I've been hearing mixed thoughts on when to begin adult food. My two girls have recently been spayed and I want to make sure they don't get overweight. I've started cutting out lunch but they just seem so hungry (I do realize that's a Corgi trait!) I also want to make sure they are properly nourished. I've been told to continue puppy food until they were 1-1/2 years old but I also know that puppy food is usually higher in calories. I'm feeding 1/2 cup of kibble in the morning and 1/2 cup kibble plus 2oz protein (chicken, beef, tuna, salmon, etc), with some peas or green beans for dinner. If they are very active in the mornings when I'm home on the weekends, I will give then a tiny bit of kibble with an egg for lunch. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

There are a lot of threads on here about puppy feeding that you could search out for more info, but a lot of folks don't ever feed puppy food.  Rather an all life stage food is used.  Being a dwarf breed, it is thought that their bone development does better on this food.  In any case, I wouldn't feed puppy food past 6 months.  The amount varies based on activity level.  To me it sounds like you are feeding a lot, but you don't say how old they are.  They need more when puppies, but don't get them to used to it!  LOL.  The worst thing you can do for a corg is let them get overweight.  Also, factor in any training treats into their daily consumption.
