Choosing the Best High-Protein Briard Dog Food

In regard to weight, the Briard is a large dog generally weighing 55-100 pounds. The Briard is also considered a tall dog in regard to height, with an average height of 23-27 inches (male), 22-25. 5 inches (female). If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Briard, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Briard is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Herding Group' with roots originating back to France. The faithful, confident and smart Briard with a somewhat reserved demeanor, generally does particularly well on a high-protein dog food. This is thanks, in part to, its large size combined with its moderately active energy levels.

Like all dog breeds within the AKC’s Herding Group, the Briard has an instinctive ability to control the movements, or 'gather', other animals. Originally bred to protect or herd livestock, the Briard is a breed that used to run non-stop for most of the day. However, changes to the Briard in modern-day society leave the breed less active than in years past. We'd recommend the Briard a high-protein dog food to help the dog manage their weight and still provide them plenty of protein for their naturally active lifestyle.

The Briard is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Briard 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 a moderately active Briard. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Briard. 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 Briard is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a moderately active Briard.


The Briard is a large, tall dog weighing in at over 55 pounds. Dogs of this size could benefit from a well-rounded diet that have all the necessary nutrients for their large frame.
