(CLICK PHOTOS TO VISIT EACH BRAND'S WEBSITE)
WE FEED A 50/50 MIXTURE OF DRY AND WET FOOD PLUS THE ADDITION OF FRESH VEGETABLES, COOKED EGG, AND FRUIT AS SNACKS.
All of our studs and pregnant females get a "super beefed up meal" while they are producing or pregnant/nursing. They will have extra meat and egg for protein, and especially for our females, they will have cottage cheese (for calcium) in addition to the added meat and egg. It is very important to us to maintain our dogs so that they are in perfect health!
We also introduce all of our puppies to the different foods above (subject to the seasons for the fruit) so that you have healthy snack options for your puppy that he/she will already be introduced to and enjoy!
Proper nutrition is very important for breeding dogs as it is physically demanding on a female dog to give birth and care for a litter of puppies! Quite often a female dog will shed out around 40% to 60% of her fur while she is nursing, and she may also lose a fair bit of weight. Those are the outward demands that we can see, but essentially she gives her puppies everything she has in her body by way of nutrients, and even the calcium from her bones! This is why we rarely, unless under veterinarian advisement breed back-to-back heat cycles so that our females can have time to rejuvenate between litters, and we also feed extra foods that are rich in vitamins to help replenish the essentials that the mother needs to be strong and healthy for herself and her puppies.
It is likewise important for a growing puppy to have adequate nutrition and we have selected a puppy formula that allows for proper nutrition to be absorbed and for our puppies to maintain excellent health.

Did you know that pork is one of the highest complete meat proteins you can give your dog? It contains essential amino acids in high quantities that may assist in your dog’s muscle development. In addition to the nutrition benefits of pork, the pork in your inception pork recipe comes from the rich farmlands of Iowa, where the farms are owned and ran by local farmers, and agriculture is thriving.
The oats used in inception come from the pristine oat fields of Canada. Oats are high in fiber and contain antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, all working together to promote and maintain the health and well-being of your dog.
Lastly, the millet and milo we use are grown in the vibrant green farmlands of North Dakota, harvested with care by local farmers and prepared to meet the high standards that your dog deserves. Millet is also a healthy source of carbohydrates for most dogs and is easy to digest.
Pork is one of most complete meat proteins; it contains essential amino acids in high quantities that may assist in your dog’s muscle development.
Pork has high levels of vitamins B1, B3, B6 and is also high in selenium, phosphorus, and zinc. It also contains high levels of collagen which may benefit skin, hair, and joint health.
All our recipes contain other wholesome, all-natural ingredients.
These ingredients include oats, a good healthy fiber source. Oats contain beta-glucan, which is a soluble fiber that helps aid digestion. Oats are full of linoleic acid, a type of omega-6 fatty acid, which helps keep skin strong and healthy. Oats also contain many essential minerals such as zinc, iron, manganese and copper.
Millet is a healthy source of carbohydrates for most dogs, and is easier to digest. Compared to many other grains, millet has a relatively high protein content. This may be more suitable for dogs with food sensitivities to more common grains. Millet contains many beneficial nutrients such as copper, phosphorus, manganese, and magnesium. Millet is a grain high in B-vitamins and iron.
Milo contains many other micro-nutrients such as magnesium, copper, and zinc. Milo also contains relatively high levels of dietary fiber which can help aid in digestive health. Lastly milo contains natural antioxidants, which benefit the immune system in dogs. To help booster the immune system, we’ve included ground flaxseed, which is an excellent source of plant omega-3 fatty acids and a great source of natural antioxidants as well.
Vitamins and Minerals:
Last but not least, we’ve packed Inception with vitamins and essential nutrients sourced from a European human consumable vitamin plant made specifically for Pets Global, making our recipes complete and balanced.
Inception supplements all of its dog diets with extra taurine and L-Carnitine. To help boost the immune system, we’ve included ground flaxseed, which is an excellent source of plant omega-3 fatty acids and a great source of natural antioxidants as well.
