Young German Shepherd puppies have an extremely high energy requirement.  We, at Lundborg-Land German Shepherd Kennels feed Nutri Source Large Breed Puppy, Chicken & Rice Dog Food  with  about 1-2 teaspoons of raw beef, turkey, chicken or a good quality canned dog food to the mixture. (not all at the same time) You can also add  yogurt if you like. You can rotate these choices. Please, please increase food as puppy grows. We feed two times a day, morning and night until the puppy reaches 5-6 months of age, then we switch the dog food to the adult formula and then feed only once a day.  Always keep fresh water available at all times for your new puppy.  No rawhide treats or greenies. Only provide “natural” ingredient treats.  Please nothing made is China .  Read the labels please.

Lundborg-Land German Shepherd Kennels recommend and feed all of our German Shepherd adult dogs Nutri Source Adult Dog Food  . We do not add any vitamin supplements as we feel everything has already been added for the German Shepherd needs for good skin, health and nutrition.

We feed once a day for Adults and 2 times a day for Puppies, and supply clean, fresh water at all times. If you have any questions regarding the feeding schedule of your Lundborg-Land German Shepherd puppy or dog, please call us at (951) 443-4318.
