Product Description


Elite Grain & Potato Free Active Dog & Puppy Beef Formula by SportDogFood is coated and saturated with Nutri-Coat™ -- Freeze Dried Ingredients

Sport Dog Food is a balanced diet infused with a unique blend of freeze-dried ingredients. Our kibble is unique. It is cooked a bit differently than most other dry kibbles. After the low heat baking process, the kibble remains rather porous and plump. It is then sprayed with a proprietary blend of salmon oil, herring oil, pro-biotics and freeze-dried proteins, fruits and vegetables (never exposed to any heat) to further enhance the kibble.

Beef meal is high quality beef muscle (skeletal and cardiac) with the moisture removed. Beef meal provides the essential amino acids for nourishing muscles and bones. Our high quality beef meal also provides high levels of iron and zinc to support a healthy immune system. High quality, protein specific meals are simply a dried and more concentrated form of the meat. It is important to make sure the meal is protein specific (Beef Meal, Lamb Meal), and not generic like Meat Meal or By-Product Meal which by definition can contain any species of animal.

76% Protein from US pasture-raised Beef Meal 
24% Protein from Plant and Vegetable sources
0%  Protein from Wholesome Grains

** By Chines Theory, Beef Protein is considered a Neutral Protein.

sporting dog food and high protein

Promotes Strength and Endurance

Sporting breeds require high protein formulas that provide nutrients to build and repair muscles. Dogs obtain energy from a combination of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Optimal levels of protein and fat help dogs maintain an ideal body condition. Too high of a protein level can lead to loose stool, kidney problems, among other potential issues.

  • Protein (30%), Fat (19%) and calories (466 kcals/cup) to build and repair muscles and help prevent injury.
  • Quality source of Carbohydrates (29%) to provide energy that can be quickly used to maximize performance.
  • Vitamin E Supplement (125.43 iu/kg) to help protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.
  • Zinc Chelate (277.23 mg/kg) helps to promote tougher feet and healthier coat in working dogs.

It is best to stay below 33% protein with less than or equal to 75%-90% of that coming from animal protein (dogs have a hard time digesting anything over 38%). Grocery brands use ingredients like corn gluten meal to elevate their protein levels and skimp out on the important animal protein.

Omega Fatty Acids for Healthy Skin and Coat

Salmon Oil and Herring Oil help balance the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids (4.6:1) for a healthy skin and coat. Omega-3 fatty acids are critical for healthy skin, coat, and body function. Omega-3 fats are also known to modulate the body's inflammatory responses, such as arthritis. 

Essential Fatty Acids:
Omega 6 4.02%
Omega 3 0.87%

Healthy immune system and Consistent Stool 

Active Enzymes, Probiotics, Antioxidants, and Chelate Minerals help promote a healthy digestive tract and immune system. Vitamin C is a highly effective antioxidant that helps maintain a robust immune system and facilitates nutrient metabolism. While dogs can manufacture their own vitamin C, inclusion in the diet is beneficial especially wih increased physical stress from lactation, growth, hard work (dogs used for herding, hunting, tracking).

Sodium - AAFCO recommends a minimum of 0.3 sodium in dry dog food to maintain a healthy pet diet.  Most foods come in between 0.35 and 0.50, except for special low sodium prescription dog food.

pH LEVELS - pH is not recognized as an essential nutrient by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutritional Profile. Healthy dogs will have a slightly acidic pH level in their urine between 6.4 to 6.9. Meats such as Beef and Buffalo produce more acid than Chicken and Fish. These calculations are best estimates as every protein will vary slightly, but the sources of proteins used indicate a pH level between 6.5 and 6.9, conducive with maintaining a healthy pH level in the dog's urinary tract system.

Formula Field notes

  • Sport Dog Food is Nutrient Rich. Based on customer feedback and experiences feeding our own dogs, we believe there is a significantly higher percentage of animal protein compared to most foods on the market today so we strongly suggest a full 10-14 day transition period.

  • Sport Dog Food Kibble is dense and is likely higher in Kcals than most traditional kibble. Please remember to review our suggested feeding guidelines. Most customers have reported they are feeding much LESS than their previous formula. 
  • We use higher quality "Chelate” Minerals (better absorbed by the body) so at first you might experience a softer stool. If you experience loose stool, reduce your feeding amounts.
  • Every ingredient we use serves a positive purpose in the body. Better ingredients will result in your dog using more of the food. The more your pup uses, the less it will discard and soon you'll discover you'll be picking up less and saving more!
  • Sport Dog Food is naturally preserved. Keep dry kibble in a dark, dry area protected from extreme temperature swings and away from direct sunlight, Be sure to keep out of extreme heat. It is best to keep in original bag. If you use a container to store your food, please remember to wash sidewalls of any residual oil before you refill.The wrong storage container could cause a greasy film to build up on the container’s sides that will go rancid, cause the food to be distasteful and hasten food spoilage of any new food you add to the container.
  • Do Not Overfeed. Accidentally overfeeding is a common cause of loose stool. Slowly incorporate into diet over a number of days mixing with present food, gradually reducing old food while increasing Sport Dog Food amounts. The amounts suggested may vary according to age, size, temperament, activity level, breed, and surroundings.
