To help abate your dog's diarrhea, add 1-to-4 tablespoons of pumpkin to your dog's meal.

It is a good idea to start out with smaller quantities to avoid adding too much fiber to your dog's diet, and if you have any questions about exactly how much pumpkin to feed your dog, consult your veterinarian.

A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e.

15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc.

Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.
