What Kind of Food Does a Bernedoodle Puppy Need?

A Bernedoodle puppy needs high-quality puppy food formulated for medium to large breeds, rich in essential nutrients such as protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals. Your Bernedoodle puppy also needs a lot of hydration.

At the early stage of life, it is better to choose small kibbles and later on in life, you can switch to bigger kibble sizes. A good thing about your Bernedoodle puppy is they can eat both dry and wet food.

While dry foods are good for their dental health as they will be going through a long phase of teething throughout their puppy food, wet food can come to rescue our little picky eaters.

It is better to sometimes switch between both based on veterinarian consultation.
