Seun:

Counter-intuitively, a high protein diet is actually not good for weight gain. Many owners of fat dogs have said that their dogs lost weight after they switched to a raw diet. When I tried to fatten my dog with a raw diet, it didn't work. Once he ate a certain amount, he would start rejecting food. Which is embarrassing (and very funny, really) when the food in question is a juicy piece of Orobo chicken lap. Raw food is not fattening.

The secret to weight gain is the same for cows, chickens, human beings, and dogs: starchy food. It's so easy to digest and full of calories. Our family dogs are the fattest and yet most hyper-active dogs I have ever seen. Their staple food is rice and shawa fish, cooked and mixed up. I've also read that feeding a lot of puppy food to an adult dog can lead to weight gain, because puppy food is very rich, so you're on the right track.
i stand to be corrected but i think excess protein is stored in the body as fats, inshort, any form of calories in excess is stored as fat in the body.

The key to raw feeding is what blasiangurl uses, the weight factor. she uses a particular qty/kg as regards to the dogs body weight.

Nice write up I must say. I love dogs a lot, once owned two samoeyed and a rott. The experience I had with the rot wasn't too cool as it was lazy and sluggish. It's only active when it comes to food and after that it hibernates, ended up giving it out. Also gave out my samo when my job became hectic (2years ago). Out of the dogs, I really really miss Ella (samo), she was just soooooo sensitive, intelligent and smart and the only person she disliked was my girlfriend. Anyway that's the past.
Used to like German Shepherd but don't know why I had a change of mind maybe cus we once had it wen I was still a teenager. Looking forward to having a Dobberman as I heard they are also very intelligent and yes also gonna have a samo.

Madam, I going to follow this thread cus it is quite insightful

When I initially saw this post, I wanted to skip but got pushed by something to read, and I have to say I'm happy I did. The writing is so well constructed and each detail about shadow easy to comprehend. I've definitely learnt something from this dairy and I hope to learn more because I'll keep on reading. I plan on being a proud dog owner like you someday, and I pray I get a dog as beautiful asas shadow. More power to your elbow

Thank you. I'm really glad to see there are people who are benefiting from this post. I had wanted to do it for a while but never got round to it.

The Protein Diet

Everyone has what works for them. I know some people will say a diet of protein and carbs is what's best for dogs. That's what my vet told me as well. But I did my own independent research and concluded that a high protein diet is better.(this is just my opinion) From what I know about high protein diet it can be used in 2 ways. To loose weight (example is atkins diet) but it is also effective in building muscle mass(any professional body builder will tell you the secret to building muscle is a high protein diet). A diet high in carbohydrates will definitely make anyone or animal add weight and fast. But the weight gain is mostly body fat not actual muscle. That is why i choose to feed shadow a high protein diet because like i said earlier I'm interested in building muscle mass not body fat. Carbs are full of calories but they are empty calories which means they do not provide any nutrition. I did notice shadow gain more weight when he was on his protein diet. But he didn't look fat or even plump. Infact I remember telling the vet when he came for his bi-weekly visit after i started the all chicken diet that I'm sure shadow has lost weight because I thought he was looking a bit slim only to realise he gained 4kg in 2 weeks. I had to tell them to double check. And ended reducing his portions because I didn't want his weight gain to be too much. I use a raw food calculator that is based on the dogs weight. Its calculated at 2% of the dogs weight to maintain his weight or 3-4% of the dogs weight if you want the dog to gain weight. I was using the 2-3% ratio and still noticed significant weight gain in shadow. At his heaviest weight I was feeding shadow 1kg of Chicken a day. I broke it down into 2 feedings of 500grams morning and evening. Im very strict with his feeding and feed him 6am and 6pm. When I was feeding him 3 times it was 6am, 12noon and 6pm. The chicken was a mix of Chicken Necks and chicken back, beef scraps whenever its available. I was boiling the chicken because he refused to eat it raw. I know a lot of people are obsessed with getting their dogs fat but I'm the opposite. I want a dog thats fit and healthy. I have always monitored and compared shadows weight with the growth chart. I know it is only a guideline but i use it to make sure we are on track. Right now I'm still on josera dog food because I still can't get chicken. I got very little from shoprite this week but it's not enough for him to be fed only chicken so I'm just giving it to him as a snack after meal time. I also tried mixing the shawa fish with the dry food and he ate it all up grin Can't wait to go back to chicken.

N.B aside from chicken, shadows other best food is amala. I have caught my son's nanny giving him amala several times and boy does he slurp the stuff. I constantly tell her not to disrupt his feeding schedule but once in a while i see her sneaking to give him his favourite amala in between meals. Oh well no harm in him enjoying our local delicacy grin

Wanted shadow to mate my zara who is on heat presently, but the distance is far, and am currently not at home, am in Akwa-ibom, so zara is with my fiancee enjoying herself.

Though we have gotten a stud for her very close to my fiancee place in Ibadan, which she would be going there tomorrow, to spend 5days.

You are right having a dog is similar to having a child. You are responsible for them and it's a big commitment

You know I actually got a parrot for my son but ended up releasing it. I just felt so guilty keeping it caged.

Sorry for replying late. I'm sure you have already found a mate for your dog. I really don't know if I'm ready for the hassle of mating shadow. Because of all my cats I can't allow any female dog stay over at my house.
