    Is there any difference? Lol. He's just a normal Bully, they are very food oriented, and will eat and eat, and eat. My Blossom is food crazy, she doesn't eat her food, she inhales it like it's her last meal, or we never feed her. Then she tries to take her brothers food, and then she has figured out how to open the latch on the food storage bin, and she sticks her head and front paws inside the bin, and tries to inhale as much food as she can. I now turn it backwards so she. Ant get to the latch. I've outsmarted her. Lol. He even goes after the cat food, so we have to keep her dish up high, she's always hungry. We call her Fatty McPatty. Lol. We feed our guys 1 cup of kibble in the am with plain yogurt on top, and they get 1 cup of kibble in the pm, usually with some cooked veggies on top, whatever we are having like cooked broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, or green beans. For treats we give them cut up apples, strawberries, 1/2 a banana each, green beans, cheese strings, or sometimes cottage cheese. You can try using a slow feeder bowl if he eats too fast, or some people use a stand that holds the food bowl, at a higher level, to slow down their eating.

    You are covered for sure. Harlea would eat non-stop if I would let her.

    Everyone gave you good advice- but I'm wondering how much you're giving him at each feeding? 1/2 cup, cup?

    No matter which way I do the math (density, kibble size etc), That's less than 1 cup per day spread out into 3 meals. Your puppy IS hungry. I even went and weighed Blue's kibble and his is over 100 grams per cup.

    Take a look at this http://www.wellbeloved.com/ideal-bod...feeding-guides For a pup that's going to grow into a 50-60lb dog, you should be feeding him over 400grams of James per day. Please give him more food!

    Am I missing something @desertskybulldogs @Davidh @2BullyMama
