Tag is 14 weeks today. At 12 weeks when he was in for his shots, he weighed in at 26.2lbs. Tag eats approx. 3 cups 2x a day. Feeding puppies is sort of done by feel. I generally put 2 cups of food in Tag's bowl and leave his bowl with him for 10-15 minutes. After that, whatever he leaves is picked up and taken away for another meal. So, I sort of let him show me how much he needs to eat. Now, Tag is starting to look a little chunky, so I'm going to monitor him. I'm waiting to see if he hits a growth spurt, if he starts to lose his waist then I'll start cutting back what he is offered.
If Jake looks good, I would just stick with what you're feeding until he starts to look skinny, and then I'd add in a 1/2-1 cups until he loks good again.
On a good quality kibble my dogs usually start out at 8 weeks around 2 cups increase to about 4 cups in Months 4,5,6 and around 7 months start to need less and decrease to about 2 cups by a year which is about where all my adults are.
