    I fed mine 3 cups not including treats. You can adjust a by based on your bulldog if you feel he is getting too much food total in the day. My 2 were pudgier as puppies and thinned out a bit (don't get me wrong, they're body type is still compact meatball) as they got older.

    I love the description-Compact Meatball!

    He's four months, he goes out an hour after eating... he just never wants to poop then... only at three in the morning.

    Feeding earlier is the new plan. He has kind of stabilized at 27 lbs for the week since new food so that's a plus lol

    I fed chunky at 7, 12, 7 until 6 months when i started feeding him just twice per day and switched to adult Fromm. He ate Orijen puppy as a pup and is now on Acana Appalachian Ranch because he shed too much with Fromm. Give he what he likes and doesnt have any issues with

    Chunky, your schedule appears to be working better for him. First night, no interruptions. I think he just was full of poo by three am and had to wake up.

    That sounds terrible lol

    Update! First Pablo weighs 35 lbs and is 4.5 mos old. Second... vet said he's doing excellent and looks very good.
    This put to rest our fear of over weight. He's up to date on all shots, no joint problems, everything is perfect! Wooo!
    Can't explain how happy I am!

    Vet did suggest researching neutering and deciding when we want to. I know there are pages on pages here about no right or wrong answer, so I have to convince my gf to stick it out till a year.
    She wants 6 months and the vet mentioned that he's mouthy and if he stays mouthy, it'll help that. She was all for it after that. I want my boy as big and grown as he can get before the snip.
    Decisions decisions. Thank god for this forum!
