Hi JaCustomer,

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is Jane. I have been involved professionally with dogs in the healthcare and behavioral fields for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a Vet Assistant and Behaviorist and have extensive experience in dog reproduction, as a breeder, for even longer than that.. Canine behavioral issues and training are also my specialties. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

Can I ask what kind of information you are looking for about feeding your goldendoodle?

How old is Theodore?

Is he neutered?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
He will be 7 months on Jan 18th 2018 he is not yet neutered. We haven’t quite made up our mind yet! All I do is research and research on the five star dog food brands. But, it’s a never ending battle I feel. I would like to feed him raw but I don’t want to actually do legit raw. I like the idea of the freeze dried raw. I’m not sure if you’re familiar with that at all? Currently I am feeding him Natures Varity Instinct... kibble+freeze dried raw and he absolutely adores it. I’m feeding him “large breed puppy food” is that correct? He currently weighs 54 pounds.

I’d like to know how much protein too he should be getting
