If you’ve recently adopted a golden retriever puppy, congratulations! This breed is known for its playful personality and friendly demeanor. One of the most important aspects of raising a healthy and happy golden retriever puppy is making sure they are getting the right amount of food. Let’s dive into what you need to know about feeding your pup.


Amount of Food Per Day
Golden retrievers require more food per day than other breeds because they are larger dogs. As a general rule of thumb, you should feed your pup two to three meals per day, depending on their age and size. For puppies between six and ten weeks old, feed them four meals a day; for puppies between eleven weeks and six months old, feed them three meals a day; and for puppies older than six months, feed them two meals per day.


It can be difficult to measure the exact amount of food your pup needs since each dog is different for example, some may require more or less food depending on their activity level or metabolism so it’s best to check with your vet first before creating a meal plan for your pup. Additionally, you should always make sure that there is plenty of fresh water available at all times.
