Fresh Food for Brussels Griffons

With their Wookie-like appearance, and faces often described as human-like, Brussels griffons are people magnets, and they love people right back—they tend to stick close to their owners and require a lot of attention. With roots that trace back to 1800s Belgium, where they were rat-hunting dogs, these pint-sized pooches stand about 8 inches high and weigh between 8 to 10 pounds. Some Brussels have wiry coats and long beards, while others have short, smooth coats. They aim to please their special person, which means they take well to training (though house-training may require some extra patience). And training is a must for this active, intelligent dog. Small and mighty, these dogs have an adorably confident trot.

Why fresh is best for your Brussels Griffons

meat and veggie

Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Brussels Griffons’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 

Brussels griffons 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 Brussels griffon.

Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)

For dogs like Brussels griffons, 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.

Promote better digestion (and poops)

A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Brussels griffon’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 Brussels griffons 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.

What customers are saying about fresh dog food

  • Obi
    “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.”
