  • Feed about ¼ cup (a handful) 3 times a day with water for 8 week pups,  increase weekly as it grows
  • USE (slower growth) Puppy food until it reaches 2 years old. Usually has 10-12% fat and 26-28% protein.
  • Feeding the puppy by hand makes it friendly around food – kids around the food bowl are viewed as good.
  • Feeding the puppy by hand helps establish you as top dog and leader of the pack
  • Pot bellies are bad for hips – cut back on the amount of food.
  • It takes 4-5 hours to process food. Feeding after 8 PM means you will be up at 2-3 AM and makes house breaking more difficult. Until the puppy is about 5 months old, it will not have full control of its body functions.
  • Boykins are usually soft dogs, meaning a harsh word or loud shout “NO” will be understood. More than that may make the dog afraid.
  • Punishing the puppy for accidents after the act is a waste of time as the puppy does not relate the punishment and the act. A loud “NO” if it is caught in the act is sufficient, clap the hands, or shake a can containing coins to startle puppy.
  • Hip dysplasia is partially hereditary and partially environment. Make the environment friendly for 2 years. No pot bellies. No stair climbing when puppy is small. No long walks. No running with bicycles. Chasing balls is OK – be sensible – just don’t push the puppy’s capabilities.
  • Leaving puppy alone for long periods causes emotional anxiety for a pack animal.  Get a sitter!!!
