5 Tips To Feeding Your Rottie Puppy

The Rottie puppy is a beauty.
Their strong, muscular body and black and brown coat command your attention. Beyond the surface of their stunning appearance, you want to keep proper care of their health, which in turn reflects how beautiful their coats radiate. We’ve compiled some 5 tips for you to incorporate when you’re feeding your Rottie puppy in Miami Florida.
Creature of Habit
For starters, dogs are a creature of habit. They thrive best when a routine is part of their daily schedule. This means it’s necessary to stick to a routine when it comes to feeding them. For adult dogs, the best time for meals is during breakfast time in the morning and dinnertime at night.
Proper Balance
Your Rottie puppy should always have a proper balance of the six basic food nutrients. They are carbohydrates, minerals, proteins, water, fats, and vitamins. Your Rottie puppy will display signs of deficiency if these essential nutrients are not available. They can and should be fed 2 or 3 times a day to prevent bloat. Give your Rottweiler a ration of 4 or 5 small meals a day until she’s about a year old.
Meals
As a general rule of thumb, Rottie puppy food is changed to adult food when he has reached almost 90 of its body weight. As with any dog, this shift in diet should be gradual and carefully executed, to allow your Rottweiler’s digestive system to get used to the change of food. The change should take place over a span of five to seven days. Below, follow one of the two guidelines to gradually changing your Rottie puppy’s diet:
You want to begin with mixing very small amounts of the new food to the old one, over a period of five to seven days.
OR
Try fasting your Rottie puppy for one meal. At the next meal, mix a quarter of the new food with a normal amount of old food. For the next five meals, increase the amount of the new dog food to one half of its normal consumption of the old dog food. Ultimately, you’ll fully and seamlessly transition from the old to new food.
Meat Lovers
Rottweilers are classified as carnivores, just like any other dogs. They absolutely love to consume meat. Should you decide to satisfy your Rottie puppy’s carnivorous desires, it is best to give him raw meat. Be sure that the meat is clean and not contaminated, to mitigate any resulting illnesses or diseases.
Proper Diet
You can always tell if you’re feeding your Rottie puppy a proper diet, based on their lustrous coat. Happy dogs are those that are active and have proper nutrition. Those without the aforementioned will get sick easily and disconnected from their surroundings. The Rottie puppy diet should include sufficient amounts of carbohydrate food sources like protein from meat, and cereals, together with salt, vegetables, animal oil, and other sources of vitamins and minerals.

We Have Hybrid Puppies Here!

Hybrid or “designer” dogs are the latest craze in the puppy industry and we applaud their varied mixes! They are often times a blend of the best of both doggy worlds, making for dogs with affable and desirable temperaments. Below are a few designer breeds that we feature and sell near Miami Florida. Cavachon You have surely seen these beauties, but perhaps you didn’t recognize the breed by name. We are formally introducing you to this beautiful breed! Cavachon puppies are a type of mixed breed or hybrid puppies that came from a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon Frise. They range from 12 to 16 inches in height and they can weigh between 10 to 20 pounds. Cavachon puppies come in a variety of coat colors, but the most common are peach and white. You’ll also see tri-colored, black and tan, and sable. Maltishi Maltishi puppies are the beautifully blended mix of the Maltese and Shih Tzu dogs. These sweet babies were originated and created to be small companions who don’t shed much and loves laps! There’s more to the eye with these little guys. Maltishi hybrid puppies are full of personality and not the kind that’s nerve-wracking. They are active, intelligent dogs with relatively quiet and laid back personalities. They love being around family and they’re quite content spending quality time with you. We will warn you that they can sometimes be a bit curious and mischievous so just be mindful! Walrus The Walrus dogs are hybrid puppies that are a cross between a Chinese Shar-Pei and a Basset Hound. His body is more of the Basset, but his skin is wrinkly and crinkly like the Shar-Pei, making him undeniably irresistible. They are technically a medium sized dog, as they range from 40 to 60 pounds. You may also see them referred to as a Ba-Shar.  Walrus puppies for sale are normally a show stopper and conversation starter because they’re still kinda rare, so some research studies are rare and sparse, too. What we know for sure is that they are an affectionate breed who match very well with dog owners who live inactive and somewhat sedentary lifestyles. Mini Goldendoodle The Miniature Goldendoodle is crossed between a Toy, Miniature, or small Standard Poodle and a Golden Retriever. They’ve been nicknamed the Mini Groodle, which is kinda funny! The name Goldendoodle originated in the United States during the early 1990’s. Mini Goldendoodle puppies are friendly, hypoallergenic, non-shedding dogs. They are extremely intelligent, having been mixed with two smart breeds, this is expected! Mini Goldendoodle puppies are also highly trainable, affectionate, and extremely social dogs. Because of their cheerful disposition, they are trustworthy and eager to please their owners. The Mini Goldendoodle puppy will thrive in any home environment, i.e. apartments or stand-alone houses, surely to be entertaining, and creating memories with your family for 10 – 14 years! Yorkipoo The Yorkipoo is a cross between the Yorkshire Terrier and a Toy or Miniature Poodle. The charming Yorkipoo stops everyone in their tracks upon first sight! They are always ready to play or entertain you. These hybrid puppies are gentle and loving dogs who can do well with children, but very young children are not recommended. That would increase the likelihood of injury if he’s improperly handled.  A Yorkipoo makes for an excellent companion for the elderly, as well.
