Why Breeds, Like the German Shorthaired Pointer in the AKC Sporting Group May Need a High-Protein Dog Food
It's well known that setters, spaniels, pointers and retrievers are all active companions. Chosen commonly today thanks to their likeable personality more so than their ability to hunt, the AKC Grouping 'Sporting Group' is the most likely AKC group to benefit from a high-protein diet. This is due, in part, to a high-protein diet's ability to control weight gain while still providing much needed nutrients for this very active group of dog breeds. Hailing from Germany the German Shorthaired Pointer is no exception to this truth. The German Shorthaired Pointer's smart, willing to please and friendly temperament makes for a great pet but their highly active energy levels require a high-protein diet to give them enough nutrients and calories to sustain their level of energy. This is especially true if the German Shorthaired Pointer tends to get a little overweight due to lack of access to exercise thanks to a high-protein dog food's calories to nutrients efficiency.
