Provide fresh water at all times.
Puppies: Puppies will typically start nibbling moistened dog foods at 3 to 4 weeks of age. Feed as much as the puppy will clean up in 20 minutes in 4 feeding intervals throughout the day. You may mix with water, broth, or milk at a ratio near 3 parts food and 1 part liquid. Do not leave moistened food out for more than 30 minutes to ensure product freshness. Puppies will be weaned from milk by 8 weeks of age. Continue to feed up to 4 times per day, and within a few months, the puppies can be transitioned to a self-feeder until about 1 year of age. At this point feed so as to maintain good body condition using the feeding chart as a guide.
Pregnancy and Nursing: Energy requirements are continually changing during stages of gestation and lactation and may require up to 4 times recommended levels of intake to maintain good body condition. Feed an amount needed to maintain good body condition of your female dog.
