Which food should I feed my puppy?

It can be daunting bringing a new dog home, especially with so many things to think about. One of the big questions that new dog owners have is “What should I feed them?”. Our nutrition team have put together a fantastic article to help you know which of our puppy foods are most suited to your new arrival.

How much and how often should I be feeding my new dog?

Our Puppy range consists of three different diets; Puppy, Puppy Duck & Rice and Puppy Lamb & Rice. Each formulation helps us to ensure we have something for young dogs of a range of ages, shapes, sizes, and dietary requirements. Find out how often and how much you should be feeding them in this helpful guide.
