Im a little shell shocked right now. I've always had dobermans. Super lean dogs! At 3 months they are still eating two cups a day. Now I have a full grown GSD (rescue) and, an 2.5 month GSD and, I'm not sure Im feeding either enough right now. I initially switched my full grown Fynn, to a decent dog food (Nothing crazy expensive but something high in meat, no bonemeal no byproduct) He got to a much healthier weight quickly but, still was too lean so once he was adjusted to that, I started adding a 1/2 cup of boiled chicken and, rice to every meal. I just now cut that out of his diet and, he is getting a nice huge steak once a week. His coat, teeth, weight all look great! I'm worried with out the chicken and, rice he'll lose weight. He gets a three and a half cups of food a day. This is what we always fed (depending on the dog) our full grown male dobermans but, I know they are different. I can't imagine He needs 5 cups a day? Does he?
Our puppy Vandy is getting two cups a day (through three feedings) and, her weekly steak. She's a puppy so she's always hungry and we are ready to up her food but, to how much? She has a nice soft round belly, no boating or anything but, she is a big girl.
HELP! Haha Any thoughts?
