I am looking at getting a new puppy, and have been considering Canaans, Wolf Hybrids, King Shepherds, Malamutes and Norwegian Elkhounds. Based on size and temprament common in Elkhounds,and their role as a hunting dog, at this point it is my favorite choice. I have done hours of research trying to find an effective diet for this dog, but all the information I can gather is "a strict diet with natural ingredients". This doesn't help me at all. Can anyone with experience in this matter give me an idea on which 'natural ingredients' I should use, and supplements, if any? I understand Elkhounds can become obese if diet and exercise aren't monitored but I live a very active outdoors lifestyle, I just need a boost on what to feed a puppy, adolescent and adult.
