There’s no doubt about it, agile dogs are under an incredible amount of stress. Your agile dog deserves good food for optimum energy and little weight. So, I’ve come up with some of the best high performance foods on the market for your pet.
One thing to keep in mind when feeding these foods is how quickly your svelte dog can become a porky puppy if he is overfed or if he is not exercised properly. All these food provide optimum nutrition with less bulk, so you will need to feed less when feeding these foods. If your dog isn’t quite the hardworking agility dog, look for the next level down so you don’t make your dog fat and overstress his joints.
Regardless of what food you buy, be sure it is complete and balanced. You can do this by looking for an AAFCO adequacy statement on the dog food package. (AAFCO is the Association of Animal Feed Control Officials). Without the AAFCO adequacy statement, the food cannot be considered complete and balanced.
I’ve tried to include a balance of holistic and high performance foods in my list. My main criteria are protein and fat, but as you see, some foods may have higher calories than others.
