How much to feed?

5 going on 6 month old GSD. Weighs 50-60 pounds. I want to know how much and how often he should be eating. I have him eating 2 cups at breakfast, 1 cup for lunch, and 2 cups for dinner. His weight seems fine but he’s pretty slim. Just asking for people’s thoughts on it.

Different brands of food have various feeding guidelines.

How does your amounts compare to recommendations on the bag?

Folks would need top view and side view pictures of your very cute pup!

Need calorie count. Cups of food vary in calorie content wildly....

I swap back and forth between Victor and TOTW. Feed morning and evening 1.5 cups of kibble each meal with various toppings. I switched to feeding twice when Mei turned 6 months.
