Diet & Nutrition

Keeping your Bestfriend German Shepherd Healthy by Providing the Right Nutrition.

  • Our favorite brand of dog food is Royal Canin. It works well for our puppies and our older dogs. Buy the age-specific type of food.
  • We feed our adult males and females with Royal Canin Maxi Adult dry food.
  • We feed our females in heat until the 3rd trimester with Royal Canin Professional HT 42D large dog dry food.
  • We feed our females from the end of gestation till the puppies are fully weaned with Royal Canin Professional Maxi Starter Mother and Baby dog.
  • Royal Canin provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation.

Our puppies get nursed from 1-4 weeks old.

We start feeding them from week 4-7 with moistened Royal Canin Professional Medium Starter Mother and Babydog, dry dog food mixed with Royal Canin starter can at intervals throughout the day.

From week 7-15 month, we feed them with Royal Canin Medium Puppy mixed with Junior Royal Canin can.

Whether or not you plan to continue with this food, you shouldn’t introduce a new food immediately as this could cause gastrointestinal problems; therefore 7 – 10 days is necessary to ease the transition from your dog’s current food. Each day simply feed a little less of the previous food and a few more of a new brand of dog food until you’re feeding a new brand of dog food exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.

We recommend that you keep your dog in ideal body condition and not allow your dog to become overweight. The exact amount of food your dog requires will need to be adjusted according to age, activity and environment.
