A new study suggests it might not be necessary to follow all of the steps.
Researchers from the University of Bristol’s Veterinary Education and Research Unit found that the vast majority of dogs had a “high” or “very high” satisfaction rating with the quality of their dog food.
It comes after several recent studies have found that dogs are highly satisfied with their dog’s diet.
Some studies have also suggested that dogs’ satisfaction levels can vary significantly based on breed, environment, and lifestyle.
The results, published in the journal Animal Cognition, are based on research from more than 3,500 dogs.
“The results show that dogs respond positively to different food quality characteristics, and that these differences can be attributed to differences in the underlying food science underlying these ratings,” lead author Professor Steve Beasley, said in a statement.
He said that the study was the first to examine whether the differences in food quality could affect dog satisfaction.
“We found that dog food quality was highly correlated with satisfaction ratings across the breed, with only the most highly satisfied dogs displaying positive differences in ratings of their food quality,” the researchers said.
“These differences in dog food satisfaction were also associated with differences in eating behaviours and levels of social interactions with other dogs, which suggests that dogs may be highly motivated to improve their diet.”‘
Diet is very important’For those that want to learn more about food and nutrition, the researchers suggest a number of simple tips that can help you make the most of your dog’s food.
They recommend that you:Avoid artificial ingredients in your dietAvoid high-sugar, high-calorie foodAvoid low-sodium, high-, or high-fat foodAvoid high or low-fat meatAvoid high cholesterol foodsAvoid fat from animal sources.
The researchers also suggested adopting a vegetarian diet, as these foods are generally high in protein and other healthy nutrients.
“In contrast to other types of dog foods, vegetarian dog foods are relatively low in sodium and are usually rich in healthy fats,” the study found.
