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.

PostSubject: Puppy Diet   Tue May 28, 2013 12:20 pm

Hello, we will be bringing home our 8 week old husky this friday, and though i feel rather ready im still unsure HOW MUCH/HOW OFTEN a puppy husky should be fed? I know they tend to eat less than other breeds but im unsure if this applies to them while puppies. So how much is best? Also, I purchased blue wilderness puppy food. Is this a good brand? Thanks alot! Very Happy

How much, is going to depend on your puppy. Break up the feedings to about 3 per day but don't go by the recommended amounts on the bag. I'm pretty sure there are other posts about this topice somewhere here on the forum, but yes Blue Wilderness is a good brand, but I believe some people have found it to be too rich for their pups. It's going to be a trial and error for a little while, but you'll get it figured out.

Good luck and can't wait to see pics! Smile

Both my husky's do well on BB Wilderness. Balon the older one gets the adult salmon, and Loki gets the puppy chicken one. At first I don't think Loki liked it much but I stuck with it and he now devours it lol.

Make sure you get a small bag of whatever the breeder has been feeding so you can do a nice transition to avoid diarrhea. We've been having a heck of a time with Shadow and finding a brand of kibble that she can tolerate. Also, overfeeding will cause excess poop and diarrhea, so keep that in mind as you work out how much to feed. Wilderness is a great food and Ghost did really well when she was on it, but the only puppy formula is chicken based and there are a lot of dogs who don't tolerate chicken products well. Take a look at all the different food threads we have in case the Wilderness doesn't work out with you guys.

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"
