The Irish Wolfhound has, like most other hounds, the genetic traits best used for hunting. Whether it's their acute sense of smell to follow a potential prey's trail or their boundless amounts of energy to run them down, a dog within the American Kennel Club's Hound Group would be well suited for a high-protein dog food. Why? Because their bodies need the protein to help rebuild their naturally muscular body while still providing them enough energy. Further, since the Irish Wolfhound isn't used as much today as a hunter versus a pet, weight control is more easily achieved on a high-protein diet.

The Irish Wolfhound is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Irish Wolfhound 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 Wolfhound. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Irish Wolfhound. 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 Wolfhound 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 Wolfhound.


The Irish Wolfhound is a massive, tall dog weighing in at over 120 pounds. Dogs of this size could benefit from a well-rounded diet that have all the necessary nutrients for their massive frame.
