We have a Corgi with a fantastic appetite.  I know that's not news to Corgi owners, but when we're at the park discussing dog issues, seems to be surprise to other pup parents.  

I feed 4oz (1/2 cup; or about 1/3 regular sized can) of wet food and 1/2 cup scoop of dry food each day.  Wet food in the morning and dry food in the evening has cut down on his bad breath!  He does get a fair amount of treats each day (bully sticks, Greenies, other training treats)

I rotate his dry food about once a month (I purchase a 5-6 lb bag). I've rotated between 3 protein sources-- fish, chicken, venison/bison.  I rotate his canned food about every 3 days or so-- I buy a variety of flavors and proteins.  My favorite brands: Taste of the Wild (more their canned than dry), Orijen (great kibble), Wellness Core (for both), Merrick (their canned food looks like REAL food!), and Weruvya.  

Jagger is super active; very lean with a great coat.  Stools are normal.  He tolerates any transition of foods without difficulty and I don't have to mix anything when I change his kibble. 

He did have super stinky farts.  I started giving him 1/2 tablet of probiotics (from Trader Joe's) and it's gone!  

He's currently 7 months and 19 lbs.  And adorable.  And mischievous.  ;)

…What do you guys feed your pups?  Anyone with pros/cons about frozen or freeze-dried?  Anyone make their pup's meals at home, and what recipe/ratios do you all follow?  I'd be interested to hear.

Anyone make their pups meals from scratch?  Anyone with opinions on frozen or freeze dried?  I want to keep to consider incorporating it into our 'rotation' of foods.

Jagger does love to eat!  We do feed him lots of treats throughout the day, especially with training him, and that's definitely part of our decision to reduce his mealtime food to make sure we don't overfeed him in general (we also have a lot of family members who absolutely love to feed him.  They think secretly.)  His weight has been progressing appropriately, I expect that he'll be on the slightly smaller side of Corgis (Dad was average build, Mom was small build).  Jagger likes Blue too!  I might be a sucker for the 'Life Bits' in the Blue.  But I think it's a great kibble overall.

I have a pup that just turned 9 weeks. He completely weened himself off of his dry/wet food mix and won't touch anything unless it's dry food. All the foods the vet here kept telling me to get for him were recalled. Thankfully I did my research before buying them. Right now he's on Blue and loves it. Although he's stubborn and sometimes it takes a push to get him to eat as much as he should.

That's not that much food for a growing pup.  They eat A LOT.  Does sound like you might be going a little heavy on the treats and that's easy to do with a pup.   Gromit (4 years) and Sparkle (2 years) get 2/3 cup of kibble twice a day and very few snacks except a bed time biscuit.  I feed Canadae All Life Stages plus PhytoMax coat supplement.

We feed Fromms. I personally am not a fan of the wet food as it's not as nutritious as kibble, and can be worse for their teeth.

While Jagger sounds like he's at a fine weight, that seems like kind of a small amount of food per day for a puppy.
