    Most members and including me fed our puppies 1 cup of kibble 3 times a day, morning, lunch, and evening, until the age of 6 or 7 months. And then we switched to duly food and reduced their feedings to 1 cup twice a day feedings. Once in the morning and once in the evening.

    At 8 weeks old they should be eating approximately 1/2 cup 3 times a day. If their poo is too soft, decrease it a little, if it's too hard, increase a little.


    You will gradually increase the amount over the next two months.

    At 3 months it should be about 2-2.5 cups a day.

    At 4 months old they should be eating about 2.5-3 cups of food per day.

    This will all depend on size and weight of your pup, but the best way to tell is by the poop consistency.

    At 8 weeks old they are still very small to handle 3 cups of food, their intake is about half that amount, but at around 4 months to a year that is a good guideline amount.

    It depends on the volume and weight of the food, so that's a bit hard to calculate. Do you do ounces? 1 cup is about the equivalent of 8 oz, so 28 grams. So I'm completely guessing here but my guess is your pup should eat about 14g three times a day, slowly increasing over then next two months.

    I'm so sorry, I was on my way out when I posted that answer, and I read the title, How much to feed a pup. My guys weren't that young when I got them, so I fed them 1 cup 3 times a day.
