Feeding Science Diet But Want Something Better- What Should I Look For In Dog Food?

After some research, I’ve found that Science Diet isn’t a good dog food. Since my vet recommended it, I’d thought it would be fine!

So, I want to switch my Papillon and Yorkie’s food to something healthier and with better ingredients.

Any suggestions? When I look at the ingredients and nutrition, what should I look for or avoid?

I know what you’re going through! We are trained to trust vets and breeders, and think they know best, but really… when it comes to nutrition, they don’t always know best.

When looking for dog food, you want something that has no corn in it. Most dogs have some form of allergy to corn. You want the most meat content you can afford. And you want meat or meat meal. No meat by-products.

Also, I would recommend researching raw diets. Even if you don’t plan on switching, it doesn’t hurt to look into it. I switched my dog to a raw diet about 2 months ago, and so far, I am loving the results.
