Give puppies the food they need during each growth phase.
Until they are about four weeks old, puppies feed on their mother’s milk or special formula. After that and until their first birthday, they should get puppy food in their bowl three times a day. This food contains special nutrients to support pups while they grow, which is why it is unsuitable for adult dogs, and vice versa. High-quality protein, vitamins and minerals promote growth, deliver lots of calories and keep the immune system and metabolism active.
Feeding recommendations for puppies
Puppies would love to just stuff themselves full of food all day long, but it’s best to follow the serving recommendations on the back of the packaging to ensure that your dog gets what it needs while protecting it from gaining excess weight. Also remember to make sure it gets plenty of water. The serving recommendations are for healthy dogs with an average level of activity, so if your puppy gets sick, you should follow your vet’s feeding recommendations.
Using food to train your puppy
Not only does puppy food provide nutrients and enjoyment for young dogs, it is also an excellent training tool. Before you start teaching your four-legged friend specific commands with treats, you can use meal times to foster patience and discipline in your pup. The best way to do this is through fixed feeding times, during which your dog must practise patience while you prepare its food. This not only teaches it discipline, but also that you are the authority figure in control of the food, so, for the sake of education, do not give in to its begging and crying, and resist the temptation to offer the dog your own leftovers. Sooner or later, inappropriate nutrition can lead to digestive problems and other diseases. To make it easier for your pup to wait, you can distract it by playing or by only placing the feeding bowl in sight at feeding times.
Carefully selected puppy food that covers your dog’s nutritional needs in the form of meat, fish, vegetables, fruit and herbs and is also tasty can be found in the Maxi Zoo range. The online shop offers a large selection of puppy foods which you can order directly online.
