- Look for the term "complete and balanced" on your bag of dog food. This ensures it meets federal (FDA) and state regulatory standards.
- Most dogs can be fed twice a day. The Purina Farms performing dogs get a meal in the morning to give them the necessary energy they need throughout the day. Then, they get a meal in the evening to help them recover from a full day of activity.
- Choose a food that supports your dog's individual lifestyle. If your dog is an active dog, a food with added protein and glucosamine would be a good choice. But if your dog is a little overweight, a weight management formula might be the best option.
- Safe and healthy treats can be given to your dog throughout the day. If used in moderation, treats are a great way to reward your dog while training.
- Always use caution before giving your dog any human food. Some human foods like grapes, raisins, onions and, of course, chocolate can be harmful to your dog.
