Guidelines are averages.....if you have a dog which is highly exercised and getting thin...I'd up the food a bit and see what trend develops....need more, feed more. You are probably the best judge of your dog's body mass...the old rib test is a good place to start. I'd err to the lean side rather than overweight. Usually the guidelines on commercially prepared dog foods seem to be high as they are in the business of selling their product. But that doesn't seem to be the situation in your case. I don't think it's unusual at all that dogs will eat all which is put in front of them....
