With over twenty different breeds of dogs within the AKC's Non-Sporting Group ranging from the Tibetan Spaniel to the Tibetan Terrier to the Xoloitzcuintli and including (of course) the Shiba Inu; this AKC grouping has a wide variety of dogs In regard to temperament, weight, height and even background. But one thing the various dogs in this group do share is their popularity amongst humans as housedogs and even, at times, watchdogs. So, what's that mean for their diet, or more specifically for the diet of the Shiba Inu? Well, in order to keep a Shiba Inu within a heathy weight range of 23 pounds (male), 17 pounds (female) their owner will need to be diligent about what type and how much dog food they're giving the active Shiba Inu.

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