Feeding Your Dogs

You can select rations for your dogs from the links on their individual pages. The best food for your dog depends on the results you are wanting to achieve. The dog food companies of ShowDog.com offer foods of varying qualities. Old Boy foods generally lower all numbers on dogs and are not good choices for any of your quality animals. Pet House foods are a little better and will usually maintain traits and raise condition slowly. Top Dog formulas will raise condition and will usually help raise traits slightly depending on the formula (Top Dog Formula for Coat will improve grooming, etc.). Super Duper dog foods will raise the condition of your dog and will maintain and may help raise grooming and muscle tone.

If you are a premium member, you can design rations tailored to the specific needs of your dogs. You are going to have to decide what foods will work best for your dogs and still remain within your budget.

Be sure to keep your adult dogs on adult formulas and your puppies on puppy formulas. If you accidentally put a dog on an incorrect food for his age, his condition could drop rapidly.

Default Rations for Puppies

If you like, you can select a default ration for your puppies by clicking on the appropriate link from your main kennel page. The formula you select will be the one your puppies are automatically placed on when they are born. If you do not select a formula, puppies will be placed on Old Boy when they are born and will lose condition every day if you do not put them on better food.
