Feeding Instructions

Black Gold Explore Puppy Food is fully adequate and may be fed to puppies as soon as they will nibble at solid food (usually around 3 weeks of age). Start feeding your puppy a moist mixture containing 2 parts food to 1 part warm broth or water. The amount of liquid may be gradually reduced as the puppy grows older.

Puppies and growing dogs should be fed all they will consume in 3 - 4 feedings per day until they are about 6 months old. At that time, their food allowance should be gradually adjusted. Through proper food allowance and exercise, puppies should be kept in lean muscular condition until about 1 - 1/2 years of age.

Transition Instructions

When transitioning your dog to Black Gold Explorer Dog Food, substitute a small amount of current food with Black Gold Explorer, gradually increase over a six day period. Suggested transition as follows:

  • Day 1 - 1/4 Black Gold Explorer, 3/4 current food
  • Day 2 - 1/2 Black Gold Explorer, 1/2 current food
  • Day 3 - 3/4 Black Gold Explorer, 1/4 current food
  • Day 4 - 100% Black Gold Explorer

    wish it came in a smaller bag option

    By Terrig on Sep 26, 2021

    I got this from my breeder and really wanted to continue feeding to my puppy.Its a great food and she loved it. It only comes in a 40lb bag which is way too big for how much my puppy needs to eat and ony having a 6 week shelf life once opened. I wish it came smaller.

    Premium Food!

    By Bstra on May 29, 2021

    Puppy food is premium. Decent smell. Overall price was good compared to other vendors. Hard to find for sure! Chewy came to the rescue. In the end we had to change foods for our Puppy. But I still want to give it a good review because it's not the company's fault, my pup just needs a different kind of diet unfortunately! Still 5*!! Overall!

    Great Puppy Feed

    By MochaBulldog on Jan 27, 2021

    Got a sample from the breeder, and tried to switch our pup to a more mainstream brand. Puppy wouldn’t do it, so bought Black Gold from Chewy, and this is all he will eat. 3x a day he devours this stuff. I will stick with what works. It is a higher priced item, but what do I know? I am just the dumb human in the room.

    Works for us

    By MKM423 on Feb 10, 2021

    This is the food our breeder uses and what he sent home with our puppy. Our puppy devours it! His coat is soft, eyes bright and he has plenty of energy! Stool is firm and good frequency. Maybe not "the best of the best" but seems to work well for us and our pup.

    X - Pen - Sive!

    By SeaBass on Jan 5, 2021

    Bought a 40lb bag of Black Gold Puppy Food for $30 more than a local place retails it for....should have done my research. More expensive & less convenient!

    Amish Puppy Dog Food

    By RosieGangstaPuppy on Dec 25, 2020

    Only food my puppy will eat. Couldn't find it anywhere locally in Maryland. Had to order it online since only PA evidently stocks it. Puppy loves it.
