Another dog food question

Posted on October 9, 2011 at 3:01pm 6 Comments

My breeder was feeding the puppies Diamond Naturals small breed puppy food.  I was hoping to keep him on Diamond Naturals and also transition my Germans over to that food as well.  Question is, shouldn't I be feeding him Large Breed formula?  From everything I've read that seems to be the case. 

 

Also... anyone have recommendations on good puppy treats?

The hard job of picking one out!

Today we picked out our first Corgi.  I've named him Brian after being a long time fan of the Family Guy.  This will be my first small dog ever!  I am a stay at home mom to 2 gorgeous German Shepherds.  They've been wanting a small dog to call their own.  

 

I've read many blog posts on food and other things, but I'm so overwhelmed with trying to find out about a breed that I know nothing about... other than I've always wanted one because they are cute.  SO...  after much…

I hear that's a good dog food, and it's smart to stick with the food your breeder is using if you can as food transitions are a pain with puppies. I read this book (from Amazon) before I brought Crumpet home. I found it useful as there are some breed-specific tips for Corgi owners. Best of luck with Brian. May you guys have many happy years together!

I should mention as well that a very tiny percentage of dogs have digestive issues with grains. Natural Balance as well as Earthborn holistic dog food offer a grain free diet.

Tip on feeding costs:
There's a chart on the back of dog food bags that tells you how much of said food needs to go inside your dog based on weight and age. It's a rough estimate, but it has been accurate for Crumpet. Now, some foods are less compact and require larger quantities as in the case of Earthborn (requires more) versus Innova (less). So bring a calculator to the pet store and do the math: You can't just look at sticker price pound for pound.

Tip on treats:

Corgis are one of the worst breeds when it comes to weight problems. This is not the corgi's fault but the owner's! They are great beggars, but unfortunately, being long-backed dogs the extra weight causes serious back and hip problems beyond what it would already do to a less elongated canine. Do not buy biscuits or any of that baked crap as it has corn syrup and all kinds of nasty ingredients that are not appropriate for dogs. Try lean 100% bison meat bison bites as training treats or better yet, the dog's own dog food. Puppies do not like variation and change in diet so try to keep it simple and do not feed them people food!! That will make them fat real quick and also turn them into dinner-time whiners.

Regarding What to Feed Brian:
I feed Crumpet Innova Puppy food (dry), which is one of the less expensive truly natural (noncrap) foods out there where the first ingredient is meat meal. [If your dog turns out to have dairy allergies - almost no corgis do, as it is rare among dogs - then there are other options out there that are dairy free (Natural Balance is one).] Make sure to feed your dog puppy food for the first year as it has more fat and protein to help them grow healthy and strong, and puppy food has smaller pieces. Until 6 months or so, Brian will have a lot of baby teeth so big pieces will not be properly chewed and can cause digestion problems.

I agree, stay away from Iams, Purina, Science Diet -- all that cheap crap will cut your dog's lifespan short. Studies have shown as much... too tired to link but you can google it.

Breeders are often well networked, I recognized his pictures.  I knew that Tracy had a litter and I had seen pictures of them.
