De Leonberger

The Leonberger is a Giant, noble, powerful yet gentle breed.

slapende honden

These wonderful big, soft family dogs are known for their stability. Even though they are huge dogs, in the house they go almost unnoticed.
They usually have a favourite spot where they drop themselves with a huge thudddddd

Watch dogs

Leonbergers can be excellent watchdogs, but lack the tendency to bark excessively and only with reason, usually because they are exited to greet visitors.

And although they love to go everywhere you go, they don’t give much problems staying alone for a while.

When we noticed that Caleb was sensitive for substances in kibble (grains and pork) we started researching how to make a good nutricious homemade meal taking in account the substances a (large) dog needs.

This is the way I feed mydogs

In the morning:


approx. 350 grams of chicken necks.
300 grams mix of meat/tripe/offal


In the evening:


250 grams meat
250 grams green tripe
200 grams veggies
1 teaspoon of fish oil/lineseed oil


Daily:


250ml Kefir
Kelp or green powder


Twice a week:

hardboiled egg, a raw bone and of course fruit also from time to time & fat raw seafish for example salmon (fat belly part)

Since I feed my dogs this way, no growing pains have occured.

DO NOT give rice, pasta or grain. This may disrupt their gut flora and has no nutritional value for dogs

* Kefir is a probiotic that you make yourself with milk. More info on the internet.
