  1. Hi,
    I have a 8 weeks old puppy. He loves his Beta puppy food. Currently I am giving him it dry as suggested by breeder. Just wanted to check whether it is correct way or should I moist the kibble before feeding him.
    I have noticed that he drinks quite a lot of water specially after his meals.

    Many Thanks!!

  2. Hi, looking for some advice. My lab puppy is just over 5 months old and has had Skinners puppy lamb and rice since we got her. She has been really good on it and it suits her. However, it looks like they have changed things slightly and their food is all suited towards working dogs. She’s approaching 6 months so I wondered if anyone had any advice on what is similar to skinners but might be better for her now she’s getting a little older? She is not a working dog so I don’t want her to be eating the wrong food. Any thoughts? Thanks xx

  3. Is there a list of dog foods that you can find at a feed store to feed my 18 month old black lab? All I have seen is getting the food through amazon. Thanks

  4. Hi, i have a 3 month old Lab, hes stunning and as most owners I want the best for him without the price tag, I have bought him Carnilove Puppy to try out, have you heard of this/tired this? my only concern at the moment is how little i need to feed him, hes on beta puppy now and the amount i need to feed on Carnilove is more than half so i’m worried he will still be hungry?

    many thanks

    • I give my 20 month old since i had her from 12weeks old royal canine labrafor food and she absolutely loves it yes its pricey but what is money when you see your dog smiling eating her food

    • My Puppy is on Natures Way Puppy (60% Chicken). My Adult is on Natures Way Lamb (50%) & my 12 year old is on Natures Way Senior with joint aid. Fantastic food. Small waste product is the key to knowing it is good

    • I feed my 6 months old yellow lab N&D Chicken and Pomegranate low grain, puppy. It has lots of protein, fruits and vitamins, and is low grain food which means it helps the digestive system better.

  5. My puppy is 10 weeks old and is a sweetheart. I need to know how much and how often to feed him. I read somewhere that he should be getting 9oz a day divided among 4 feelings. That does not seem to be enough food to me. He seems hungry.

  6. mine is 2 months old puppy. Its bitting every thing , so can i hit him to say not to bit.. is there any problem hitting the puppy always.

    • Please remember a puppy is exactly that a puppy, just like a baby. They don’t know any better and will bite everything they can and around their site. labs are especially known to be chewers. It is wrong to hit them all the time because they don’t know and they are teething. The best thing to do is always have plenty of chewable dog bones for him to chew. (Like nylabones). The dog needs to be provided plenty of acceptable toys and bones to chew on, so you must provide that. Also it is up to you to remove anything you don’t want chewed and watch your puppy. In time (but a long time) the puppy will grow out of the chewing stage some.

    • is it ok to feed my 15 month old lab dry food that includes wheat and wholegrain cereal. meat products are the main ingredient.?
      he recently had hot spots , blisters that he scrathes, and the vet had to shave and treat him with cream and pills. a web site said it was caused by wheat in his food. vet says caused by not drying him after a wash or swimming.
