Fresh Food for Bouvier des Flandres

A capable farmhand, the bouvier des Flandres was bred in Belgium to keep watch and herd livestock. Today, they’ve still got heft, strength, and rural smarts to spare. Bouviers are also distinguished by a shaggily handsome weatherproof coat, which benefits from regular brushing. But even beyond the country, bouviers remain model employees, whether as service dogs or in law enforcement. Provided they keep busy, the dogs excel as family companions and enjoy interacting with children. Bouviers are enthusiastic fitness partners, excited to join their human on a jog or outdoor romp. Kind and decent to a fault, the breed requires training and is quick to catch on.

Why fresh is best for your Bouvier des Flandres

meat and veggie

Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Bouvier des Flandres’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.

Protect joints 

Bouvier des Flandres 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 bouvier des Flandres.

Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)

For dogs like bouvier des Flandres, who may be prone to dental disease, don’t look to a dried pellet to clean teeth. Kibble is an ultra-processed food—it sticks to teeth, contributing to plaque, and it can contain substances that actually fuel inflammation in the tissues of the body, including the mouth. Eating for dental health means eating for overall health. A fresh, whole-food diet promotes a healthier immune system, which helps ward off dental infections—and it doesn’t stick to teeth.

Know what’s in the bowl

For bouvier des Flandres 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.

Provide nutrients that can reduce the odds of cancer

There’s no sure way to eliminate the risk of cancer, but there are things you can do to give your bouvier des Flandres the best chance at more healthy years: Keep them lean, avoid heavily processed foods that may contain preservatives and carcinogens, and feed them a fresh diet that can help reduce inflammation. Dietary antioxidants—like those found in fresh vegetables— are proven to help decrease the risk of cancer. Processed kibble and canned food just can't supply fresh, whole vegetables like a fresh diet can for your bouvier des Flandres.

What customers are saying about fresh dog food

    “Obi had terrible allergies. We tried everything. After switching to The Farmer’s Dog he doesn’t have one single hot spot, and he doesn’t lick his paws chronically anymore. He also has a bunch of energy.”
    — Obi’s mom
  • Tyene
    “As soon as we brought The Farmer’s Dog home, her skin was better, she was more active (and high quality poops!). If I can invest in her health and be proactive I think it’s worth it.”
    — Tyene’s dad
  • Atticus
    “Atticus had bad gas and diarrhea. I just thought it was part of having a big dog. With The Farmer’s Dog, it was a complete 180. I should have known that what you put in your body makes a huge difference.”
