Dog enjoy clean fresh water, so try to change this at least twice daily for you dog. We dont recommend other fluids and good old water is perfect to keep your dog hydrated and healthy.
How often to feed your puppy?
All dogs are different based on breed and activity but a rough guide to how you should feed your dog is:
- 3-4 meals per day until they are 12 weeks old
- 2-3 meals per day for dogs aged up to 6 months
- 1-2 meals per day for dogs over 6 months old
- Meals should be spaced out evenly throughout the day.
Some people will leave a permanent bowl of dry food. Some breeds self feed well, while other will over eat. As your puppy develops you should get to understand what suits them best.
Keeping food consistent
Generally its good to keep your dog on a fairly consistent diet, and not change brands or type of food too much. This might seem a little boring but dogs thrive on this and there bodies get used to types of food. If you want to change your puppy’s diet, do it gradually over a week to avoid any tummy upsets. Start putting a little of the new food with their normal and increase the ratio so at the end of the week they are on the new food.
