Need Special Diet

I have decided to get my first GSD puppy in about a few months. So I have done extensive research in training and care.

I am enrolling my GSD in puppy training, basic obediance, advanced obedience and protection training. I'm hoping to have most of this accomplished in the first 2 years.

So now I'm researching diet and nutrition. To my surprise there is different ways to go about this. Either by kibble, wet dog food, kibble wet mixture or BARF.

I want to do B.A.R.F. However I'm looking for a set diet from puppy to adult. Basically I'm looking for meal plan. Im looking for info on how much to serve and how often. I seen that there is many different variety on what you can serve and that you can switch it up every week or month. I'm looking around on these forums for more information.

My goal is to have a diet to where the dog does not get overweight or underweight. A diet that helps the dog grow and help meet an active life style.

Thanks for any responses.
