Gain 28 Greyhound feed

Postby Farmer Chow » Wed Nov 03, 2010 5:52 am

I have recently bought an 8 week chow puppy called Farmer.

I have been told by the breeder to feed himon greyahound protein 28% food. He is huigh energy and also a little agressive, ie biting me etc etc. Couldthis be due to the food do you think?

I have tried everything else such as, eeek loudly, clapping, clicker, no, ignoring, etc etc etc. I am now getting really upset by it all and could do with some sound advise. Hope somebody can help?

Regards

Farmers Ma

Hello Farmer's Ma

Out of curiosity, what is "greyahound protein". Is that a brand name of food? a type of food?
I've never heard of that before.

Your puppy should do well on any high quality ( grainless) puppy food.
You can look up brands at
http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com

Going to that site generally informs people who to rate a commercial dog food and helps them understand what are good ingredients versus bad ingredients.
Best of luck

I can't find any actual ingredient list for the food. In the US, racing greyhounds are fed a notoriously poor diet, so I'd certainly not feed a food designed for them. Not sure how it is elsewhere though.

I assume you're not in the US, so I know some of the commonly mentioned brands of food aren't available elsewhere. If you post a location, perhaps someone has better knowledge of what brands are available close to you :D

Grab, greyhound racing is a US venue, so I'm sure the person is in the USA

I did manage to find the food online, and I totally agree with you, it's a low quality food.
While it it high in protein, it's essentially all from poor protein sources, actually they don't even list the ingredients on the website, so that's a good reason to stay away from it to begin with. Poor Greyhounds. I truly wish they would outlaw that sport.
