Hunting dogs are high-energy dogs and require extra fat and protein in their diets to help keep them fit, healthy and able to endure the riggers of the hunt. Whether you have a bird dog, a coon dog or a large hunt dog--such as those who hunt cougar or bear--the dog food you use should be formatted for your dog.
