Adirondack Kennel has been producing our own exercise and working dog supplements since 1996. We started using them ourselves and then had large kennels locally asking if they could purchase some of them. Mostly large foxhound and coyote hunting hound kennels and some sled dog kennels and some regular house dogs too. Please read the descriptions and see if any of them appeal to you. All products have been tested on our dogs here after a few years of getting the recipe down to where we feel it is the best it can be to accomplish the task it is designed for.

RECHARGEtm post exercise supplement.
A dog’s nutritional needs for short-term recovery immediately after strenuous activity are different than the nutrition that comes from a performance dog food that is designed to help with prolonged recovery.
ADK's select carbohydrate restore a critical glucose energy source found in muscles called glycogen, and amino acids from select proteins activate the rebuilding of proteins. RECHARGE contains a targeted blend and proportion of carbohydrates fueled by maltodextrin as its main source, which is the “optimal” carbohydrate source.
Although well-conditioned dogs increasingly rely on fat metabolism on successive days of exercise, muscle and liver glycogen stores still contribute to overall performance and support the periodic intense bursts of speed needed to compete. A dog having depleted glycogen stores, or only partially replenished stores, will definitely realize an impact on the next day’s performance.
Several studies have examined the benefits of post-exercise maltodextrin supplementation in dogs that perform prolonged exercise. Dogs that were given 1.5 to 2.0 g maltodextrins/kg body weight post-exercise were able to recover, on average, about 50% of pre-exercise glycogen stores within 4 hours and about 85% of pre-exercise glycogen within 24 hours, while dogs fed but not supplemented recovered less than 40% of their pre-exercise glycogen after 24-hours. Further studies confirmed the ability of maltodextrin to enhance plasma glucose levels.
This product is to be used for running on successive days only.
IF a rest day is given, glycogen levels will return to normal levels.
1/3 to 1/2 cup per 50lbs of body weight to be given in room temperature water within 30 minutes following exercise, preferably 15 to 20 minutes following right after the dogs have cooled down a little bit. Normal feeding can be given an hour or more later.

PRO-BLEND Analysis : 75% Protein 6% fat.
Adirondack kennel developed this dry mix based on a need of higher protein and energy levels not available in most brands of dry kibble based dog food. Some dogs do very well on for instance a quality diet consisting of 30% protein and 20% fat, but many canine athletes thrive and need that higher fat diets and to keep up with that fat a higher protein levels are also needed.
With Pro-Blend, one can cater each dogs requirements quite nicely. One can also use Pro-Blend for baiting water or finicky eaters.
