It is best to store your dog food in a cool and dry place. Once you’ve opened the bag, place the whole bag with the contents in a drum or bucket. The bag should not be placed directly on a concrete floor as there is moisture on the floor and it can migrate into the bag and cause mould. If you need to keep it in the garage, place it on a shelf or on something that’s off the floor.

Just like you, your dog is an unique individual and its feeding requirements will vary with its breed, environment, age and activity. That’s why we suggest using this chart as a starting point and monitoring your dog’s weight and adjusting its rations as needed.
We recommend feeding your dog twice daily and always keep fresh, clean water available.
When switching diets, it’s important to transition your dog as it takes time for its digestive system to adapt to the richer nutrient levels in Acana. Over a 7 day period, gradually mix in Acana, increasing the amount each day so that by day 7 you are feeding 100% Acana.
