I have a question about how much to feed. I have a 9 month old pup that weighs in right at 70 lbs. He is not skinny and he is not fat. Actually I think his weight is just about right. You can almost see his ribs. but not quite. So here is my question. I only feed him two cups of food a day. (one morning, one evening) . He is on euk puppy food. He gets alot of work on land and water and is always hungry. Could two cups be enough to sustain him? I dont want to put weight on him too fast but I know he also needs the nutrition. It just dosnt seem like much food.

Each dog is different. For example last fall during hunting season, we were feeding my husband's 9 month old, 30lbs springer 4 cups/day, and you could see her ribs. My 80lbs, fairly active working GSD was getting about 4.5 cups/day of the same food. My CBR was getting about 2.5 cups/day. Feed to the correct body weight, not by what the bag says.
