Dogs Feeding

We are always available to guide and talk to you about how much to feed your dog. We believe that like humans a dog’s diet can vary and we can cater for this. PLEASE do not supplement your dog’s diet with extra calcium as this will promote a more rapid growth in the skeletal structure and not allow the muscular structure to keep up. Let your dog grow naturally and feed soft bones regularly.

A general guideline is to feed your dogs between2% and 3% of the dogs body weight, however, like us each dog requires more or less depending upon its genetics and exercise it gets.

Remember that a dog in the wild not always gets a balanced diet every day, however, it is essential that it eats a good quantity of the balanced formula over a weekly period.

Working dogs.

Working dogs require a greater intake of food and the intake should contain a higher percentage of good fat. Dogs get energy from fat. Typically a working dog may require up to double the quantity of a non working dog, 3% to 6% of it body weight.
