Recommended Dog Food

Listed are what I feel are the best dog foods for your Llewellin Setter.

I believe with every ounce of me that you should feed the very best you possibly can. What you put into your dog starting as a puppy will absolutely make the difference in his health for the rest of his life—which, I also feel will be extended by several years and be disease-free. Spending a little extra in the quality of food you feed your dog will save you thousands in vet bills later, extend your dog’s life, and enhance the quality.

In order of best choices to worst:

  • A complete, balanced home-prepared Raw diet.
  • Commercially prepared frozen complete Raw diet
  • Commercially prepared dehydrated/freeze-dried complete diet
  • Human-grade canned food with the addition of fresh foods.
  • Super-premium kibble with the addition of fresh foods

I believe all foods should be:

  • Organic if possible
  • Free-range (pastured) meat
  • Human-grade
  • Sourced within the U.S. or Canada, or New Zealand
  • No food you feed your dog should include corn, wheat, soy, or oats.
  • No food should list unnamed meat sources (e.g., “meat meal”, “meat by-products”). The first 6 ingredients listed on the dog food are the most important.

Switch food brands/manufacturers and protein sources often. This is the best way to be certain your dog is receiving a well-balanced diet.

I now feel quality of ingredients and the freshest possible ingredients is most important and a bag of processed dry dog food is not it any of these things.
