Feeding Your New Puppy by Dances with Wolves Ranch

Dances with Wolves Ranch

It can be overwhelming looking for dog food for your new White Swiss Shepherd Puppy. To be a responsible dog owner, you need to make sure that your puppy is eating premium high-quality dog food. Finding the right food will keep them healthy after they leave Dances with Wolves Ranch.

Frequency of Feeding

For the first 4 to 12 weeks puppies need food with high nutrient content to support their development. Young puppies need to eat frequently and should be fed around 3-4 times a day. Once they are 3 to 6 months old, the frequency of feeding can go down. Around the age of 6 months you can feed twice a day. At about 1 year old you can begin to transition to feeding once a day or stick with twice daily throughout their life.

Reach out to your breeder, Dances with Wolves Ranch, for a high-quality dog food recommendation. They will know which food your puppy eats and what will work best for your puppy’s breed. A purely kibble dog food diet is entirely sufficient for your White Swiss Shepherd puppy, but if you’d like, you can occasionally mix in some raw meat or vegetables.

Portion Sizes

The best way to determine how much food you should give your Dances with Wolves Ranch puppy is to keep an eye on their weight. Individual metabolism, energy output, and the dog’s body type determine portion sizes. Every dog may need a different amount. If your White Swiss Shepherd puppy isn’t finishing their food or starts to look too heavy, cut back on how much you’re feeding them. However, if you can see their ribs, you may need to start to feed them more.
