We offer a selection of Large Breed recipes which are suitable for both Large Breed and Giant Breed dogs:

Large breed dogs

If a dog falls between 25kg to 44kg, he or she falls within the Large Breed category. This type of dog experiences a longer growth period reaching adult weight at 15 months. Large Breed dogs usually have slower metabolism and high exercise requirements. Their diets should take into consideration the need for bone and joint health as they can be prone to joint concerns.

Giant breed dogs

If a dog weighs over 45kg, then they are classified as a Giant Breed Dog. Giant breeds go through a two- step growth phrase. The first six months see rapid growth which includes bone development and a diet that is high in energy and nutrients, as well as easy to digest. After this muscular development takes place in which special attention is needed to be given to their bone and joint health. Giant Breed dogs usually attain adult- size at 18 to 24 months.

The Kibble Size

Our Large Breed recipes contain larger kibble sizes to both help slow down the speed of eating and promote a positive elongated eating experience. The size and weight of large breed dogs can put more strain on their joints so we’ve added a joint care pack to provide nutrients that help support healthy joints.

Large muscle mass requires extra large skin to protect the large breed dogs body. As skin is the largest organ of the body – that’s a lot of skin to maintain! All our Large Breed recipes contain a lean protein source, rich in essential amino acids, low in fat and with a good source of essential nutrients such as riboflavin, potassium and selenium. These components are beneficial in promoting the growth, repair and renewal of cells which can help support muscle mass as well as helping to maintain a healthy skin and coat.
