Default Puppy eating real food?

I've read about supplementing dog food with fruits, vegetables, etc...Does this apply to puppies too?

I think the key to any food (raw, cooked, kibble...) is to start out slowly and see how they react to it but I don't know anything specific for puppies. We'll wait for Mordy.

yes it does. the earlier in life you get dogs used to different items, the more likely they are going to accept unusual items later on as well.

as with everything, not overdoing it is key.

hi dani12. when i got my pup, i intended to switch him from kibble to a raw diet when he was 10 months old, so i had a lot of new foods to introduce to him. i began early (3 months or so) by introducing one new food a week in small amounts to prevent tummy upset. first thing i gave him was raw carrot run through the food processor, followed by organic whole milk yogurt. at about four months i introduced him to raw bones and meat. i beleive that the addition of real whole foods is a benefit to any dogs diet, but like the others said, take it sllloowwwww.

Thanks for info. We have let them try apple, carrot, celery, and strawberry so far. And they have LOVED them all!
