Basic Needs

nce you have the right type of food for your dog, establish an appropriate amount for each meal and how often they should be served. Fashion your dog's eating habits around nutritional guides and the recommendations from your vet, to determine which feeding model is best for your dog.

  • Free choice: Food is available to your dog at all times.
  • Time-limited feeding: Food is available to your dog for a limited time.
  • Meal feeding: A regulated amount of food is available to your dog at specific times of the day.

Keep track of your dog's physical condition and weight. Do this every 6 months and base a cycle around the progress you see in your dog's healthy growth.
