When shopping for pet food, the label “Working Dog” may be present on products across our store leaving customers puzzled to what it actually means and what dogs it is suitable for.
From food to treats, we have everything a working dog needs to stay healthy, wholesome and full of nutritional hearty goodness; but for dogs that aren’t considered working – owners may stray from purchasing products with this specific labelling.
Here at Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we love to take the stress out of shopping so to take confusion out of label reading, here’s what our products mean when they say working dog and what products are pawfect for dogs who are working each day.
What does Working Dog mean?
Just like our furry friends at home, Working Dogs are specific breeds that have been specifically reared to complete certain tasks or jobs outside the home. With breeds such as Border Collies, Labradors and Spaniels used in farms and estates to herd animals; assist those with disabilities and used for hunting, working dogs have been around the UK and world for centuries.
When it comes to Working Dog food, this specific type of food is designed to support the nutrition and health of dogs that are more active than others. Just like us humans, people with more active lifestyles tend to consume more calories and protein enriched diets, our working dogs require the same level of nutritional support so businesses have targeted this select group of dogs when designing food and treats.
As a result of their active lifestyle, some breeds may require between 1.5 to 2.5 times the amounts of food as a regular domesticated dog. For some breeds like Siberian Huskies working in extreme temperatures, this food level may increase even more. In the UK, more and more companies are opting to create Working Dog Food options to highlight the benefits of a protein rich diet for our pets.
