    Me and a buddy go every day. Usually go to Conway. Where do you usually go to train?

    When mine go home at 8 wks, they typically are eating 2-2.5C a day, so the 3 isn't out of the ballpark if he's an active pup. The probios/digestive enzymes often reduce that need though. I had one litter last year that peaked at 3-3.5C a day at 4 mos. Some dogs use their food better than others.

    I cut him back to about half to 3/4 of a cup 3 times a day. I'm going to try this and see if we can lean him up just a little.

    AUgunner. message me back on ALducks.com. I just started training with some people in Auburn. can't PM people on here yet. We would be glad to have you bring your puppy out. 3 cups if food a day does sound like an awful lot of food. I feed my 70lb yellow lab 1 1/2 cups of food in the morning and 1 1/2 cups of food in the evenings and she maintains her weight with no problems. Also, If your not going to be able to feed your pup 3 times a day from now on I would suggest cutting it back to twice a day to get his metabolism used to it. Thats what my vet told me atleast
