It's well known that setters, spaniels, pointers and retrievers are all active companions. Chosen commonly today thanks to their likeable personality more so than their ability to hunt, the AKC Grouping 'Sporting Group' is the most likely AKC group to benefit from a high-protein diet. This is due, in part, to a high-protein diet's ability to control weight gain while still providing much needed nutrients for this very active group of dog breeds. Hailing from Netherlands the Nederlandse Kooikerhondje is no exception to this truth. The Nederlandse Kooikerhondje's alert, quick and friendly temperament makes for a great pet but their moderately active energy levels require a high-protein diet to give them enough nutrients and calories to sustain their level of energy. This is especially true if the Nederlandse Kooikerhondje tends to get a little overweight due to lack of access to exercise thanks to a high-protein dog food's calories to nutrients efficiency.

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