ISSUES OF FEEDING WORKING DOGS
Complete and at the same time harmless feeding has a significant impact on the health and, consequently, on the qualityand scope of the service of the working dogs. The practice of feeding a dog industrial dry food received a mixed opinion on thequestion of its impact on the body of the dog. The literature describes contradictory data regarding the positive effects of dryfood on the health of the dog. The preparation of natural diet is a laborious process, but it can be controlled. With dry food youhave to be careful, because there is no ideal artificial diet. Often the contents of industrial ration do not match the nutritionalvalue specified by the manufacturer. Dry food is an alternative natural feeding but it is not the same thing. Therefore, mostexperts in animal feeding do not recommend to constantly feed dogs dry food, but only in case of need (business trip, hiking,field conditions). We should pay attention to the nutritional value of the diet and quality of its composition. When choosing dryfood, super-premium diets should be preferred, and to monitor the health condition of the pet. To buy these foods or to givepreference to natural is the owner’s choice.
