Choosing the Best High-Protein Afghan Hound Dog Food

In regard to weight, the Afghan Hound is a large dog generally weighing 50-60 pounds. The Afghan Hound is also considered a tall dog in regard to height, with an average height of 25-27 inches. If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Afghan Hound, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Afghan Hound is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Hound Group' with roots originating back to Afghanistan. The independent and sweet Afghan Hound with an aloof or wary demeanor, generally does particularly well on a high-protein dog food. This is thanks, in part to, its large size combined with its usually high energy levels.

The Afghan Hound has, like most other hounds, the genetic traits best used for hunting. Whether it's their acute sense of smell to follow a potential prey's trail or their boundless amounts of energy to run them down, a dog within the American Kennel Club's Hound Group would be well suited for a high-protein dog food. Why? Because their bodies need the protein to help rebuild their naturally muscular body while still providing them enough energy. Further, since the Afghan Hound isn't used as much today as a hunter versus a pet, weight control is more easily achieved on a high-protein diet.

The Afghan Hound is considered an energetic dog and thus your Afghan Hound could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of an energetic Afghan Hound. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by an energetic dog like the Afghan Hound. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the Afghan Hound is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for an energetic Afghan Hound.


The Afghan Hound is a large, tall dog weighing in at over 50 pounds. Dogs of this size could benefit from a well-rounded diet that have all the necessary nutrients for their large frame.
