Hi Nicole,

Congratulations on your new puppy!

You’ll have to slowly transition your pup from the food the breeder is feeding so start with that and then slowly cut down that food while introducing the new food in small quantities.

If you are wanting to feed kibble I suggest finding a puppy kibble that is grain free and contains real meat not filler or “meal”. I mix a grain free kibble with BARF raw food that I get from the freezer section of the pet store.

You can also feed fresh mince with some cooked veg like pumpkin, sweet potato etc (not canned).

Let me know how you go and please send a pic!

Thanks,
Elise

Puppy Food – Grain Free

I have found some grain free puppy food* that may be suitable for you on Amazon. I haven’t used these specific brands as I am not based in the U.S. so please do your own research but from what I can see these brands don’t use fillers or ‘meal’ so if home made food isn’t an option these could work well for your puppy.

Do you have any tips for Nicole? What did you feed your pup? Share in the comments below.

I laid eyes on my first Boston Terrier whilst living in a rustic cabin in Canada and was immediately smitten. I created Boston Terriers Rock for people like myself who love the unique style and character of Boston Terriers so we can connect and share our knowledge, experience and fun of our quirky Bostons.
