    I feed Fromm and followed what the bag said...You can adjust it if you feel he needs more or less.

    We feed Kain 3/4 cup - 3 times a day... Almost a full cup each time so about 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 cups a day @ 6 months old.

    We keep Kain fit and trim so I feel the bag recommendation is too high for our liking.

    Yes that does not seem like enough for a 5 month old. I would guess around 3 cups per day, that is what I am feeding my 5 mo old right now

    Tank is 6 months old and 36 lbs and eats Fromm grain free. He gets 1 cup in the morning and a little over 1 cup at night plus a few snacks through the day. According to the bag he could have more, but the vet seems to think the amount he is getting is plenty - over 800 calories. Since Tank is not very active, he said 800 to 900 calories was good. Very important not to let him get overweight, as it is hard on their joints, breathing and over all well being.

    Ya I agree we've started to feed him 3/4 cup 3 times a day rather than 1/2 a cup I think this is a good middle ground I don't want him to get up to that 65-75lbs I think 55-65 is where a healthy bulldog should be.

    At 6 months he is 30 lbs, the 3/4 cup is closer to 1 cup because he is active so I would say more appropriately 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 cup a day.

    I just posted some pics to the pic thread today and will be posting a basketball video tommorow so you can check him out there.

    See how he does with that and you can always adjust if needed! When you feed a high quality food you tend to not need as much! We went by the bag and fed 2 cups in am and 2 cups in pm and it was a little too much for Brutus! We are now down to 1 1/2 2x a day give or take a little here and there! Not many treats anymore

    Once they reach 1 year you can cut back a little.... Then once they are mature adults (age 2) they should only require 3/4 c to 1 cup 2 times a day.
