What Golden Retriever Parents Are Saying...
“Since joining Bark Food, Shifter has lost some weight and is a really healthy 11 year old pup! We recently added the beef liver sprinkles for an extra pop of flavor too."
–Kurt & Shifter
“We found BARK Food when our senior golden retriever Rosie was getting picky and it was so hard to find a quality food she wanted to eat every day. After losing her in September we continued to share [the food] with our local rescue community.”
–Elizabeth & Rosie

Golden Retriever Food FAQ's
How much food should I feed my Golden Retriever?
Every dog has a different sweet spot due to age, genetics, lifestyle, digestibility & quality of their food, and any health issues. Taking these into consideration, there are formulas that we and your vet use to estimate where to start. After that, the ultimate answer comes from this question: Is your dog maintaining a healthy, lean body weight? If the answer is YES, you are feeding the perfect amount! If the answer is NO (they are getting a little too skinny or too chubby), then we need to make some gradual adjustments.
How many times should a Golden Retriever eat per day?
For most adult dogs, splitting their daily recommended kibble amount into two meals is perfect.
How do I transition my Golden Retriever to BARK food?
To switch your Golden Retriever's diet, we generally recommend transitioning over the course of one week, gradually phasing out the old food and introducing the new food. For the first two days, feed 25% new food and 75% old food. After that, move to 50% and 50% for two days, then 75% new food and 25% old food for two more days.
By this point, your dog should be ready to eat only their new food! If your pup tends to have a more sensitive digestive system, it's perfectly okay to make the transition even more gradual. Always monitor for any vomiting, diarrhea, or appetite changes that would indicate your dog is having trouble with the new food.
My Golden Retriever still acts hungry after meals. Am I not feeding enough?
For the most part, Goldens have bottomless stomachs and will rally to beg or eat, even after consuming a full meal. Don't take their word for it!
For a healthy adult dog at their ideal weight, the answer lies in this question: "Is my dog maintaining a stable, healthy weight?" If the answer is YES, you are totally feeding enough. If this is true but your Golden is still begging intensely, it could be due to a number of things, like not feeling full (this is a volume issue rather than a calorie issue) or some health issues that indicate a vet visit isn't a bad idea.
If they are losing weight, food might be the issue, but other things could also be going on—we and you/your vet should talk about it. If they are gaining weight, ditto. If your vet says your pup's healthy and just perpetually hungry, you can try adding low-calorie extras to their dinner, like cooked green beans or broccoli, to give them that nice "full" feeling after eating without piling on the calories.
My Golden Retriever inhales their food—how do I slow them down?
It's important for dogs to chew their food before swallowing—this aids in proper digestion, helps avoid tummy upset, and decreases choking and bloat risks.
Making it harder to gobble food is a good start. To do this, try using a slow feeder bowl, scattering food on the kitchen floor (if you don't mind slobber), splitting dinner into 2–4 smaller dinners, or feeding with enrichment or puzzle toys.
