I am getting the tripe from a packing company, they are actually right down the road from my house like 8 miles. I just found out they were there. I talked to the owner today and he said he will let me get as much as I want, that along with any organs or bones I want, and all the meat scraps. He is...

well, only the Chicken Instinct has that high of a protein level. The Rabbit/Salmon and Duck/Turkey have protein percentage in the mid 30's. I do have a Q about the Prairie. The ridiculous thing that sais on the feeding instructions on the bag is that I have to feed my pup (pups of his age and pregn...

Give your dog his food. If he does not chow down right away, then take the food away. Eventually, he'll figure out that he has to eat when dinner is served. No dog ever willingly starved to death. Thats what I do. My worry is that maybe I am doing wrong cuz he is still growing. I am weird like that...

Yeah, six months would be great. That's when I had my dog spayed and there were no complications. Its nice to do when they're a bit older, but you don't want her to go into her first heat so don't wait a minute longer than a month! would the same go for male pups too? Can I fix him before he hits 6...

I dunno if your pup really would classify under large breed dog. Mine is 4 months also, weighing at a bit over 36lbs and I still wouldnt feed him large breed formula. An all life stages one would be the safe alternative or a puppy one. We dont know how big our dogs are gonna be and all that calcium/...

At his age, I would generally feed twice a day. You could put water on his kibble to make it more appetizing, it's easy enough, and better for the dog anyway. He should also be getting some of his food in the form of training treats. I bet you'd find him more eager to eat if he's getting the kibble...

I agree with what everyone else said too. Those obedience classes are as important for you as they are for your puppy.

turning the nose up to his food = behavioral problem?

He started doing that like a month ago while he was on raw. He would go smell the Natures Variety premade and leave. But if I gave him the fresh ground up raw from the local farm, he would eat it. Now I switched him back to Natures Variety kibble and he does the same thing. Canned food he will swall...

Thanks for the replies! I've been looking for Merrick, Timberwolf and Canidae all day. I've been to 2 petco's and a petsmart...no luck. I think I might just have to stick with Royal Canin if I cant find anything better tomorrow. Anyone in the Los Angeles area know where I can find the above mention...
