Feeding Your Puppy

Where do you start? That is the worried thought of every new owner as they bring their puppy home. Dog food can be a very personal choice for new and experienced owners. It will feel like you are drinking from a fire hose as you learn about whole food raw diets, kibble and wet food.

Veterinarians and nutritional experts will offer their expertise. Breeders in good standing and who have been breeding for a long time will have accumulated a wealth of experience from the many dogs they have owned and raised.
