How Your Dog's Diet Affects Outputs

You've heard of a hang-dog expression and yet when you imagine a sorry looking, sad doggy you know that's just not the kind you'd like owning, so why wait till you look at your own dog and go 'aww' for the way he does little by way of wagging his tail, lack of lively barking or dead-beat walking to realize a change of diet is needed for the desirable doggy output?

Yes, we are talking about inputs (what you put into the dog's mouth) being directly responsible for the outputs (what he gives out); of course, there are other environmental and biological factors at work too for a dog's health to get out of control, such as a recent illness, jangled nerves or perhaps a change of weather. However, the dog's diet is of primary importance in determining his output on a regular basis and this is what you as a loving pet owner need to educate yourself about – so your long-life companion stays that way and has a healthy one too (life).

Hygiene is a big part of your dog's health and while you may not quite take to the idea of forever cleaning dog-poop, you know that for your doggy to remain clean and health, it is important you keep the surroundings clean and for the after-meal mess to be easy to deal with, the diet better be balance (read fiber-rich for less loose bowels, but not overly so, to avoid constipation).
