Puppy Food and Feeding Essentials

Puppies can't have just any plain old dog food: they need a special diet that contains the right levels of energy, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to help support your their healthy growth and development. Dog food is our specialty here - below are a few brands to consider for your pup, before transitioning him or her over to an adult formula.

Sleeping

A good quality dog food, plenty of exercise, and of course lots of peaceful sleep is just what your puppy needs to grow up healthy and strong. And since being a growing puppy is hard work, it's important that your little one has a comfortable place to rest (puppies also do a lot of growing while they sleep). Plus, providing your pup with a bed of his own will help to prevent him taking over yours!
