    DefaultQuestion about puppy food

    What kind (brand, formula, etc) do you use for your puppies? When we had our cocker spaniel when I was a kid mom used Purina dog show. I have a cat (she was a stray and has been with me ever since) and use Purina cat chow. So I was wondering what your recommendations are. I know the breeder will also give me some recommendations as well.

    From what I hear... lots of people on this forum use a bit of fish each week to give the dogs the shiny coat. I was just about to post about this in Nutrition forum.

    Science Diet for us...I think she would eat anything though. This was recommended by her vet (along with the more expensive "sponsored" brand ;D)

    Thanks! that's very nice. Our breeder wants to use him as a stud dog because he says he looks like he is going to be the best dog in the litter. We are not sure about this I just wanted a lovely pet / companion. Anyway we still have 3 months to decide.

    Tasman's mom...

    Might want to ask about that in Lab Chat... I've heard that a males who aren't neutered and actually get a chance to breed can completely change in personality. After hearing that, even IF Ender was a good prospect for breeding, I wouldn't want to deal with all that.

    That's exactly why I am not sure, they seem to get a chip on their shoulder because normally only the TOP-DOG is allowed for breeding within a pack. I have talked to the breeder and we have decided he is going to have a final look at home at 6 months and it's obviously up to us after that. Hopefully he says no anyway and the "problem" is solved.
