Giants Tips Paw print
Tip 173: Poor Puppy Eating Habits
Young Giants can easily be distracted at their feed bowl. Their natural curiosity and playfulness will lead them to everything but finishing up at feeding time. One sure fire way to get them to finish is to always feed them with another dog. Their natural instincts will keep them at their bowl until finished. More tips...
Tip 174: Maintaining Ideal Weight
Obesity in canines is a growing problem and can lead to serious health issues. We have used a rule of thumb that has worked for our Giant as well as his female Mini Schnauzer stable mates. This easy-to-remember rule of thumb is to simply feed your dog 2% of their target body weight. So for example if we want to maintain Max at a trim 90 pounds for the show ring, we simply make sure to feed him about 2% of 90 pounds or about 1.8 pounds of kibble or raw chicken, his normal diet, every day. We have used this rule-of-thumb for over 3 three years and it works!
Welcome
Welcome to the Lakeside Giant web site, Lakeside's home base for all things Giant. If you're reading this page then it is likely we have a common interest in an outstanding canine breed called Giant Schnauzers. Lakeside Giants is a recently formed giant schnauzer "boutique" kennel dedicated to developing a small, selected number of champion Giant Schnauzers. Our kennel started with a love of the breed that grew from the time we brought our first Giant home to meet his "mini' schnauzer companions. There is nothing quite like the joy of raising, training and living with an extended family of Giant and Miniature Schnauzers.
