A Basset Hound is a medium-sized dog that requires a special type of nutrition due to its odd body shape. They are very loving dogs that need a lot of love and affection. They are short dogs who are low to the ground but have a tendency to become obese due to their slow moving nature. They are hunting dogs so make sure you remember that when you are walking them they like to sniff everything out.

Since Basset Hounds do tend to become obese quicker than other dogs it is important to know what to feed them. They do eat a lot of food so keep that in mind. Many Basset owners decide to go the raw diet route and eliminate dog food all together. If you are going to choose to feed your Basset Hound dog food you should go with something All-Natural such as a Purina product.

On the other side of the spectrum there is the Great Dane. They are a very large dog with very long legs and a very big appetite. They are typically 30-32 inches tall and require a whole lot of exercise and good nutrition. As puppies, Great Danes need to start out on a low protein diet. Higher protein tends to make a dog grow much faster, which a Great Dane simply does not need since they grow to be large dogs without the help of protein. Low protein will also help Great Danes manage their weight and remain active in their daily lives. Great Danes typically like chicken over any other type of meat.

Feeding the dogs the right foods and taking good care of them are the two most important things you can do for your dog. On top of feeding him healthy food you must also make sure he gets plenty of exercise and of course, love and affection. All dogs are different so it is important to do your research and talk to your vet before making any major changes to your dog’s diet. They are depending on you to do what is best for them.
