Choosing the Best High-Protein Finnish Lapphund Dog Food

In regard to weight, the Finnish Lapphund is a small to average dog generally weighing 33-53 pounds. The Finnish Lapphund is also considered a medium-tall dog in regard to height, with an average height of 18-21 inches (male), 16-19 inches (female). If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Finnish Lapphund, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Finnish Lapphund is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Herding Group' with roots originating back to Finland. The agile, friendly and alert Finnish Lapphund with a somewhat reserved demeanor, generally does particularly well on a high-protein dog food. This is thanks, in part to, its small to average size combined with its moderately active energy levels.

Like all dog breeds within the AKC’s Herding Group, the Finnish Lapphund has an instinctive ability to control the movements, or 'gather', other animals. Originally bred to protect or herd livestock, the Finnish Lapphund is a breed that used to run non-stop for most of the day. However, changes to the Finnish Lapphund in modern-day society leave the breed less active than in years past. We'd recommend the Finnish Lapphund 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 Finnish Lapphund is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Finnish Lapphund 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 Finnish Lapphund. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Finnish Lapphund. 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 Finnish Lapphund is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a moderately active Finnish Lapphund.
