I have two German Shepherds from a rescue organization that LOVE your large breed chow! The younger dog was malnourished when we brought her home, and with your large breed chow has put on 10 lbs. and her coat now looks terrific.

I just started feeding NutriSource grain free about 6 weeks ago to my 2 spoiled German Shepherds. I love the results I am getting. My lean guy is starting to flesh out and my boy from Czech lines is holding a good weight and not getting fat. I have noticed more energy, smaller waste, and less doggie breath.

It’s a simple-enough question on the surface, but it turns out a dog’s sight is quite complex and different from that of humans. Understanding those differences can help us better understand why our canine companions do the quirky things they do.

Does your dog love you? Here’s how you can tell

Does your dog love you? Here’s how you can tell

We all express love, affection and admiration. We understand these expressions from person to person. But the love language between you and your dog may be a bit different. We show our pups we love them in many ways: we pet them, give them treats, rub their bellies and ask them “Who’s a good boy?” in a high-pitched voice. However, it’s hard to speak the same language when you’re two separate species, which can make it a little harder to get your message across.
