At what age do our puppies start eating puppy food, do they ween off mum at their own pace or do we need to help that process
We typically recommend to start weaning the pups at about 4 weeks of age. The mom will normally start doing this when the pups start to erupt teeth. At about this time you can start offering a dry food with water added to make a gruel so the pups can more easily eat it.
