Fresh Food for American Eskimo Dogs
The American Eskimo dog actually originated in Germany. Once in America, these perky pups became circus performers in the late 19th century. Ranging from 9 to 30 pounds, American Eskimo Dogs come in toy, miniature and standard sizes, and all have thick, white coats that need to be brushed a few times a week. Good with kids and other dogs, American Eskimo dogs are devoted to their people and take very well to training. They need regular exercise as well as mental stimulation through the use of games and toys—and lots of fun things to chew. Very vocal, these dogs are known to talk to their owners.
A diet of fresh food for your American Eskimo Dog is the best way to support their health and happiness — along with plenty of exercise, vet care, and game play for mental stimulation.
What’s the best dog food for American Eskimo dogs?
A diet of fresh dog food for your American Eskimo dog contributes to a healthy, active life, and could help stave off some of the ailments common to this breed.
Why fresh is best for your American Eskimo Dogs
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your American Eskimo Dogs’s health. Recipes from The Farmer’s Dog are made with fresh, human-grade ingredients, steamed to retain nutrients, and pre-portioned to help maintain weight.Feed Fresh Today
American Eskimo dogs are prone to joint issues. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your American Eskimo dog.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your American Eskimo dog's health. It supports optimal muscle growth and maintenance and a strong heart. Another hallmark of a digestible diet is what we call “high quality poops.” Research shows that a digestible, bioavailable diet affects the quality and quantity of your dog’s poop—making it less voluminous, and less stinky, than their poop on a kibble diet!
Know what’s in the bowl
For American Eskimo dogs with dry and itchy skin, sensitive stomachs, or other signs of food allergies and sensitivities, it’s important to know exactly what you’re feeding—something that can be impossible with kibble, which often contains ingredients not listed on the bag. Allergies and intolerances to food are all too common and many dog owners notice symptoms clear up when they switch to fresh food.
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your American Eskimo dog's odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan, tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.
