Here are 2 more reasons to use fat instead of carbs: One gram of fat supplies 2.4 times the energy of one gram of protein or carbohydrates. Fat also serves as a metabolic source of water, so a hard working dog is less likely to get dehydrated when fed a diet higher in fat.

The diet you describe is fine for a human bodybuilder, not a dog on a raw diet. You wont get your dog in the shape you want if you keep pushing carbs through him and limiting fat. That's why you are having trouble getting the weight off him and asking about different exercises when you should be heeding my advice on a proper raw diet.

I think I know a little bit of what I am talking about.






God I am IN LOVE with Angus !!! He is sooooooooooooooooo beautiful and one of the best conditioned dogs I have ever seen. Dawn girl whatever you do with this guy besides him being genetically awesome keep doing it! He is fantastic looking !! Love you Angus !!! That boy has chest for days ....

thanks for the heads up. I said correct me if I'm wrong. And I stand corrected. However, try not to assume.just because I asked some questions, doesn't necessarily mean I act before researching. Only carbs this boy gets is some veggies( green ones at that) I had an really overweight boy that I never considered conditioning. I'm all up for suggestions and I do know more about a humans diet than a dog. I was more along the lines trying to gain some new exercises to switch it up and not allow for muscle to get used to the same routine and reach the plateau.
That being said- good job on Angus. Quite a looker :-)

So how do you feed or what types of meat and how much?
I feed a raw diet with a base of chicken but also rotate different meats along with it (beef, turkey, lamb, etc. + bones, organs) depending on what I find at my local supermarket/walmart. I typically feed about 1.5 to 2% of my dogs weight depending on his condition and if I need to increase weight or drop it.

Thank you very much Sadie! We will keep doing our thing. I cant wait to start conditioning my new pup (Angus' son) but he's only 4.5 weeks old. At least he's got a good start, as I am weaning him onto a raw diet.

Normally when someone mentions carbs the first thing I think of is rice or some type of grain. That being said I'm glad to see that is not the case.
