What are the Benefits of Breed Specific Dog Food?

With so many dog breeds of all shapes and sizes, it can be a challenge to find a one-size-fits-all dog food. This is why a number of market leading brands have taken a step towards developing ranges of breed specific dog food that better meet the individual requirements of specific breeds by taking into account jaw size, bite pattern, as well as considering conditions some breeds are more prone to such as poor mobility and obesity. 


Which Dogs Need Breed Specific Dog Food? 

While breed specific food may not be necessary for all dogs (particularly those of mixed or unknown breeds), there are some that can benefit from having a specialised diet based on their breed, which we have detailed below. 


German Shepherds

As with other large and extra-large dog breeds, German Shepherds are considered senior dogs much sooner than some smaller breeds. As such, they need more nutrients to help support their joints and digestion sooner to help keep them healthy and active. Many German Shepherd specific dog foods, such as the Eukanuba Breed Specific German Shepherd food, contains glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate for healthy joints and mobility as well as higher levels of prebiotics for optimal gut health and digestion. 



Bulldogs can encounter a number of issues as they age, including obesity and difficulties with mobility. Foods such as the Royal Canin Bulldog Adult Breed Health Nutrition Dog food as specifically formulated to help your dog ensure an optimum body weight and lean muscle mass, as well as a tailor-made kibble shape which encourages your bulldog to properly chew their food. 



Labradors are known for their loyal, playful nature, as well as their appetite. Labrador specific diets like the Eukanuba Breed Specific Labrador Retriever food is designed to ensure your dog maintains an optimum body weight and lean muscle mass, as well as offering extra support for their joints.



As one of the smallest breeds of dogs available, Chihuahuas can find it difficult to chew some of the more generic dog foods. By choosing a food specific for Chihuahuas such as the Royal Canin Chihuahua Adult Breed Health Nutrition Dog Food, you can ensure your dog gets all the necessary nutrients while also taking into account their miniature jaws. This food is also highly palatable for pickier eaters and has omega-3 EPA and DHA and biotin support skin and coat health.
