Your dog is unique and his feeding requirements will vary with his age, activity and environment. That’s why we suggest starting with the guides below, and then monitoring his weight and adjusting portions as needed.
All recommended feeding amounts are in grams per day.
Ideally feed your adult dog in two feeds per day rather than just one, especially for large breeds. However, be vigilant with the amount of food you give them.
Feed puppies from 6 weeks onwards, 3 times per day until the age of 6 months, then reduce to twice per day.
We recommend you try to feed your dog at the same time each day.
Please ensure a supply of fresh drinking water at all times
|1-3 Mths||4-8 Mths||9-12 Mths|
Amounts recommended above are total daily amounts:
We recommend puppies 1-6 months are given a minimum of three feeds per day. Provide one third in morning, one third at lunch, one third in evening. We recommend puppies 6-12 months are given a minimum of two feeds per day. Provide half in morning, and half in evening.
Pour the correct amount of Leader into your dog’s bowl. Leader may be fed either wet or dry. If feeding wet, use 1 part water to 2 parts feed. Use lukewarm (not boiling) water. Feed should be fed within 30 minutes of preparation if fed wet.
Amounts provided in this chart are recommended guidelines and should be adjusted depending on your puppies individual needs. If your puppy appears overweight, you may need to feed slightly less than the guideline amount.
Similarly, if your puppy appears underweight, you may need to feed slightly more. Monitor your puppies bodyweight regularly and adjust the feeding amount as required.
Always ensure your dog has a plentiful supply of fresh water.
Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
This food is recommended for puppies until they are approximately 12 months old. At this age, your dog is fully developed and requires a balanced diet tailored towards adult dogs.
Natural Dog Nutrition
The Leader range of food offers something for every dog. Each product is tailored according to a dog’s size, age and individual needs. Using natural Irish ingredients, Leader feeds cater to dogs with sensitive tummies, those who need to watch their weight and those who need extra protein and omega 3 oils.
We understand that larger dogs need extra care for their joints, and smaller dogs need a kibble size they can manage easily. Whatever your dogs’ needs are, you can find a Leader food that’s just right as well as a healthy range of treats to supplement their delicious diet.
