Feeding Guidelines

When introducing your dog to Bobtail® Nature’s Best™ from another dry dog food, allow about one week for the transition. Start by feeding a 30:70 blend, and each day increase the ratio of Bobtail® Nature’s Best™ to existing food until your dog’s diet is 100% Bobtail® Nature’s Best™.
