Fresh Food for German Pinschers

The OG breed from which schnauzers and other pinschers descended, the German pinscher personifies its native land’s design sensibility: sleek, no-nonsense, and functional. Smaller than a Doberman and larger than a min pin, the breed was established to catch rodents on the farm, and chip in with guard and herding duties. Hence the athletic build, low-maintenance coat, and up-for-anything attitude, not to mention an IQ that outpaces most other breeds. German pinschers need plenty of exercise, from playing catch to walking—actually, how about a run? As smarties, they respond well to training, but keep an eye out for mischievous behavior. German pinschers are solid family dogs, best suited to older children and being the only pooch in the house.

Why fresh is best for your German Pinschers

meat and veggie

Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your German Pinschers’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.

Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)

For dogs like German pinschers, 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 German pinscher'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 German pinschers 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 German pinscher'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.

  • 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.”

  • 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.”
