Hi everyone!  Gutie is 4.5 months now and is getting 1/2 cup of Fromm's Puppy dry food 3x day (7am, 12pm, 5:30pm).  I can visibly see his waistline and his ribs (both of them aren't sticking out, but I can see them without any difficulty).  He's an active dog (puppy play dates 2x/week, hiking/long walks everyday, swimming at the beach/pool, running freely at the park/cabin).  I took him to the vet to get weighed the other day on their scale and he's nearly 21lbs, but she the tech assured me he's great and is just going to be a big boy when he's older (according to his big paws and lots of loose, excess skin).

Am I feeding him enough?  Too much?  He gets treats, but only a stick or two of pupperoni a day (either to train with or when on walks when he meets new people to make it a good experience). 

Thanks!  :)

Sounds like a fine amount.

IMO you are feeding him just right. Soon (maybe 6 months) you may want to cut down to maybe 1/2 cup in the AM and 1/2cup in the PM and maybe 1/4 at lunch. being he is still young and you can see his waist and ribs. My corgis didn't weigh this much so they must be smaller and they now get a total (as adults) of 1 cup per day to maintain their weight. I also spread out their feedings.

Sounds like he is getting plenty of exercise to burn off the calories and stay fit. That's good.
