Feeding your dog is a topic, which is shrouded in myths and beliefs. This
write-up and the ones following it will give you practical advise on how to
feed your dog properly. The posts are aimed especially at new dog owners, who
perhaps like you, are wondering about the basics such as: how much food should
I give my dog or how often should my dog be fed. If questions such as these are
puzzling you, then you are in the right place. Don’t worry, feeding your dog is
not rocket science, but there are a number of things you must know, to get it
right from the start.
How often should I feed my dog?
As stated above, our aim is really to help you with the basics and one of the
basic questions probably puzzling you is how often should I be feeding my dog?
The short answer is that it depends on her age.
Below, is a handy table to help you with that question:
# of mealtimes per day
2 to 4 months
3 to 4
4 to 6 months
6 to 12 months
1 to 2
Please note that these guidelines are not strict rules rather than a framework
to demystify dog feeding. It may well be that you cannot feed your new puppy
four times a day since you have to be at work all day. Feeding her early in the
morning and immediately once you get back home and then again before bed time
may well be the thing you end up doing, but the most important thing is to be
consistent and use your common sense.
If your dog is growing up too fast, clearly getting fat or will not finish her
meal at mealtime are clear signg that you are most likely over-feeding her.
This in turn means that there are two things you can do:
Feed her less frequently.
Feed her less food per mealtime.
Now that we have the mealtime frequency covered, please
read on to find out about how much you should
be feeding your dog per mealtime.
