Your dog does a lot for you. That wagging tail when you walk in the door, snuggles when you're down in the dumps, and the type of unconditional devotion that only a dog can give. So of course you want to spoil your pup with the finest food around! Alas, many conventional dog foods can contain questionable ingredients, like artificial preservatives and corn syrup, that might not be part of a nutritious diet for your pooch.

How much and how often you feed a dog depends on a few different factors. The American Kennel Club recommends feeding most dogs twice a day, about twelve hours apart — once in the morning and once in the evening should suffice. If you have a very young puppy, an older dog, or a dog with an illness, talk with your veterinarian about feeding schedules.
How much you feed your dog is heavily dependent on size and breed. Larger dogs, like mastiffs and Irish wolfhounds, need more food, and possibly more frequent feedings, than smaller breeds like Australian shepherds or chihuahuas. Puppies often require smaller portions multiple times a day until they reach a certain age.
Whether you choose wet or dry food for your dog is a matter of preference. Dry food has the potential to help with dental health, while wet food can supply extra hydration for thirsty dogs. If your dog has trouble drinking enough water or you live in a dry, hot area, wet food might be the best option for your canine.
Regardless of which type of food you feed your doggo, consider adding vitamins and supplements to their diet. There's a wide variety of supplements that can target concerns like joint issues and immunity support, or you can snag a multivitamin that's packed with omega fatty acids and essential nutrients. Don't know which one to pick? We rounded up a list of the best vitamins and supplements for your pet.
You love your dog, and your dog loves you — and treats. While it's not good for your pup to go overboard on the snacks, it's okay to give your furry buddy a few tasty dog treats everyday.
