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.
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
Amount recommended above are total daily amounts.
Less Active: Less than 30 mins exercise per day
Active: 30 – 60 mins exercise per day
Highly Active: Over 60 mins exercise per day
|Body Weight||Less Active||Active||Highly Active|
We recommend adult dogs are given 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 dog’s individual needs. If your dog appears overweight, you may need to feed slightly less than the guideline amount. Similarly, if your dog appears underweight, you may need to feed slightly more.
- Monitor your dog’s condition and adjust the feeding amount until the correct bodyweight is achieved.
- 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 small breeds when they are approximately 10 years old and older. From this age onwards, your dog is likely to have lower energy requirements and will require a diet tailored towards senior dogs.
