Why Breeds, Like the Irish Terrier in the AKC Terrier Group May Need a High-Protein Dog Food
Terriers are bred to hunt. They are bred to kill and often times eat: rats, mice, squirrels and other vermin. Genetically, the Irish Terrier, part of the AKC's Terrier Group, are pre-disposed to a high-protein diet. Combine this fact with the reality that most terriers (including the Irish Terrier) today struggle with weight gain due to lack of exercise, and you'll see why we recommend a high-protein dog food that's correctly proportioned for your Irish Terrier. Originally from Ireland, the Irish Terrier can make the best of it's 13 to 15 years on a high-protein dog food that's full of the nutrients the Irish Terrier needs but without the empty calories that could lead to weight gain.

Why A Moderately Active Irish Terrier May Need a High-Protein Dog Food
The Irish Terrier is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Irish Terrier 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 Irish Terrier. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Irish Terrier. 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 Irish Terrier is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a moderately active Irish Terrier.
