There are two schools of thought here and there is no correct answer. Taking it away after meal time might train him to eat at the designated time, but it may also result in him not eating the full quantity that you want him to eat.
Dog owners are inclined to change food brands if their dog goes off their food. This usually results in their dog enthusiastically eating the new food for a couple of days purely because it is new and interesting, then reverting to being less keen very quickly. Changing between brands can also upset his tummy and digestive system causing diarrhoea. It is not good to change foods regularly. Our advice is that you find a brand and recipe that you are happy with nutritionally and your dog thrives on – then try to stick with it. Switching between different recipes of the same brand can be a good way to give your dog some variety if he needs encouragement to eat. This is usually uneventful and doesn’t tend to cause any tummy upsets.
Adding a little water can be useful particularly if you are trying to slow down the speed your dog is eating at, but is not usually required.
No, once your puppy is weaned and you have brought him home, he does not need milk, just his puppy food. Cows’ milk is not safe for puppies or dogs to drink.
Providing he is eating his meal uneventfully and without choking, this is not a problem. If you are concerned he is eating too quickly and is choking, you can try adding a little water to his food to try and slow down the speed at which he eats.
Puppy recipes are formulated specifically for puppies up to 12 months of age and adult recipes are formulated specifically for dogs over 12 months of age, so we do not recommend feeding puppy food to adult dogs or adult recipes to puppies.
