Nutrition

Our litter is fed twice daily approximately 1 cup in the morning (7-8AM) and 1 cup in the evening (7-8PM). The amounts will increase as they grow! Make sure if you switch foods to do so slowly. Be sure to feed your puppy the amount called for by weight. There is a chart that should be on your puppy’s food bag to show the approximate amount they should have daily. 

We feed them Nature’s Logic Beef https://www.natureslogic.com/dog-products/, which is an All Life Stages food.
