The first six months are the "main growth phase". They require high quality protein and nutrients.

The next 6- 12 months require a reduced protein content to help prevent any growth disorders.

Now fully grown, finding the right diet to match their energy requirements is key. 

Now in old age, diets with a lower fat and phosphorus are needed.

General feeding instructions

  • Weigh puppies regularly and document weight development.
  • The information is a guide. Needs vary by age, breed, attitude, and activity level. It may therefore be necessary to adjust the feeding quantity on an individual basis.
  • Do not feed too much - pay attention to medium growth.
  • When adding snacks, the amount of food should be reduced accordingly. Tip: use part of the daily feed ration as a snack substitute.
  • Give the food dry or pour water (approx. 60°C) over it and let it soak in for a few minutes.
  • Divide the daily feed ration into several meals (3-4).
  • Keep fresh drinking water available at all times.
