Large Breed Athletic Lamb with Rice

  • PRO PLAN® Puppy Large Breed Athletic Lamb with Rice

    Throughout history, large breed dogs have been bred for either strength or speed, leading to two fundamentally different body types: Robust and Athletic.

    Recent research findings have shown that these two body types actually have very different characteristics affecting their nutritional needs, even during the growth period. For example, large breed robust dogs tend to have more body fat and benefit from a reduction in calorie intake to avoid weight gain. In contrast, large breed athletic dogs spend more energy in daily activities and thus need a higher energy diet. In fact large breed athletic dogs use up more energy even when resting than large breed robust dogs.

    Example of athletic and robust large breeds are:



    Boxer Basset Hound
    Dalmatian Bernese Mountain Dog
    Doberman Pinscher Bloodhound
    German Shepherd Bullmastiff
    Great Dane Komondor
    Greyhound Mastiff
    Irish Wolfhound Newfoundland
    Pointer Retriever
    Setter Rottweiler
    Weimeraner Saint Bernard

    Complete pet food for large breed puppies with an athletic physique (over 25kg at maturity).
