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

    Exceptional Food

    By on

    I have used Black Gold with my lab when he was a puppy and am now returning to Black Gold with my boxer puppy. The quality of this food is outstanding. My lab always had the most amazing shiny coat and since he was a working dog, the food gave him all the nutrients he needed. I have two daughters in vet school, so I am a bit more picky and hopefully informed than most. This is my first time using Chewy. I was very happy with the ease of ordering and the speed of delivery. Will use again.

    Expensive but delicious

    This is an expensive dog food, however it is what my pup was eating prior to us getting her. She does love it, though.

    This is what the breeder was feeding the pups before we picked her up and you can't beat the 30% off on your first order.

    It’s a pass, not a smash

    By on

    This food really upset my puppy’s digestive system. If you enjoy picking up mushy poop that smells horrible, this is the food for you.

    Was pleased with this puppy dog food. My puppy enjoys it. Plus I also use a handful to train him with. It’s Better then giving him milk bones which give puppies the runs.

    I am a show Siberian Husky breeder, and a Vet Tech by trade. I have researched dog food extensively and I can tell you The new formulas by Black Gold dog food win win win. Perfect LOWER Calcium Phosphorus ratios for dogs this helps with kidney health and for large breeds keeps them at less of a risk for Dysplasia. I love the Explorer and puppy formula and use it as a lifestage formula for my dogs They are on it for life. Perfect stools and you can feed less since it is so nutrient dense. Email me if you have any questions. I absolutely love this dog food and am extremely picky about what I feed. dakinesiberianhuskies.com
