Puppies may be introduced to our Weaning food from around 3 to 4 weeks of age. After they have fed from Mum, try tempting them with a little paste, gradually increasing the amount over a week to ten days, when you may wish to switch to our Puppy food.
Once the puppy has been weaned, start by feeding 4-6% of the puppy's ideal body weight per day, ideally spread over three or four meals per day.
Once the puppy reaches around 5-6 months of age, you may reduce the number of feeds to twice per day, and gradually reduce the amount to be fed to around 2-3% by the time the dog has achieved full size.
A full grown adult dog should be fed around 2-3% of the dog's ideal body weight per day, ideally spread over two meals. If your dog needs to lose some weight, try feeding slightly less than this quantity, or switch to a meat with a lower fat content, until the ideal weight has been achieved.
Don't forget that exercise is essential too!
If your dog has been eating the same protein every day for months or years, there is a good chance he or she may develop an allergy to it.
Contrary to popular belief, dogs need diversity in their diets just like humans do - so don't be afraid to mix up your usual order a bit and give your dog some variety!
