Deer Dog: Hunting Dog Nutrition Tips

Jeremy Moore of Dog Bone offers some excellent hunting dog nutrition tips in this Deer Dogs video.

One of the first hunting dog nutrition tips deals with the bowls you use to feed your dog -- that's right. You need to pay attention to the material the bowls are made from. Plastic bowls can hold bacteria and cause your dog issues. So opt for bowls made of stainless steel or ceramic.

You should also feed your dog twice a day for peak performance. It may take a bit more effort to feed twice but it pays off in the long run. A dog is then able to maintain energy throughout the day.

When choosing a food, you get what you pay for just as with most things. Be sure to look at the ingredient list. The first few items listed in the ingredient list make up 80 to 90 percent of the content of the food.

Additives can greatly impact your dog's skin and hair -- two primary culprits for visits to the vet's office. Pay attention to the ingredients listed and know what's in the food you're feeding your dog.
