Nutrition plays a huge part in the development, health and wellbeing of your dogs and your puppies. As a breeder, we set the stage for what our pups are weaned onto, but it goes beyond that.
As a dog breeder, your new puppy owners will look to you for guidance on the best food to feed their puppies, so it’s important to think carefully about which food you choose and not just be led by which dog food company gives you the best free puppy packs!
My 100% go-to for my own dogs, my puppies and what I recommend to my new puppy owners is Fish4Dogs. It’s packed with vitamins, nutritionally balanced ingredients for pups and bitches, plus it’s gentle on sensitive tummies.
So I thought I’d talk to Jill from Fish4Dogs to tell you more about their puppy food (and their breeder club). Plus share my own thoughts and feelings after having fed Fish4Dogs for many, many years!
Why fish for dogs?
I guess the first question you may have, is why fish? Traditionally, we look to other protein sources for our dogs – but with huge surges in food intolerances and allergies, I believe fish is a much better option.
Notwithstanding any genetics that may influence your litters responses to certain foods and proteins – fish is an amazing source of Omega rich fatty acids. Our dogs need both omega 3 and 6 – and Fish4Dogs helps you strike the right balance.
Growing puppies need more DHA rich omega-3s than adult dogs.
Jill explains, “the Omega oils in our puppy food aid not only coat condition but eye health and cognitive function too, meaning your puppies will stand out as super healthy looking pups. “
Fish is naturally rich in omega-3 which is really important for puppies. Growing puppies need more DHA rich Omega 3s than adult dogs to aid healthy development and function.
Benefits of feeding fish to puppies
- Supports healthy brain and eye development
- Promotes healthy coat and skin
- Helps bone and joint development
- Reduces inflammation & aids mobility
- Assists the operation of brain cell membranes
In addition to these benefits, the ingredients in Fish4Dogs recipes are easily digestible, which is particularly important as our young pups’ digestive systems are still developing.
No Grains, No Fillers, No Additives
Fish4Dogs choose potato and sweet potato as low sensitivity carbohydrate sources rather than rice and grains – which gives the food a lower glycaemic index. These ingredients help keep your puppies tums fuller for longer, which not only keeps them happy but helps support learning. Happy gut – happy brain!
Preventing food intolerances and allergies
Fish4Dogs Finest Complete Puppy Food is grain-free and made with limited ingredients. There’s no chicken, lamb, beef, or pork as these proteins are often responsible for causing intolerances in many dogs.
It’s perfect for puppies’ sensitive digestion, and available in two kibble sizes – there’s a bite size for every breed.

Supporting your new puppy owners
Fish4Dogs also have a Puppy Club, which you can invite your new owners into free of charge. The Puppy Club gives your owner’s 10% of the most popular FIsh4Dogs recipes and treats which can help encourage them to continue feeding their puppy a good quality food – long after they leave you for their new home.
When you wave off your puppies to their new families, you may worry about your pups adjusting to their new surroundings, new canine siblings and possibly a new diet.
This is where the free of charge puppy packs from Fish4Dogs are a blessing, the reassurance of knowing your pup has headed off to their new home with a good quality food that they are already used to is priceless.
Jill’s a dog breeder too….
When dealing with Fish4Dogs, it’s so clear that they understand our needs, wants and worries as breeders. This is because Jill is a breeder herself, so she gets it!
Jill says, “I have four of my own dogs and breed my own litters of puppies for both working and pet homes. I am always so proud to show off my puppies with their beautiful shiny coats, bright eyes and quick brains and I know that all this is because of feeding Omega rich, nutritionally balanced food to not just mums and their pups but to my stud dog too.
I always say my dogs are so bright and intelligent from such a young age because their tummies are so happy – gut health is scientifically proven to aid brain development and I get to see that for myself every day.”
