General Dog Care

Any home can benefit from having a dog, but whether you’re a seasoned pet parent or a first-time adopter, it’s crucial to put your dog’s health and happiness first. The following advice is beneficial for all dog owners.

And keep in mind: If you’re thinking about getting a new dog, please consider adoption before getting one. We invite you to look through our list of dogs that are available for adoption in your neighbourhood or go to our Find a Shelter page to begin your search.


Eight to twelve week old puppies require four meals per day.
Puppies aged three to six months should receive three meals per day.
Give puppies two meals per day between the ages of six and one.
Once your dog turns one, one meal a day is typically sufficient.
Two smaller meals are preferable for some dogs, such as larger breeds or those who are prone to bloat.
For adult dogs, premium-quality dry food offers a diet that is well-balanced and can be combined with water, broth, or canned food. Cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, or fruits and vegetables may be favourites of your dog’s, but they shouldn’t make up more than 10% of his daily food intake.

Puppies should consume premium, name-brand puppy food (large breed puppy foods for large breeds). However, please limit “people food” as it can lead to vitamin and mineral deficiencies, issues with the bones and teeth, and obesity. It can also result in problems with the bones and teeth. Always have access to clean, fresh water, and wash your food and water dishes frequently.
