    Default Looking for some advice! New Bully owner!

    Hello everyone! My name is Joe, and I recently added "Riley" to our family!

    I was wondering what food I should transition her onto? Currently the breeder gave me "Nutri Source" I was thinking of switching to Blue Buffalo Puppy.. She is 10 weeks old!

    Also, are there any treats that y'all may or may not recommend? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!

    Heres a picture of my baby on the way home!

    Riley is a cutie! Poke around this section of the message board and you will find endless discussions about food! Plenty of quality food out there. Grain free is the way to go. We currently feed our bully Fromms Pork and Peas. Good luck

    to the site. Food is going to be some trial and error to find what is best for your baby. Many members have had great success using the Fromm's 4 Star Grain free line of foods myself included, but there are other great foods out there as well. As for treats try to stay as healthy as you can buy using fruits and frozen veggies to plain yogurt and kefir. As always we want to stay away from rawhides and such for our babies as they are choking hazards so toys wise stick to things for powerful chewers like Kong and Nylabone products.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    to EBN! Riley is adorable I would highly recommend Fromm Puppy in the pink bag, but there are some other great foods out there. Make sure and check out our Dog Food Ratings Page for a listing of foods by star rating and details on how to read dog food labels. Remember to transition slowly as to not upset Riley's sensitive tummy. As mentioned above, frozen veggies make great treats, as well as peanut butter stuffed Kongs.

    Can't wait to see more pics of Riley!!

    Thanks everyone! My dog is on Chicken Nutri Source, she's doing well and doesn't seem to have allergies (fingers crossed) do you think I should slowly switch onto BB Wilderness?

    Is this a Puppy Formula?

    If you are currently feeding the Nutri Source Chicken & Rice Puppy (this is the only Nutri Source puppy chicken I could locate) , which is only a 3 Star Food, I would probably switch. Blue Wilderness is a 6 Star Food. I myself have no experience with with Blue, but many members seem to have had good luck with it. If you do decide to switch, remember to do a slow transition to the new food.

    I had great results feeding my Ruckus Fromm Puppy Gold in the pink bag. Once I transitioned him to adult food, I started with the From Adult Gold and at first he ate it fine, but started getting picky. I switched him to Fromm Beef Frittata and he loves it. That being said, all bullies are different. For treats I'm a big fan of the Wellness pure rewards grain free jerky. When Ruckus was a small puppy some of the crunchier treats were too much for him to handle. One thing I did that I highly recommend is I reserved one type of his favorite treats just for using as a reward for going potty outisde and that worked wonders -- he was house trained at quite an early age.

    Hello,

    My pup Rocky is 10 weeks old too. When I got him he had terrible diarrhoea and I think it was because of the food he had been given.

    My vet suggested Royal Canin Bulldog Jnr food which is specifically designed for the breed. Rocky is thriving on it and his diarrhoea is a thing of the past after only a few days! I'm not sure if this feed is only available in the UK though. Its pricey but well worth it!
