    Bulldogs are ALWAYS hungry - don't let your baby dictate to you how much she eats!

    When my puppies were that age, I think we were doing a half cup, two times per day. Those two times depend on your schedule - and when you get let your bully out to do her duty after eating. I just fed mine at breakfast time and at dinner time - and planned for potty time afterward!

    Hi, I also have a female who is a eating machine lol. I have to feed her by herself, because she will inhale her food, then steal her brother Dozers, then if I've forgotten to pick up the cat food, she'll eat that too. She whines and goes crazy any time she hears a bag rustling in the kitchen, even our cereal bags. I know of some people who use a slow feeder bowl, that is divided so they eat slower, and some people have luck with placing a tennis ball in the dish. We fed our puppies 3/4 of a cup 3 times a day, at 8 am, 2 pm and again at 8 pm. When they were 7 months old, we switched them to adult food and we now feed them 1 1/2 cups twice a day at 7 am and 7 pm. They are 10 months old now.

    Bulldog puppies seem to always need something in their mouths. Have a good supply of hard type toys like antlers or kongs or nylabones. If possible feed your puppy 3 times a day, 1/2 to 3/4 cup at a time depending on the structure of your bully. A large bone bully needs more calories. If you can only feed twice a day and you work during the day, give a small meal in the morning about a 1/4 to 1/2 cup and a bit larger meal in the evening, about 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 cup hope this makes sense. Over feeding a puppy or any dog will lead to loose stool and wasted food. No time to digest before it's pushed out, so the vitamins are not absorbed to the potential , they are hurried through.

    Keep me posted on your success.
