Fresh Food for Lakeland Terriers
Packing a lot of mischief into a relatively small package, Lakeland terriers are clever little dogs who were bred to hunt foxes. They will pursue prey with uncommon tenacity, digging as far as it takes to reach their targets, and are liable to treat their objectives around your home and backyard with the same level of determination. For example, one Lakeland terrier in England became famous for sniffing out and keeping 1,000 lost and discarded balls. Why? Who knows! In any event, dedication to training and exercise are a must. While they require a lot of exercise and mental enrichment, these dogs are quite robust on average, with no known breed-specific health issues.
What’s the best dog food for Lakeland terriers?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Lakeland terrier is the best way to support their health and happiness — along with regular vet care, a loving family and plenty of opportunities to run.
Why fresh is best for your Lakeland Terriers
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Lakeland Terriers’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
Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)
For dogs like Lakeland terriers, 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.
Lakeland terriers 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 Lakeland terrier.
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Lakeland terrier’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.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Lakeland terrier’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!
