Choosing the Best High-Protein Pekingese Dog Food

In regard to weight, the Pekingese is a small dog generally weighing up to 14 pounds. The Pekingese is also considered a very small dog in regard to height, with an average height of 6-9 inches. If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Pekingese, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Pekingese is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Toy Group' with roots originating back to China. The regal in manner, affectionate and loyal Pekingese with a somewhat reserved demeanor, generally does particularly well on a high-protein dog food. This is thanks, in part to, its small size combined with its typically calm energy levels.

The perfect dog for the millions of people that live in the city, the American Kennel Club's 'Toy Group' make up breeds like the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the Pomeranian and of course the Pekingese. But does a dog of such small size truly need a high-protein dog food? Yes, we believe small dogs like those in the AKC's Toy group, including the Pekingese, can benefit from a high-protein diet. For example, take the Pekingese small frame of 6-9 inches and weight of only up to 14 pounds. If put on a diet that's full of fillers versus lean proteins, the Pekingese could easily become obese or, due to lack of nutrient dense high-protein, become a shadow of their typically affectionate, regal in manner, loyal self!
