Golden Retrievers Feeding
As you prepare for the puppy's arrival, consider in advance what kind of food your dog will eat. The most convenient dishes are made of stainless steel. Plastic bowls are much less durable and very short-lived.Be sure to ask breeders what kind of food the puppy is accustomed to at the time of sale. Weaning, lost siblings, unfamiliar surroundings - all this puts the puppy under serious stress, so he may have a lack of appetite for the first days in your home. Do not worry! To make the change in conditions of detention painless, try to maintain her usual diet. In the future, you can gradually accustom your dog to the diet you think is most suitable.
In general, diets can be divided into three groups:
1.The way the dog is fed only natural products: meat, cereals and vegetables, cottage cheese, raw meat, fish-based dishes. If the diet is chosen correctly, the dog will be in very good condition and the quality of its diet will be very good. However, this variety also has serious disadvantages: it is a very laborious option for the dog owner, requires a lot of time and can be expensive.
2.Secondly, feeding with dry food. You can buy dry food from various companies, but still it is better to use known products, low-quality dry food, of course, will not bring any benefit to the dog. I would like to highlight the following by listing fairly reliable feeds: Purina Pro Plan, Diamond, Solid Gold, Royal Canine, Hills, Eukanuba. These manufacturing companies produce a wide range of foods designed for dogs of different age groups and different lifestyles.
3.Third, Mixed feeding. The use of high-quality dry food and meat, cottage cheese, kefir, crackers. With such a feeding scheme, one rule must be strictly observed. Dry food and food should not be mixed in the same container. in one feeding you only feed the dog dry food and in the other you only feed the dog.
