  1. We just picked up a Black Lab puppy yesterday, she was born May 4th, so she is 9 weeks old. I was wondering whether we could bathe her yet and if there is a certain shampoo recommended. Or wether there it is not advised to do so yet. Any other tips and clues you would like to add would be helpful too as this is our first lab puppy weve had. Thank you.

  2. My lab is 2.5 yrs old just hand puppies on mother’s day there 2.5 weeks old when do I intro deuce them to puppy food and what kind should it be the can or dry

  3. Can anyone advise a dog novice. We have a 12 month old (last week) fox red labrador. We need to know if he is now officially classed as an adult dog and how we should go about feeding him. He is currently on 1 X Nutriment 1400gm chubb (raw food diet) a day but we are unsure whether to cut it down now or not. He was neutered about 5 weeks ago, so this may make a difference. Any help would be gratefully appreciated, Lorraine and Mark
