Dog Food: My Dog Eats What?


Dog Food: My Dog Eats What? by Jim Burwell

It’s amazing how some dog owners buy their dog food. If it looks good on the package, it will taste good to their dog.

Processed dog food that is poor quality and chock full of cheap carbs and sugar can plague unsuspecting dog owners with out of control dogs on a sugar high.

Diet can make a “turn-around” difference in your dog’s health and behavior.

Here’s what one client said:

“Thanks for checking up on Charlie. His new diet has been amazing. He absolutely loves SOJOS and it is completely agreeing with his digestive system. He licks his bowl clean after every feeding and wants more. He is no longer on Prilosec and we have not witnessed any vomiting.

I took him to the vet last week to weigh him and he as lost a bit over 3 pounds so we are headed in the right direction. I am sure the added weight played a role in his orthopedic issues Charlie seems to feel so much better and there is a pep to his stay. We are thrilled with the results and will keep up this diet regimen.”


Thanks for letting me share my dog training knowledge with you. Don’t be a stranger. I’d love to hear what you think.

    Ron: I apologize for that as I certainly meant to. Cool proteins are: fish, rabbit and duck. Neutral proteins are: beef and turkey. Hope this helps and thanks for bringing this to my attention. Jim

    Thanks Sarah. Wholesome food has had a huge impact on the health of our dogs, especially Sammy with his arthritis and skin issues. Thanks for commenting! Jim

    In your video you gave 3 examples of “Hot” proteins, but NO examples of “Cool” proteins. Help me out here, please.

    Great information in your video Jim. I totally agree about the food. I swapped Oscar from commercial food in 2007 and now he’s on raw and his health improved immeasurably. We need to be aware as pet parents, as you say, they can’t choose for themselves so we need to do all we can to make sure we are giving them the best we can.

    Thank you! This was incredibly helpful and so much great information. When I get back home I’m going to go look at the ingredients on my bag of dog food. I’m scared to see what I might find.

    Thanks a million
