How Does Raw Dog Food Affects Your Dog's Health


Feeding raw dog food is hardly a new concept. Research has shown that feeding raw food enables your dog to live a longer and healthier life than their counterparts who are fed commercial dog food.
Dogs fed with natural dog food have stronger immune systems and are therefore better able to resist disease and parasites.

Raw dog food follows as closely as possible what the dog in his wild state would eat if he were eating prey.
The diet takes into account the limitations of your dog's short digestive tract, his strong stomach and the enzymes his system produces to digest food.
BARF, short for "bones and raw food" is an acronym for raw dog food diet.
The theory behind all this is that domesticated dogs are not markedly different from their wild counterpart. Up until less than a century ago, before the advent of commercial dog foods, most dogs ate as wolves did--fresh, oftentimes raw meat, usually scavengered or tossed to them as a leftover. What raw feeders advocate is not a radical departure from the norm, but a return to how dogs were meant to eat in the first place.
Your dog's teeth are there to rip and tear and crunch flesh and bones. And in case, you're concerned about bacteria.......your dog has short digestive tracts with powerful enzymes for dealing with harmful becteria, such as salmonella.
Dogs, like wolves, need raw meat to derive crucial enzymes and nutrients, which are destroyed during the cooking process.
Cooking or using processed foods present the following problems:
destroying vital enzymes and antioxidants
denature proteins and destroying amino acids
High-temperature cooking changes molecular structure, and studies show that cancer-forming compounds can be produced under these conditions.

IN THE UNITED STATES THERE IS AN AUSTRALIAN LABRADOODLE CLUB


People like to be members of clubs and share their interests with other likeminded people. There are clubs out there for just about everything under the sun. If you like to collect stamps, there is a stamp collectors club that meets in the capitol city twice a month and lets people from all over the state swap stamp collecting stories and browse the stamp collection’s of other stamp enthusiast. If your heart belongs to the world of bird watching, there are a number of clubs that you can join to meet other people who, like you, love to watch birds and compete to see how many different species they can catalog. The whole idea behind clubs is to give people with special interests an outlet for their passion and to share that passion with others like them. The same concept that is behind nearly all the clubs is also behindthe National Australian Labradoodle Club or NAC.

The NAC has been around for nearly ten years in order to promote, 

 educate and connect labradoodle breeders and owner together in a group of labradoodle lovers.  This group started with only two breeders, one from Texas and Another in Oregon. The two breeders just wanted to create a link between themselves so that they could share breeder information about their dogs. Soon however, people who came to the breeders to purchase their Australian labradoodle puppies became interested in the idea of a link between all labraddodle owners and breeds. Just five years later the NAC was a real organization that had member all across the United States and Canada. People who own these dogs seem to have a special bond with everything from the labradoodle world. These dogs are popular and yet they remain somewhat rare, a fact which gave even more reason for people to want to connect with other owners.
The NAC does everything from share information about funny stories concerning their dogs, to discussing health issues that their animals might be having and trying to offer insight to other owners about possible solutions to different aliments the labradoodle is prone to having. No matter if the member is a long time owner or has just bought their first puppy, they can become member just based upon their love of the breed.
The NAC has several paper publications which discuss the latest news in the world of labradoodles. There are also online publications that show funny pictures of owners alongside their labradoodles or offer different products for owners and breeders. The group has recently been pushing for a convention to be organized this year in Las Vegas. A convention in Las Vegas would be a time for all labradoodle owners and breeders to come together and share in their passion. The idea of having breeders/owners conventions is nothing new; there are approximately 27 different dog breed conventions in the US every year. There are even already general dog breed conventions in which the labradoodle has already participated. It appears that soon the labradoodle will have its own platform to shine on.
