Breed-Specific Raw Pet Food Diets for Dogs

Throughout their years of domestication, dogs have been bred to do specific jobs. These jobs have had an effect on energy level and behaviour of each breed. When determining what’s best for each breed, we can examine their ‘occupations’ to make the right decisions. There are seven groups recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club. Below each group and their nutritional requirements are discussed.

A NOTE ON BODY SCORE

In 1993, after DNA testing Canis lupus (the wolf) and Canis familiarus (the dog), the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and the American Society of Mammologists re-named the dog as a subspecies of the wolf: Canis lupus familiarus.

The most commonly asked question is: “Why should I feed raw? What’s the difference?”

Genetically, the closest living relative to domestic cats is the African Wild Cat (felis sylvesris lybica). The Lybica group, which includes the domestic cat, ranges throughout Africa and the Middle East except for the rainforests of western Africa. This wild cat inhabits deserts, woods, plains and mountains. It has evolved in a desert climate and this is evident in behaviors of wild and domestic sub-species (e.g. their love of heat and sun exposure and their preference for burying feces in sand). This species (except for certain domestic breeds) does not do well in fog, rain and snow, another indication that their original environment was a desert climate.
