I think that
there are as many ways to feed a dog that work as there are dogs. Danes are
pretty special though and need to be on a correct regime of protein in order to
grow properly. I have fed many different foods, both kibble , raw and a
combination of both. I think that most breeders pretty much know how their dogs
grow and most owners ,especially new Dane owners , would be best served by
simply following their breeders advise. Those pretty price tags are not just for
the dog - you should also be getting a lifetime of knowledgeable support
for you and your dog.
I know what
has worked for my dogs but in no way pretend to know how other lines grow and
how they are best served with their diet.
Here are links
to research and learn from. REMEMBER to always talk it over with your breeder
before changing your dogs diet!
