|Galathiel||You have to go by the individual dog and his body condition. There is no set formula. As long as your dog is lean, ribs can be easily felt, with a waist (not all dogs have a tuck..mine has more now, but had hardly any when younger). My pup right now (8 months old) eats 6-7 cups a day. He's nice and lean. Another dog might be hugely overweight on the same feeding regimen. Varik would be emaciated on 3 cups a day (which I've seen many people feed).|

Loose stool as well will indicate over feeding. I feed 1 cup 3 times day to my 11 week old I am increasing today though.

How to know?
I feel like my puppy eats and is still hungry a lot. He's 15 weeks. I was feeding him 1 cup three times a day but now I do that four times per day and he seems more satisfied. The thing is though is he's still pooping the same amount (2x per day). How do I know if I'm overfeeding him? He's grown a lot taller and bulked up some in the shoulders but still is very lean in the middle. Is four cups too much?
This is what he's eating: Attachment 152426
