CHILLIWACK LABRADOODLES PUP DATE!
Good Evening Chilliwack Labradoodle Families!
This is our Five-week Pup Date on the puppies from The Surprise Parti Litter!
The last Pup Date we provided you with some information around The Importance Of Quality Sleep For Your Puppy, Crates, Beds And Potty Training. This week we would like to give you information regarding Exercise, Puppy Food/Eating Routine and Leaving Your Puppy Alone.
Puppy Food, Treats and Bones
During our Puppy Visit, we spoke to you about what we are feeding our puppies and our dogs. Some of this is a refresher, I always find it better to hear things more than once.
-Right now we are feeding our puppies a high-quality kibble that can be purchased at many pet stores such as Pet Smart. The brand we use is Nutrience Sub-Zero For Puppies, it is the Green Bag.
-Another great food to feed your puppy would be "Smack," which is a high quality raw dehydrated dog food. You will not find it at all pet stores only some. We order ours online and have it shipped to our door.
-Ziwi Peak Brand Dog Food another high quality raw dehydrated dog food. Not all pet stores keep this brand in stock we get ours from "Tail Blazers," Pet Food Store.
-We use the "Ziwi Peak" as training treats and our dogs love them! You can use whatever your dog has for kibble to train him he will be quite happy with that.
-Our favorite treats and bones to give our dogs are:
their kibble, dehydrated liver treats, various dehydrated meat treats, pieces of cheese, small cubed cooked chicken (this can be messy when using for reward, the cooked chicken will break apart easily)bully sticks, deer antlers, and their Kong.
By the time you take your puppy home, he/she will be eating dry Nutrience Sub-Zero Puppy Kibble three times a day. The amount that you feed your puppy at each feeding can be determined by your puppy's weight. Please read the instructions on the bag for your puppy's daily feeding amount based on his weight. Divide the amount by three and that will be your puppies portion of kibble at each meal. As your puppy grows you can increase the amount based on weight and divide his/her portions into two feedings. Typically when your puppy comes home to you they will be on an 8:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 5:00 pm feeding routine so that your puppy has plenty of time to eliminate before bed. Fresh unlimited access to water throughout the day is extremely important to your dog, we suggest putting the water away about 1.5 hours prior to bedtime, in order to help with night time potty.
For today's Pup Date I would like to speak to you a bit more about why a dog's crate and bed are important.
