    Great read! We too are new to EB. We have always had BT before and if they weren't hungry they would leave it alone. My Bruno will scarf down anything you put in his food bowl! How much and often do you feed? Bruno is about 8 months old. We feed him twice a day 1 full cup of fry food. He is not a fatty but does look lean. Are EB just always hungry??

    I think mine would eat the whole bag if I let them. They scarf down their food in about 30 seconds! I also feed am & pm, a cup each time. They get home baked treats as well each day. Everything is measured out and we have never had an issue with weight. Mine are lean as well. The big thing to remember is as long as you can see their waist, then they are fine whether they weigh 40lbs or 65lbs. Bully's come in all shapes and sizes.

    Kevikell - What kind of home baked goodies do you feed? I've been looking for an easy quick recipe for my Bruno.

    I tried mixing greek yogurt mixed with pumpkin OR mixing blueberry/banana and then freezing in small cube trays for a nice summer treat but my girls didn't tolerate the yogurt so well. So now I am back to baking dog treats. There are lots of recipes out there but I typically make pumpkin, cinnamon treats or banana blueberry treats. I use gluten/grain free flours b/c they are on grain free food so I wanted to stick with no grain. Since coconut oil is such a hot topic these days...I use a combo of buckwheat and coconut flour to make my treats. I even found some great no bake treats as well but again I found myself tweaking the recipes to meet my dogs specific needs. The frozen treats are super quick and so are the no bake treats but when I bake treats, I make big batches and freeze them until I'm ready to use them.

    Here are a few links to some great recipes if you're interested.
