I am often asked what I use for training treats and scatters, and the honest answer is that it depends! It's usually a mix, and it normally includes a handful of Go! kibble. Having scoured the kibble market and read labels and websites back-to-front, top-to-bottom, and back again I've decided that this works for both me and the dogs. If your dog is training with me, there's a good chance that Go! kibble is on the menu.
Here's the info from Go!'s manufacturer, Petcurean:
GO! SOLUTIONS CARNIVORE GRAIN FREE SALMON + COD RECIPE
Does your dog have decidedly carnivorous preferences? Are you looking for a higher protein, low carbohydrate, grain-free diet that supports protein digestion, and helps maintain strong, lean muscles?
GO! SOLUTIONS CARNIVORE is Petcurean’s line of high meat protein recipes. 70% to 87% of the protein in each recipe comes from animal sources, and each recipe contains 6 to 11 premium quality fresh meats and meals for maximum protein and palatability. Protein requires a little extra time and energy for the body to digest; we’ve included digestive enzymes, probiotics, and prebiotic fibre to promote good digestion, protein utilization, and nutrient availability to ensure pets get the most nutritional bang for your buck.
This recipe features:
- 100% fresh premium quality salmon, cod & trout, plus premium quality salmon meal and turkey meal
- 73% of the protein comes from animal sources
- Fruits & veggies, with antioxidants to support immune system function
- Probiotics and prebiotic fibre promote healthy gut bacteria and good digestion
- Omega oils for skin and coat health
- Suitable for dogs of all ages (puppy, adult & senior)
I currently stock the 1.6kg bag, and can easily order the larger sizes.
