Kathryn: We're getting a new puppy?
My family and I have had grown dogs before but we've never gotten any of them as puppies. We are going to possibly get a pug puppy. I was wondering what type of food do you recommend for them and until what age do I start giving them adult food? Feeding twice a day? Thanks.

Talking to your puppies breeder is a good place to start. They can tell you what they have been eating and when to switch them.
Answer by mrniceguy1456
puppies get puppy chow as much as they need. at 1 year or 18 months they get big dog food.
Congrats on the puppy!

Innova, Wellness, Canidae, Timberwolf Organics or Solid Gold. All of them are excellent foods with none of the cheap fillers like corn or rice gluten, sorghum, beet pulp or wheat that dogs can't digest.
Always get the puppy kind. They should be feed puppy food 4 times a day till there a year old. Then you need to gradually switch to adult food.

I suggest getting a book if it's your first puppy. All puppies are different, you will have to see what your dog will like. They have like cliff's notes for dogs at petsmart I know. Whatever you start feeding her, continue as long as she will eat it, most foods will have a weight chart to let you know how much and how often to feed. Their are also special dog foods for special breeds, this may be convenient and easier for you to try. Good luck!

Talk to the breeder but if they are feeding their dog cheap food then slowly switch to a premium that has no corn products, or cheap fillers. Foods such as blue buffalo (which is what I feed my lab) solid gold, and eagle pack are just a couple to choose from. Feed a puppy 3 times a day till the age of 6-9 months then twice a day after that. Depending on the food and breed you choose you can take some off of puppy food at 6 months of age.

i feed my dog purina. some people say its not the best dog food but i have had no problems with it. when your dog reaches about a year and a half is when you srart feeding it adult food. start out though by mixing the puppy food and the adult food together and slowly change to all adult food. i have a min dacshund and he only eats twice a day. if you feed small dogs too much they will become over weight and its really bad on smaller dogs especially on their joints. good luck with your new puppy.
