If you have recently welcomed a new puppy into your home please accept our congratulations.We recognise that getting things right throughout their growth is vital as this is one of the most intense and important stages in your new arrival’s life.

We want to support both you and your puppy as best we can throughout this rapidly changing period.

Project 48 hour

Giving your puppies and kittens the best start to a healthy life is your top priority, and ours too. That’s why we understand that making a strong, clear nutritional recommendation to your new owners is essential, ensuring a smooth transition to the new home and helping your puppies and kittens continue to thrive.

Our ‘puppy/kitten packs’ and recommendation process is changing to offer a clearer, simpler solution and a superior, quality introduction to our brand for your puppy or kitten owners.

From 4th September(*check with Dorcas on final decision on date), you will no longer be able to order our old puppy or kitten packs. Instead, you can request the new recommendation cards to give to your owners when they reserve a puppy or kitten.

Timeline and benefits in here

The basic needs of a young dog are simple and as follows:

  • Lots of sleep, without being disturbed. Choose a bed that is comfortable, easy to clean and strong and place it in a quiet area.
  • A clean supply of fresh water available at all times.
  • Regular, frequent meals of puppy food in the same place and at the same times each day to help establish a structure.

When it comes to food, it is a good idea to stick to your new puppy’s existing routine as much as possible for the first few days. It is a good idea to ask the breeder to supply you with a small amount of your companions’ current diet. Once those first few days are over and your companion is settled, you can start to introduce a ROYAL CANIN® diet (one designed for growth) very gradually, over 5-7 days, if you want to switch. Once your puppy has made the change, follow the feeding guides on the pack closely, as these will differ month by month as your puppy grows. Most puppies initially need at least 3 or 4 meals per day but the meal frequency can usually be reduced to 2 or 3 meals per day as they grow.
