Default help with fish oil capsules...

Hello i have a 3 year old german shepherd, called Alfie.
I've heard that you can give your dogs human grade fish oil.. What should/shouldn't you look for when buying them and would you say salmon oil is better? or just omega 3 fish oil?

I've been looking at these two and wondered if these would be ideal? and if so how many would you guys suggest?
Holland & Barrett Omega 3 Fish Oil Concentrate Capsules 1000mg | Holland & Barrett - the UK's Leading Health Retailer

Holland & Barrett Salmon Oil Capsules 1000mg | Holland & Barrett - the UK's Leading Health Retailer

Any advice would be appreciated!

Ingredients should always be named.
This company does not state WHICH fish they used in their product.

I agree, I don't like when ingredients are vaguely named. From my research salmon, mackeral, and sardines seem to be the 'go to' fish with the most benefits.

I've read many times that the addition of fish oil in a dog's diet needs some vitamin E added as well....some fish oil capsules come that way I believe.
