    Default How much to feed your dog

    Hello everyone!

    Obi is 23 weeks today. I feed him twice a day, a cup of puppy dog. A couple of things:

    Should I raise him up from a cup? I just want to make sure he is eating enough. When is a good time to give him more food?

    Also, he finishes his food so fast. I feel like as soon as I put his dish down he eats it all out of his stainless steel bowl really really really fast. Does anyone have any opinions on if "slow feed" bowls are okay with bullies? I was considering getting him one, but I want to see if anyone has any reviews of their uses?

    Thanks guys!

    My Obi is starting to look like a big boy! I love him so much!http://sendvid.com/b30dk95k

    Hi Nate, I would increase his food to 3 cups a day. Most members feed their puppies 1 cup of puppy kibble 3 times a day. Puppies need the extra calories, minerals and vitamins for their growth and development. Once Obi is 7 months to 1 year, you can switch him to an adult formula kibble and reduce his feedings to 1 cup twice a day. I don't have any experience using slow feed bowls, but have seen them, and know people who use them and love them.

    I feed Nyala 3 cups a day n she's 5 months old. She free feeds usually leaves 1/2 - 1cup in her bowl. But as of 7pm I remove her dish. She's fed puppy Orijien which is high in calories but has everything a puppy needs. After this bag she's going on adult origen.

    For your dog eating fast I use to put a ball in my German Shepherd's bowl. Make sure it's big enough not to swallow

    We feed 1.5 cups twice a day at that age and we put a tennis ball in his bowl to slow his eating down - it helps a bit, though there have been times he will talk the ball out and then continue eating.

    Hi Nate, my pup is 25 wks and is fed puppy kibbles 1 cup a day 3 times a day. Just recently started mixing in a boiled egg yolk twice a week. Which he loves! Last time he was weighed approx 3 wks ago he weighed 45lbs! He's been fed the same since we brought him home at 8 wks. Hope that helps!
