Choosing the Best High-Protein Chinese Crested Dog Food

In regard to weight, the Chinese Crested is a very small dog generally weighing 8-12 pounds. The Chinese Crested is also considered a small dog in regard to height, with an average height of 11-13 inches. If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Chinese Crested, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Chinese Crested is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Toy Group' with roots originating back to China. The lively, affectionate and alert Chinese Crested with a friendly demeanor, generally does particularly well on a high-protein dog food. This is thanks, in part to, its very small size combined with its moderately active energy levels.

The perfect dog for the millions of people that live in the city, the American Kennel Club's 'Toy Group' make up breeds like the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the English Toy Spaniel and of course the Chinese Crested. But does a dog of such small size truly need a high-protein dog food? Yes, we believe small dogs like those in the AKC's Toy group, including the Chinese Crested, can benefit from a high-protein diet. For example, take the Chinese Crested small frame of 11-13 inches and weight of only 8-12 pounds. If put on a diet that's full of fillers versus lean proteins, the Chinese Crested could easily become obese or, due to lack of nutrient dense high-protein, become a shadow of their typically affectionate, lively, alert self!

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


The Chinese Crested is a very small, small dog weighing in at over 8 pounds. Dogs of this size could benefit from a well-rounded diet that have all the necessary nutrients for their very small frame.
