The AKC's Foundation Stock Service is an option for purebred breeds to continue to develop while providing them with the security of a reliable and reputable way to maintain their records. While most Foundation Stock Service Breeds are approved to compete in AKC Companion Events, they are not eligible for AKC registration. So, unlike other AKC groupings like the Terrier Group or Working Group and even the Non-Sporting Group where one can gain further insight from the grouping the dog breed may be in, the AKC Foundation Stock Service gives us little insight. Thus, we must turn to other facts we know about the German Spitz to determine if a high-protein dog food is right for the German Spitz. For example, we know that a German Spitz is moderately active and has a somewhat reserved demeanor. More importantly, we know that the devoted, lively, attentive German Spitz is moderately active In regard to energy levels. Thus, the German Spitz needs proper diet and exercise to keep it closer to the 24 pounds side of their recommended 24-26 pounds weight.

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