URBAN WOLF has evolved to reach the pinnacle of dog foods.
Urban Wolf Grain-Free Dietary Base Mix is ideal for all breeds of dogs - from toys to giants. Urban Wolf is also perfect for puppies. It is the best diet to start your puppy on, please use Balancer with Urban Wolf if you are feeding a puppy.
Cooked or Raw Meat?
This is a very important issue. Urban Wolf recommends that all dogs start with precooked meat unless your dog is used to eating a raw diet. Once you have started with the precooked meat, Urban Wolf recommends that you slowly begin to transition to raw meat after a few months (if you wish to feed raw). If you are unsure if your dog should be eating raw meat, please consult your ask your Vet to determine if a raw diet is right for your dog.
The reason this is important is that some dogs that have only ever eaten commercial kibble and thus can have a difficult time digesting raw meat so please have compassion for your pet & PRE-COOK your meat. When using cooked meat with Urban Wolf you dog will not lose any of the benefits of this superb diet (*make sure you add all the cooking juices to the food).
Urban Wolf is an excellent diet choice for your new or older puppy. Suitable for all breed, all size, all age puppies, Urban Wolf has been used by breeders and dog owners for over a decade. Urban Wolf has been specifically designed to provide the nutritional benefits needed for all dogs, no matter how small or large of a breed. Unlike commercial foods, Urban Wolf allows your large or giant breed puppy to grow gradually over the first year which in turn allows the joints to form, bones to calcify and the tendons and ligaments to strengthen. Whereas commercial may cause your puppy to grow too fast or some of the 'large breed' puppy kibble have slower growth but the puppies get fat. When dealing with growing puppies NOTHING compares to a well balanced whole food diet designed for growing youngsters. This is what Urban Wolf with the Balancer does.
To give your puppy the best start, it's essential to include our Urban Wolf 'Balancer' with your Urban Wolf. To prepare your puppy's food, simply follow the instructions on the Urban Wolf package and add 1 tbsp of 'Balancer' per cup of Urban Wolf dry mix. Combine all the ingredients and feed. Please use the Balancer for the first 12 months.
The following are only guidelines. Some dogs will eat more, some less. Please use these guidelines as a starting poing and increase or decrease as necessary.
FEEDING GUIDELINES Daily Portions - Prepared Food:
Based on Adult Dogs' Ideal Weight & DEPENDS ON amount of oil used in recipe:
Feed 2x's adult portions by puppy weight increasing as puppy grows. After teething (5-6 months) you will not need to increase portions, your puppy will start eating a more predictable amount of daily food.
When weaning babies, puree prepared Urban Wolf (made with with precooked meat & Balancer with a little water and feed as gruel. You do not need to feed milk or pablum, Balancer contains goat milk so your puppies will be able to digest this food very easily and they will wean in no time without digestive confusion or upset.
*** When your dog or puppy first starts on Urban Wolf they will need more food for the first 2 months because their body is craving the good nutrition that their new diet is supplying. After the first 60 days (or so) they will settle into a more predictable daily amount, usually it's approx. 20% less than when they started. Your dog may start leaving some of his food.
If this happens and your dog is otherwise happy and normal*, simply cut back on his next meal by the amount they leave behind and feed them a little less from then on.
(*please do not confuse leaving food with anorexia or illness. If your dog is leaving food and is not acting normally, please consult your Vet as they may have an underlying health issue.)
If your dog starts gaining or losing weight, decrease or increase portions slightly until they are at the optimal weight.
