Nursing pups are ready to start nibbling on moistened solid food at three to four weeks of age. Allow them to eat as much as they can consume in a 30-minute period. After they are fully weaned (six to eight weeks), keep dry puppy food available for them at all times or feed them according to the frequency listed in the chart. When your puppy is one year old, you can begin the transition over to an adult dog food. Gradually change the food over a four to seven date period.
