Dr Mark Roberts
Nutritional Scientist at Tucker Tub
I’ve been involved in companion animal nutrition for many years, both in the commercial sector and research. My PhD focused on the instinctive diet selection of dogs and the health benefits from consuming a diet rich in protein and fat. In addition to these studies, I have spent time conducting research in Alaska, examining the feeding habits of wild wolves, how these impact on markers of health, and comparing this to domestic dogs, based on what they are fed.
I practice what I preach and feed my kennel of 20 working mid and distance racing Seppala Siberian Huskies a diet based primarily on this macronutrient composition. The need for superior nutrition is even more imperative for working dogs, with any nutritional shortcomings becoming evident quickly.
My intention, is to continue to provide the best diets possible to dogs, utilising my nutritional experience and research background, combined with robust science. I also want to share my nutritional knowledge, and explain why a protein and fat based diet, is the best approach, to help dogs live long and happy lives!
