Dear Field Dog Enthusiasts,
Bred for their ability to hunt in cold weather, Field dogs have specific temperaments, energy, and bone growth requirements that should receive special nutritional attention. Generally, this group of dogs tend to burn calories at a much higher rate than most other breeds and because they are often exposed to natural elements, their skin and hair coat are subject to higher degrees of stress. In their “natural” state, Field Dogs were fed a portion of the game they helped hunt, therefore high quality sources of meat protein is especially important.
The Best Breed Field Dog Diet, like all Best Breed diets, is a meat-based formula that contains only the highest-quality chicken protein to provide ample energy and promote healthy bone and muscle development. In addition, the Field Dog Diet contains a unique combination of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, chelated Zinc and Copper, Vitamins A & B, and Biotin to help protect your dog’s skin and hair coat.
Like all of Best Breed’s diets, the Field Dog Diet was developed with the “common sense” idea that a healthy dog begins with a truly super premium food, made with only the highest-quality ingredients. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions regarding Best Breed’s Field Dog Diet.

It is important to remember that your dog’s nutritional needs are unique and will vary with his environment, age and activity level. We recommend feeding to condition, this means using the following guide as a starting point, monitoring his weight and adjusting amounts accordingly. Feeding at least twice a day is optimal. Make sure fresh, clean water is available always.
