My humans are into variety. Around here, a ridiculous amount of time is spent deciding what to have for dinner. the Mama and the Daddy are one of those really obnoxious couples that ask each other what they want back and forth and never make a freaking decision. Imagine how much time they could save if they skipped this stupid little ritual and just ate the same thing for every meal.
Balanced Over Time
- Buy the appropriate size bag for your dog. Don’t buy the 40 lb. bag, if you have a 4 lb. dog. kibble oxidizes and loses nutrition over time, plus the bigger the bag, the longer your dog will take to finish it.
- Rotate the type of protein and carbohydrate. Try to serve something different with every new bag. We particularly love finding foods with interesting novel proteins like rabbit or buffalo.
- No brand allegiance here! We change brands every single time. There are lots of great foods out there, why not try them all?
- Try to match the nutritional analysis. If you are feeding a low-carb/high protein food, try to create a rotation of similar foods. Jumping from a low protein food to a high protein or vice versa will affect your health & energy.
- Don’t Rush It. Two weeks before you need to, pick up a new bag and mix it into the old kibble a little at a time. If you move to fast, your tummy will get upset.
New kibble day is a big deal at our house. Felix and I get so excited when the Mama pulls out that new bag of a new flavour. That look of excitement alone is enough to convince the Mama we LOVE variety and we bet your dog would love it too!
