Can you become a Canine Nutritionist in the UK? http://thespiritualdogtrainer.com/can-you-become-a-canine-nutritionist-in-the-uk/
This person seems to be a little one sided and ill-informed.
'As the current legislation stands only pet shop owners, or those who work for a dog food company are able to discuss dog food and diets with dog owners for a profit.' - no it doesn't unless I missed that section and I have already been offered work.
'Currently there are no specific trainings offered in the UK to become a recognised, qualified, professional ‘canine nutritionist’' - Well that throws my qualification out the window. There is no law on what a nutritionist is or level of qualification.
'What can I do to improve my knowledge or help dogs?' - Listening and learning from the expert scientists and using fact rather than opinion. Filling a freezer full of raw meat or dog food doesn't make you an expert. As I have never seen fake dog food I am not sure what they mean by real.
'The nutritional elements are not included in the guidelines for a Complete food, most of the elements do not withstand processing methods. The dog misses out on much needed nutrition by eating only processed food.' - The law prevents that happening. It may not make a dog excel but it must be nutritionally complete. If it isn't very digestible add more so the dog can absorb enough.
Basically this person is a passionate raw food feeder and only respects or listens 'experts' that follow his beliefs. Every reputable expert knows that it is possible to feed a balanced raw, wet, dry or even homemade diet as easy as it is to make it unbalanced. I think poorly of many foods in the market but they are all legally marketed.
