Maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle is my goal as a mom of two girls and three Golden Retrievers. Setting up healthy eating habits early is key and the best way to do this is by example and that is something I strive to do every day.
Now that my girls are older it's so important for them to be involved in taking care of the dogs and this includes what we give them for treats and meals. We include our dogs into everything we do as a family and that also involves mealtime.

Besides exercise and mental health, diet is the biggest contributor to their wellbeing. Teaching the girls which whole foods are safe for dogs is a great way for them to bond. When the girls reach for some carrots as a snack, they know that the dogs can enjoy these as well. Same goes for blueberries and bananas, which are just a few of their favorites. As a result of knowing which foods the dogs can eat they also know which foods are toxic and are just not healthy for them, this knowledge alone has helped the dogs maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Another way I have taught the girls about healthy choices for the dogs is mealtime. Learning what type of food we give the dogs and why has given them a good understanding of how important it is that we know what exactly is in their food.
When choosing a brand the first thing we look at is the ingredient list to make sure it contains quality ingredients that will benefit their wellbeing. Chicken Soup for the Soul dog food is a perfect example of this and it's a brand that the Goldens really enjoy eating.
Chicken Soup for the Soul is made with love in the USA and developed by a family-owned and operated company. They use whole ingredients only with protein at the top of the list and no by-product meals. Just as important, there is no corn, wheat or soy and contains no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or flavors.
One of the things that caught my eye when choosing Chicken Soup for the Soul dog food is the Grain Free option. My dogs are susceptible to ear infections and we have found that grains have been a cause so it's great that we have this option to give them and not have to worry about any flare ups.
