Like all dog breeds within the AKC’s Herding Group, the Swedish Vallhund has an instinctive ability to control the movements, or 'gather', other animals. Originally bred to protect or herd livestock, the Swedish Vallhund is a breed that used to run non-stop for most of the day. However, changes to the Swedish Vallhund in modern-day society leave the breed less active than in years past. We'd recommend the Swedish Vallhund 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 Swedish Vallhund is considered a highly active dog and thus your Swedish Vallhund 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 highly active Swedish Vallhund. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a highly active dog like the Swedish Vallhund. 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 Swedish Vallhund is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a highly active Swedish Vallhund.
