Puppies may start nibbling around 4-5 weeks of age. You may feed Native Puppy dry, but moistening may enhance acceptance. If desired, self-feeding may be started at any age after weaning. If puppies are not self feeding, but on a schedule, feed them 3 times per day up to 6 months of age and 2 times per day from 6 months to 1 year of age. Provide plenty of fresh water.
