Feeding the Airedale Terrier is a big question. It needs to be solved before the puppy arrives at your home. The food system of dogs is different from that of humans, so feeding the Airedale table scraps is not the best choice.
In general, Airedale Terrier feeding follows the general rules for feeding dogs.
However, there are features specific to this breed that need to be considered.
With natural feeding, the diet of the Airedale Terrier must necessarily contain meat (daily), which is recommended to be fed raw. However, for an Airedale Terrier puppy over 4 months old and for an adult dog, meat can be replaced with raw sea fish once a week. Its amount should be 1.5 times that of meat. All bones are removed beforehand.
Vegetables (beets, carrots, pumpkin, cucumbers, cabbage in moderation) are given daily, raw, grated, with the addition of vegetable oil (1 tablespoon).
Airedale Terrier is fed exclusively after a walk.
With natural feeding of the Airedale Terrier, your task is to correctly calculate the daily amount of the diet. To do this, you can use the following formula:
Airedale weight Daily food requirement Airedale Terrier Daily Diet
20 Kg 400 – 600 gr.
29 kg 2 – 3% of the weight of the Airedale 600 – 900 gr.
However, keep in mind that this is only a rough estimate. The serving size for the Airedale Terrier is determined empirically. Ideally, the dog eats the food, licks the bowl, and walks calmly away from it. If the pet is in no hurry to leave and is looking for lost crumbs, then the portion is small. You do not need to feed immediately. Just increase the portion for the next feeding.
