Feeding the raw diet

GlenRoslin adults and puppies are fed a 100% natural raw diet. At 3 weeks of age, the puppies are introduced to a raw chicken/turkey neck to play with and suck on and this is a particularly lovely time to watch them. Once they are fully weaned from mum, they are fed a 100% natural raw diet, a species appropriate diet for the carnivore the dog is. This feeding program for puppy owners can be as easy as opening a can of dog food but is better for the all-round health and well being of the puppy and ultimately the adult dog it will become. We do not feed any grains as grains are one of the leading causes of skin allergies. Suggested reading and websites to visit while waiting on your Westie/Scottie concerning the diet are:
