Question by : what are some jobs a german shepherd could do to keep his mind busy?
i have a 1.5 year old german shepherd. It’s come to our attention that in addition to the 2+ hours of exercise we give him daily, that he needs a job also

lol, the vet said that “with just exercise, it’s like having yourself locked in a room with food and a treadmill”

any ideas? it’s really snowy where i live nowadays, i was thinking i could hook up a sled to his back and he could cart snow around, or give my siblings rides or somethin lol

any ideas? cuz rite now his job is to protect the house, and he’s going WAY overboard with the protective gene, he can’t help it

How to Use Nutritious Homemade Dog Food Recipes in a Busy Life

How to Use Nutritious Homemade Dog Food Recipes in a Busy Life

Commercial dog food has questionable quality and nutrition, depending on the brand and their ethics at the time.

By taking control of what you feed your dog, you are taking the enormous step into assuring his maximum potential for a long and healthy life.

If your dog is healthy, you’ll have fewer trips to the vet, saving you probably many thousands of dollars.

But trying to work out how to make nutritious homemade dog food recipes to keep your dog interested, at the same time juggling work, family and home life, can be daunting.

But it needn’t be.

It’s only a question of you getting your head around a few basic concepts about healthy dog food.

For example, seven different homemade dog food recipes gives your dog a different meal every day of the week.

It also gives you a routine which is easy to work and plan for. Shopping just becomes too easy, with the same things to buy every week.

Arming yourself with the knowledge that nature knows best, after all the dog evolved very well without any help from us for aeons, you can come close to a wild dog’s diet.

Enzymes are an all important part of everyone’s diet, including dogs. So you need to ensure these are kept alive and well in the dog food you prepare.

Some nutrients are only found in organ meats, but these can be easily overfed. What is the optimum amount of organ meat in your dog’s diet and which ones should you feed?

There is one essential part of a dog’s daily diet which, if left out, will  cause tooth decay, unhealthy gums and most likely an unhappy dog.

Many ‘experts’ disagree on its inclusion in a dog’s diet. By bypassing the inconsistencies of ‘experts’ and going back to the only real expert – nature – you are not left wondering who may be right and who may be wrong.

Your homemade dog food recipes needs to ensure all micro and all macro minerals are included.

Your dog manufactures some vitamins himself, but others must be included in his diet.

This means you need to know the nutrients in each type of food.

Although your homemade dog food recipes will naturally keep your dog slim and in good overall health, some dogs are naturally fat and some are naturally slim. You need to know how to vary each ingredient to suit your individual dog.

There are many, no doubt well intentioned, people who write that certain foods are dangerous to dogs. However, if your dog is receiving a well balanced diet, based on a wild dogs diet, he won’t be ravenous and will become very aware of the difference between what is good for him and what is not. You won’t need to worry that he may ingest something poisonous to him.

A constantly ravenous dog is normally one who is not receiving a balanced diet, rather one which is devoid of essential nutrients.

For your dog’s sake, learn some homemade dog food recipes. It really isn’t difficult. And your dog will love you all the more for it.

Homemade Dog Food For The Busy Human

Homemade Dog Food For The Busy Human

Busy people generally tend to shy away from home prepared food for themselves as well as their dogs. But relying on others for your and your dog’s nutritional needs is likely to ensure your dog’s health will suffer, if not your own.

What it really boils down to, is time. You think preparing homemade dog food is not time efficient, perhaps messy, and how can you be sure it’s healthy? Don’t commercial pet food manufacturers know more than you do?

No. Commercial pet food manufacturers are chasing the mighty dollar, just as most people are. Generally, they have very little interest in good quality. By the time you have finished reading this article, you’ll know more than they do.

Is homemade dog food preparation going to be messy?

No, not once you have the hang of what you’re doing, which is where I come in. I’m here to help you every step of the way.

Does it take a long time to prepare homemade dog food?

No, once you’ve got the hang of what you’re doing, it incredibly quick and easy.

Just as it can be in preparing your own homemade food.

So I’ve knocked away some of the most common excuses for not preparing your homemade dog food. But, as you still hesitate, there may be one hurdle in the way, which we haven’t covered.

You have been accustomed to believe commercial dog food is better than anything else. Your vet may have told you. Your parents may have told you. You see people feeding commercial pet food all the time. Can they all be wrong?

Yes!

Because none of them are looking to their dog’s origins. Dog evolved in the wild over many thousands of years, hunting in packs in times of plenty and eating carrion or plant matter in times of famine.

In contrast, commercial dog food typically pellets, is not raw or of the quality a hunted animal is. Dogs digestive systems and nutritional requirements have not changed or adapted, just because they are now domestic.

The best way to ensure your dog maintains not just good, but excellent health is to make homemade dog food, based on a wild dog’s diet. Sure, it isn’t possible to exactly duplicate a wild dog’s diet, but we can come so close that it won’t affect your dog’s health.

When you’re shopping in the supermarket, it’s just as easy to buy raw meat and bones as it is to purchase a packet. You can buy enough to keep your dog going until the next time you shop. Freezing food is an acceptable way to keep it, as it is not so destructive as cooking. Three or four days of fresh food and the rest thawed frozen food will be absolutely adequate to maintain good health.

Once you’ve measured out the food the first time, it’s just a matter of routine.

Keeping all the ingredients together means it’s convenient.

By making your own homemade dog food, you have control over the quality and the ingredients. This is critical to your dog’s good health as many ingredients in commercial pet food is toxic, not natural, not nutritious and certainly isn’t raw.

Try your dog on raw meat and bones for a month and you’ll see a big smile on his face!

Couple that with his drastically reduced health bills, and you’ll be the next one grinning.

Warning: in older dogs there can be an initial clearing period. This is natural and normal, but can look alarming if you don’t know what’s happening.
