Yes, that's right, some dogs prefer their food in tiny little pieces. The kibble makers worked this out a while ago and made all their small dog breed kibbles particularly small.
Exercise is only one part of a great routine. Diet and knowing when to give treats is another key part.
We find that a small breakfast after a morning walk is a great way to ensure that your dog has built up an appetite but also isn't hungry throughout the day.
Then the key is to ensure that in the lead up to the evening meal, there are absolutely no treats! Many dogs (particularly smaller breeds) will happily skip two or three meals if they think they can get more treats.
If keen to share some of your own food (which can be a fantastic source of nutrition) with your dog, we'd recommend putting it at the bottom of the regular food in the dog bowl. This way your dog will still associate eating a good dinner with going to the bowl and eating well.
SOME LIKE IT HOT (well, just gently warmed)
Some dogs aren't used to food coming cold fresh from the fridge, so just by warming the food for 20s in the microwave, you can take the edge off the food and also release some of the aromas to get them excited for their dinner.
Or maybe you have some of your own tips? We'd love to hear them.

We use high quality natural ingredients including human grade British farmed chicken. We gently cook the food on our farm at a low temperature and deliver it frozen fresh to your door. This means that all the goodness from the food makes it fresh to your dog's bowl.
Cooking the food is important to ensure that all dangerous bacteria are killed off and importantly cooked food is easier to digest. Unfortunately mass produced kibbles and tinned foods are cooked at very high temperatures and this kills off any good nutrition in the proteins and amino acids in the food.
We use DPD next day delivery service to ensure that the food arrives at your door frozen fresh.
Store the food in the freezer and defrost in the fridge. Each chub has a 5 day 'fridge life' once defrosted.
Absolutely! There are three primary reasons why Pets Love Fresh is better than raw food. Firstly, the ingredients going in to our food are higher quality and better balanced than raw foods. Secondly, gently cooked food is easier to digest for dogs ensuring that they are getting the most nutrition possible from the food. Thirdly, by cooking our food we are killing any dangerous bacteria and pathogens such as listeria or e-coli.
This really depends on your dog's medical condition. We know from our research that our food will help with allergies and intolerances as the high quality single protein source we use is easy to digest and we have used natural ingredients known to aid digestion. If unsure, request your vet to look at our 'FULL NUTRITIONAL INFO' section to see if any of the ingredients may cause a problem for your dog.
