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