Some Generic Advice on Good Food for Leonbergers and All Other Dogs

In this post I am reviewing a Leonberger book that only exist as an eBook/Kindle, The Leonberger Good Food Guide Kindle Edition by Laura James, published May 28, 2012. It is a very shorty book, 23 pages, ASIN: B00874NVY8. You can buy it from Amazon for $6.43.

Below I am posting my Amazon review of The Leonberger Good Food Guide. Click here to see my original Amazon review. BTW I gave the book two stars.

Not specific to Leonbergers and with some misinformation

This short book cover food, diet and nutrition for dogs. I say dogs because I could not see much Leonberger specific content in the book. In general, I think the advice was good, but the book avoided anything breed specific such as suggested calory intake, the size of food portions, or nutritional requirements for growing giant breeds (more protein and fat). Admittedly it is difficult to say much that is breed specific on the topic of dog food but that’s after all the topic of the book. The only really breed specific information I could find in the book was wrong. The book stated “Leonbergers fall within the medium to large size range with females weighing in at 35 to 50 pounds and males generally at 45 to 60 pounds.” The weight of an adult male Leonberger is between 120 to 170 pounds. Therefore, it is questionable whether this book is of any additional help over a general dog book on nutrition. However, the advice was good, even though it was generic, and as far as I could tell, the book seemed to be well edited, therefore I give it two stars.

The points you bring up are so important such as the type of food, portion sizes, and breed-specific information. It’s a shame this book’s information was inaccurate when it did give breed-specific information. Great review, Thomas!
