Choosing the Best High-Protein Skye Terrier Dog Food

In regard to weight, the Skye Terrier is an average dog generally weighing 35-45 pounds (male), slightly lighter (female). The Skye Terrier is also considered a small dog in regard to height, with an average height of 10 inches (male), 9. 5 inches (female). If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Skye Terrier, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Skye Terrier is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Terrier Group' with roots originating back to Scotland. The canny, courageous and good-tempered Skye Terrier with a somewhat reserved demeanor, generally does particularly well on a high-protein dog food. This is thanks, in part to, its average size combined with its moderately active energy levels.

Terriers are bred to hunt. They are bred to kill and often times eat: rats, mice, squirrels and other vermin. Genetically, the Skye Terrier, part of the AKC's Terrier Group, are pre-disposed to a high-protein diet. Combine this fact with the reality that most terriers (including the Skye Terrier) today struggle with weight gain due to lack of exercise, and you'll see why we recommend a high-protein dog food that's correctly proportioned for your Skye Terrier. Originally from Scotland, the Skye Terrier can make the best of it's 12 to 14 years on a high-protein dog food that's full of the nutrients the Skye Terrier needs but without the empty calories that could lead to weight gain.

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