No elevated bowls unless its medically necessary... I suggest a brake-fast.net
medium or large sized bowl and an hour rest before and after eating!
run on grass (limit the amount of time depending on age), if you're on pavement/concrete only walk and not for too long (10-45 minutes depending on age), hiking is good too but again keep the dogs age in mind, swimming is probably the best thing for them and can help build muscle in the hips, limit jumping
You will know if your pup is getting too little exercise, try nose games like tossing a treat and having her "find it", training outside, or anything that makes them think can help wear them out without putting too much stress on the joints.
feed good quality grain free food, raw, or make your own if you know what you are doing.. check sites like chewy.com
for prices they are sometimes lower than in store.
add in supplements (do your research), coconut oil
, green tripe (raw is best but tripett brand is good alternative)
add pumpkin (lots of Vitamin A so watch amount given), yogurt, or some other probiotic (have used FortiFlora [http://www.amazon.com/Purina-Veterinary-Diets-Fortiflora-Sachets/dp/B001650NNW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1383057150] with good results) for poops
stay away from rawhide's, try split large elk antlers, bully sticks, and trachea's as an alternative (bestbullysticks.com
never feed anything from china, for treats its best to make your own (Category: Homemade Treats - K9 Instinct - Dog Nutritionist in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. K9 Instinct Blog! Dog Nutrition consultations online!
for allergies try raw (unheated) local honey (watch amount given and if the pup is young), and/or Quercetin
most importantly IMO would be to research more
about the vaccine's the vets push on you and determine if you really need it, and unfortunately you are probably required by law to get rabies vaccination but here
is some good info
Note: I am no expert and these are just my opinions and thoughts, enjoy your pup and dont worry too much!
