How Much to Feed

For dogs 12 months and over it is recommended to feed between 2-3% of your dogs ideal body weight.

For Puppies under 12 months it is advised to feed a higher percentage of food, to aid with their little growing bones.

1-2 Months – 10% (Breeder should use this amount for weaning pup onto raw)

2-3 Months 9% (If you have just brought pup home from Mum then we suggest starting here if your pup is 8 weeks old)

3-4 Months 8%

4-6 Months 6%

6-9 Months 4%

9-12 Months 3%

Please note that this amount will change based on the pups weight also increasing.
