Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I feed Taste of the Wild High Prairie all-stages to my 9-week-old husky. Apart from the bad gas he seems to be thriving on it. However, I'm not sure if I'm feeding him the right amount. He eats 3 meals a day, 1.5 cups total. I was wondering how much you feed yours on the same food? Thanks!

Depends on the activity level imo. I feed Thane 1 cup or Orijen puppy food, 3 times a day. He gets about 3 walks a-day plus playtime.

When Cato was 10 weeks, we were feeding 3 cups a day, spread into 3 feedings. That was on TOTW.

Rambo hasn't had his first walk yet. I let him out in the front yard to play once but decided that it was too dangerous for a puppy who had only had his first series of shots. He's pretty active inside the house though. He doesn't seem to be losing weigh so I guess I'll just add another cup and see how it goes. Thanks!

I only fed Rogue 1 1/2 cups a day until she was 6 months, then she got 1 cup total a day since and she's got the healthiest little figure ever.

If you want to get rid of the bad gas, try the Salmon TOTW instead. I put mine on High Prairie and had the same bad gas issues. Based off of advice from this forum, I switched them to the Salmon and the gas went away completely.

Same for us. Ghost was peeling paint off the walls the few days we had her on High Prairie, and the problem went away immediately when we switched to Pacific Stream.

And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

She eats Earthborn (red meat formula) and venison Ziwipeak. Smile I only feed the Ziwipeak to add extra protein, Earthborn alone made it very nice. She gets raw a few times too but I only recently put that back in her diet.
