Dog Energy & Temperament

Bernie's Perfect Poop can help your dog’s energy and temperament be optimal.

Good gut health is key for your dog to have all the energy he should. Additionally, a dog with optimal nutrition and energy will feel his happiest, and his temperament will be positive. Bernie’s Perfect Poop helps optimize your dog’s energy level and leads him to his best temperament and mood. 

  • Good health begins in the gut. When your dog is healthy and feels good, his energy level and temperament are optimized. He’s able to keep up with all the frisbee throwing you want, and his disposition will be a positive one. Bernie’s Perfect Poop can help your dog’s gut health lead to his best energy level and temperament. 
  • High-quality fiber is a key component to a high-energy diet for your dog. When your dog eats a diet high in fiber, he’ll be able to move food through his digestive tract efficiently and at just the right speed for optimal nutrient absorption. When your dog gets all the nutrition he should from the food you feed, his energy level will be its best. Additionally, a high fiber diet feeds and fertilizes the probiotics (beneficial bacteria) in his gut, which means his gut microbiome is its healthiest.
  • Bernie's Perfect Poop also combines prebiotics and probiotics to balance your dog's gut microbiome. When your dog’s microbiome is its healthiest, he’s able to have an immune system that can ward off conditions that would make him feel sick. When his gut has the right balance of beneficial bacteria, his intestinal lining can absorb all the nutrition that it should to fuel all the activities he wants. A healthy gut can also prevent any toxins or allergens from leaking into his blood, which could put a damper on his energy level and his temperament. A healthy, thriving community of beneficial bacteria ensures your dog will be able to digest his food to the fullest, and that will make him his happiest and most full of energy. Researchers continually connect the gut biome and the brain, and they’re both dependent upon each other for optimal functioning.
  • Digestive enzymes allow your dog to break the food he eats down to the smallest it can be for maximum nutrient absorption. Every cell in your dog’s body needs fuel for proper energy levels and digestive enzymes ensure this happens. When he takes a bite of food with Bernie’s Perfect Poop added, the digestive enzymes break his food down to the smallest sizes it needs to be to fuel his cells at a molecular level. This means he’ll have maximum nutrient absorption and energy, and he’ll be in a better frame of mind for it too.  
  • Bernie's Perfect Poop is a 4-in-1 combination of fiber, prebiotics, probiotics, and enzymes. Good dog gut health is the key to a happier, healthier life for your dog. When your dog gets all he should get from his food, he has loads of energy. When his gut is balanced and full of beneficial bacteria, he’s able to have a better mood and temperament.

What is poor energy and temperament in dogs and what are the symptoms? 

When your dog has poor energy levels and poor temperament, there’s a good chance he’s not getting enough nutrition from the food he’s eating. We define optimal energy levels based on optimal digestion and absorption of food. Nutrition from food fuels everything your dog does. When he’s not absorbing all he needs to fuel his body, he may be lethargic and even seem depressed. 

Symptoms of poor energy and temperament in dogs include:

  • Lethargy
  • Whining
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Pacing
  • Lack of appetite
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Mischievous behavior

More information about dog energy and temperament

When your dog doesn’t have the energy to play and adventure with you, it’s sad for you both. It can also cause him to have a poor temperament, verging on depression even, and that’s not fun for either of you. Ensuring your dog has optimal gut health can help him have his highest energy levels and be in the best of temperaments for every situation.

Fiber may help with dog lethargy and temperament

When it comes to fueling your dog’s body so he’s not lethargic and depressed, fiber is key. A high-quality fiber-rich diet will help the food you feed him go through his digestive tract at just the right speed and consistency it needs to for maximum nutrient absorption. Perfect Poop is a combination of Miscanthus grass, pumpkin, and flaxseed and other healthy ingredients. These soluble and insoluble fibers push your dog’s food through his digestive tract and as they do, your dog is able to glean all the vitamins and minerals from his food that he should. This helps fuel his body and offers the most energy accessibility to him. And, when he’s feeling his best and most energetic, his mood and temperament will likely be optimal too.

Prebiotics and probiotics may help with poor energy in dogs

If your dog’s gut is not healthy, he’s not healthy. It’s as simple as that. And when he’s not healthy, he’s not able to optimally absorb vitamins, minerals and nutrients from the food you give him. More, his gut is a microbiome full of bacteria. When there’s a thriving colony of beneficial bacteria (probiotics), his gut lining is its healthiest. He’s able to absorb nutrition as he should, and nothing leaks out and causes additional inflammation or irritation (Leaky Gut or dysbiosis). Moreover, research emphasizes the role the gut has in a healthy disposition or temperament in humans and dogs. The prebiotic Bernie’s Perfect Poop uses is Inulin, which acts as a fertilizer for the good bacteria in your dog’s lower digestive tract. When fed well with prebiotics and fermentation from high-quality fiber, probiotics thrive and keep harmful bacteria away. That means he’s able to produce neurotransmitters and feel-good hormones that his brain and his gut need for the best temperament he can have. Prebiotics and probiotics are key supplements to helping your dog's gut health be at its best because they keep the right balance of healthy bacteria in your dog's gut.

Digestive enzymes may help with energy and temperament in dogs

Digestive enzymes in Bernie's Perfect Poop will help your dog break the food you give him down better. If his food is broken down to the smallest level, it’s easier to absorb all the nutrition he should. Your dog needs optimal nutrient absorption all the way down to the cellular level, and with each bite of Bernie’s Perfect Poop, he’s taking in digestive enzymes that will help make that happen. This means he will have the fuel he needs to be full of energy and vitality for all the adventures you have together.
