If you have a medium-sized or large dog, they are considered an adult from around 12 months. Also, divide their food into two meals a day.
Reminder! It is important to divide the daily recommended amount of food (indicated on the pack) into two meals a day, which should not be immediately before or after intense exercise.

Want to give your dog a different flavoured food? It's very simple! We recommend introducing it slowly. That is to say, mix the new flavour with your dog's regular flavour of food and, each day, add in a bit more of the new food and less of the other. This way, they’ll get used to it bit by bit and in the end, they’ll like enjoy it just as much, if not more, as their usual food!
Your dog loves routine! So they will thank you for ensuring their food and water are always placed in the same location. How should you choose an appropriate place? It must be a quiet, calm area where your dog feels comfortable and relaxed.
No problem! You can feed them at the same time and in separate rooms in order to ensure a calm, relaxed environment.
