Fresh Food for Miniature Pinschers

Small but mighty: the miniature pinscher is known as the “King of Toys” for a reason. Despite the similar looks, min pins are not miniature doberman pinschers but instead are their own breed, with a distinctive personality and a signature high kick (or Hackney gait) that gives them the appearance of trotting wherever they go. 

This diminutive dog is full of fire, intelligence, and joy—a personality that makes them beloved by their people. Their willful nature and energy, however, mean they need consistent, lifelong training and lots of mental stimulation in order to thrive.

A diet of fresh dog food for your min pin is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and plenty of curiosity-satiating activity.

Why fresh is best for your Miniature Pinschers

meat and veggie

Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Miniature 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.

Know what’s in the bowl

For miniature 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.

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 miniature pinscher 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 miniature pinscher.

Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)

For dogs like miniature 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.

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.”
    — Atticus’ mom
