Should you feel that you need dietry advice  I hope you find this page helpful.

Many people fee Raw or Kibble. Some feed both & a variety of both.

KIBBLE FEEDING  There are a huge variety of kibble/dried feeds on the market & would just advise your own research or recommended brands from breeders of healthy, well covered Danes. Try to find a kibble with minimal bulking agents and as natural as possible, lower than 24% protein and 12-14% fat, as a rough guide. The best dried food should contain balanced blends of minerals, proteins, meats, antioxidants, pro-biotics and essential fatty acids

RAW FEEDING  Advantages being fewer allergies (if any), good dental health & smaller stools (since no bulking agents).
