Recommendations, instructions and frequently asked questions
The calculation of the feed ration is calculated as the amount of energy to maintain vital functions per one kg of weight, and this value is multiplied by the dog's load coefficient, which varies according to physical activity.
It always depends on the owner's conditions and time, but in the case of teenagers, adults and older dogs, it is ideal to feed twice a day.
The dog should have its own place where it can eat its food in peace. From a digestive point of view, it is certainly not ideal for a dog to run in from a walk and go eat. The same applies to physical activity after a meal. It is always true that the dog should have plenty of rest before and after eating. If you are going to do more physical activity with your dog, make sure that he does not eat later than 2 hours in advance and ensure that he drinks enough fluids.
If these are general feeding instructions that cannot take into account the dog's individual energy expenditure, it is always necessary, and sometimes even very radically, to adjust the feed dose according to such needs.In the case of our feeding guide, which takes into account the dog's individual load, we can say that the feeding dose is very accurate. However, giving supplements or treats also contributes to the physical condition of each dog. Therefore, it is still necessary to carefully monitor your dog and, in the event that he loses weight or gains weight, adjust the feeding dose.
