Nutrition and Your Dog's Behavior - Part 1 of 3

Proper nutrition is the fundamental basis for every aspect of your dog's life.

It affects their health and longevity by offering an essential balance of proteins, fats, complex carbohydrates and the trace nutrients and minerals their bodies need for growth, repair and the mantainance of a sound immunne system. Nutrition is a complex and integral part of your dog's ability to think clearly, lower stress levels and produce a calmer behavior. Thinking takes a lot of energy.? Dogs invoved in a training program, expend tremendous amounts of mental energy focusing on the tasks presented to them.? If your dog starts with minimal nutrition, they become lethargic, edgy or hyper active when asked to perform the simplest of tasks.? They cannot focus and loss concentration after a short period of time or become confused.? If the dog is continually asked to do something they cannot comprehend, confusion can lead to an aggressive form of acting out.

In training dogs, the first thing I look at is the dog's diet!? I work from the inside out.? Training becomes ineffective if the underlying caiuse for the behaviors are not changed.
