Choosing the Best High-Protein Collie Dog Food
In regard to weight, the Collie is a large dog generally weighing 60-75 pounds (male), 50-65 pounds (female). The Collie is also considered a tall dog in regard to height, with an average height of 24-26 inches (male), 22-24 inches (female). If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Collie, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Collie is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Herding Group' with roots originating back to Scotland. The proud, devoted and graceful Collie with a friendly 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.
Why Breeds, Like the Collie in the AKC Herding Group May Need a High-Protein Dog Food
Like all dog breeds within the AKC’s Herding Group, the Collie has an instinctive ability to control the movements, or 'gather', other animals. Originally bred to protect or herd livestock, the Collie is a breed that used to run non-stop for most of the day. However, changes to the Collie in modern-day society leave the breed less active than in years past. We'd recommend the Collie a high-protein dog food to help the dog manage their weight and still provide them plenty of protein for their naturally active lifestyle.

Why A Moderately Active Collie May Need a High-Protein Dog Food
The Collie is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Collie 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 Collie. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Collie. 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 Collie is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a moderately active Collie.
Does a Large Collie Benefit From a High-Protein Dog Food?
The Collie is a large, tall dog weighing in at over 60 pounds. Dogs of this size could benefit from a well-rounded diet that have all the necessary nutrients for their large frame.
