    Question New pup and I'm a first time owner

    I have been doing as much research as I can, and I understand every bully is different, but can anyone give me an idea on how much to feed my pup when I bring him home? I am so overwhelmed on what foods to get and with some being quite pricey, I want something healthy and won't kill my bank account. I have also seen some people mention they mix the dry food with yogurt and a little water. Is this an additional step to help with gas or just a taste/texture thing?

    Thanks in advance!

    A teaspoon of yogurt every morning will definitely help with the gas issue. There are lots of great puppy line food out there. This list will show you the best and some of the garbage out there.English Bulldog News Forums - Dog Food Ratings at English Bulldog News

    Whatever you do feed him 3 times a day a cup each time and you can always mix a little warm water into it at first.

    Congrats on the new baby and welcome. I think you have a good starting point. The good thing is that when you feed a high quality, grain free food, you save a ton on vets bills and they do actually eat less than if it were with one of the cheaper foods with fillers. I usually give mine a tablespoon of plain yogurt with some fruits with a bit of kibble for breakfast. Then with their dinner I put in some veggies, some wet or a raw medallion in with their dry food. Just remember that these stinkers will eat their weight in food if you let them. They love to feign hunger. If you are overfeeding you will find the poo being squishy. Good Luck!

    You can also check out the food ratings on Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor It's a great place to start looking at better quality dog foods...

    I would bring him home with what the breeder has him on to avoid any upset stomach. Then start a slow transitioning process on the food you choose (about 2 weeks). Follow the amount guidelines on the bag, which usually goes by age/weight. This will give you a starting point and you can increase or decrease. Careful, cause most bullies show signs of 24/7 hunger!
