I have had many good dogs in my life. I am a breeder and trainer, but I rarely keep an animal for a pet. I much more enjoy providing families with hardy, healthy pets. The other reason is that I cannot stand to have my heart broken when they come to the end of their short lives. Our breeding program keeps our breeding dogs in the hands of pet owners who I have given dogs, but I retain certain breeding rights. I began to run the business in this fashion because the dogs are always attended to unlike puppy mill breeding programs and even in some respectable programs. I feel that even in these respectable programs, there are only so many people that are able to give specialized attention to their animals, and I think that this specialized attention is a large part of the dog’s happiness. For an animal who in its natural state would roam large areas in search of adventure and food like Beneful, I also feel that boredom is kind of torture for dogs.
This torturous boredom is a common problem for dogs and their owners, and this problem contributes greatly to the problem of abandoned and shelter dogs. However, my best genetics are my pets, and I understand that my dogs need food and adventure in order to truly be happy. This mimics their normal behavior and prevents any acting out or issues when I leave them alone. They are fed twice a day, but before they are fed, we take them out for exercise. This is not a mere stretch of the legs. They go on long walks and get to explore their environment thoroughly. I bring them back in and feed them. At this point, I leave for work. They utilize this time to conserve and replenish their energy. I watch them via a remote camera app, and they mostly sleep during the period that I am out much like they would as wolves in the wild.
My dogs get active again around the time that I get home. I then take them out again to release some of their boundless energy, and to tire them before they eat. I feed at this point and allow them into the yard for the night. I only bring them inside for bad weather. They have access to their doggy door, but they would much rather be out all night. With animals that are this active, I have to feed them very nutritious food. For this, I choose Purina’s Beneful on walmart. Beneful is a comprehensive brand of wet and dry foods with a high protein content. It completely satiates my dogs and keeps them so beautiful that my dogs’ appearance does much of the selling needed to make our breeding program successful. They are great in all aspects including genetics and health, but it is ironic that after those many decades of bettering the breed, Beneful is ultimately responsible for my success.
