Nutrition and Your Dog's Behavior - Part 2 of 3

Hyper, unfocused and out of control dogs often eat foods with high levels of cereal compounds such as: wheat, corn and?corn meal. Aggressive dogs eat foods contain higher levels of incomplete protein which produce?excessive amounts of?energy.? These proteins are often incomplete chains, not offering proper building and repair or may be difficult to digest. Shy or stressed dogs do not digest their foods well at all and can suffer from intestinal complications such as diarrhea.? Their coats are often dry, brittle and shed heavily.

One way to test the foods you are feeding is to soak the food in water for about 30 minutes. If it swells in size and becomes mushy, it is primarily cereal. Are your dog's stool soft and loose or is the dog gassy?? If so, they are not digesting the food properly.
