Building a Better Dog Food and the Buzz About the Brussels Griffon

“A heck of a lot of science goes into dog food.” So writes Editor Susan Chaney in her report on the palatability of the products we feed our dogs. From “brown and round” kibble to “refrigerated” meals, making nutrition edible requires plenty of research. Learn about the 10 major factors that affect a food’s palatability, and find out why a more tasty treat doesn’t necessarily mean a dog will eat more of it.

The alert and intelligent Brussels Griffon is a real charmer, with an expressive face and a genuine sensitivity. The Belgian native sprang from the streets of the capital city to become a quaint and amusing companion, albeit one filled with self-importance. Find out which breeds figured into its development, and discover the qualities that create its “almost human” expression.

Many of this year’s top show dogs are featured in their own beautiful mini-websites on Best In Show Daily. Simply click on a banner ad to see the dog’s up-to-date show history, plus a slide show of photos that reveals exactly why it’s a top dog.
