A lot of people on here feed a high quality 5 star kibble. Many of our members feed raw/or freeze dried raw. Raw food diet requires a lot of time and attention and will require you to prepare your dogs meals at home yourself. Freeze dried raw is easier and usually comes in the form of a patty that you can buy in the freezer or the dried and packaged version. I am new to freeze dried raw and just recently added it to my dogs diet, and I love it! Kibble is the most affordable route, it's the simplest way to feed, so long as you're feeding high quality. I am currently feeding Stella and Chewy's freeze dried, and I use it as a topper over Fromm kibble. A puppy should eat atleast 3 meals per day, not including snacks. My 8 lb pups were getting 1/4 cup twice daily and now they get a little less because I sprinkle their food with Stella's. My 4.4 lb baby who's a yr old gets less kibble but more freeze dried, about a patti per day, in addition to 1/8 cup of kibble twice daily. And my youngest pups diet is similar to my 1 yr olds and she gets a smaller meal a bit before bed and she's about 6 months old and is 2 lbs 8 oz. I think you need to do some research on foods, as well as the breed. There are lots of books to read, as well as info on the internet and of ourse the members of cp. Dogfoodadvisor.com and dogfoodanslysis.com are great sites to get accurate truth on dog food. Goodluck!

Tihehehehe! I still need to stop by my health pet store to get my Primal Starter kit lol. I forgot it when I went there Friday . And I went to my fave boutique wetnose Saturday, but they said they don't carry the kit. I will be feeding both Stella and Primal from now on. I like the idea of adding variety to the dogs diet 😊

I am from Australia where do I get it and what is it as I have never herd of it before?? My puppy eats 0.06 kgs of wet food which is I think 0.13Ibs (I'm sorry I'm not sure of Ibs) and maybe 0.02kgs of dry food ( u will probably have to look up kgs in Ibs Attachment 45898 I have uploaded a pic of the wet food she has and it is half of one of them I guess what she eats is enough ??

I'm not sure. You'd have to go to primal.com and email them. Do you have any pet supply stores near you or pet boutiques/shops that sell food?. Which part of Australia do you live in?
