Mistake #1: Too much variety!.
Solution: chicken! Chicken everywhere. and build up more variety...slowly.

Mistake #2: Worrying....ABOUT EVERYTHING. not being able to give them this,or that,or i am doing it wrong,or what if they need this vitamin....
Solution: get more informed. Asking people on the Forums like crazy xD.

Mistake #3: Added liver too soon.
Solution: Learning that balance is achieved overtime and that i can go over a month with no organ or red meat introduced.

Mistake #4: Introducing beef too soon.
Solution: Learning that beef should be the last on my list.

Mistake #5: Not weighting or calculating portions. Terry is..A TINY bit fat...but he is a puppy.
Solution: get a kitchen scale and calculate portions. feed less quantity.*being careful as he is still a puppy,so he does need to be well fed*

Yay! Those are my mistakes.....for now.
