The English Toy Spaniel is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Toy Group' with roots originating back to England.

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 Havanese and of course the English Toy Spaniel. 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 English Toy Spaniel, can benefit from a high-protein diet. For example, take the English Toy Spaniel small frame of 9-10 inches and weight of only 8-14 pounds. If put on a diet that's full of fillers versus lean proteins, the English Toy Spaniel could easily become obese or, due to lack of nutrient dense high-protein, become a shadow of their typically gentle, intelligent, playful self!

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