Like all dog breeds within the AKC’s Herding Group, the Miniature American Shepherd has an instinctive ability to control the movements, or 'gather', other animals. Originally bred to protect or herd livestock, the Miniature American Shepherd is a breed that used to run non-stop for most of the day. However, changes to the Miniature American Shepherd in modern-day society leave the breed less active than in years past. We'd recommend the Miniature American Shepherd a high-protein dog food to help the dog manage their weight and still provide them plenty of protein for their naturally active lifestyle.

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