Feeding Question

I'm new to the forum I have a 7 week old female GSD, and I'm just wondering how many times a day should me and my girlfriend feed her?

The average is 3 times. Take the daily suggested feeding from the bag, and feed 3 equal parts. As far as removing water and stuff- I never did that and didn't have a problem.

3-4 times,

Ask what times, and how often your breeder was feeding.

Usually if you cut off food and water at 7PM, and then let her out one last time at 11PM, she should be able to go until 6AM without pottying, of course every dog is different.

I've never had a 7 week old puppy but I got my GSD when he was 11 weeks old and I fed him 1 cup 3x a day, so 3 cups a day until he was about 5 months old. I used to take away water about 2 hours before bed.

I have a 12 week old Dal puppy now, he is fed a little over half a cup 3x a day, I will feed him like this until he is 5 months old. I cannot restrict water from him though so if I am going to sleep for 7 hours I set the alarm for 3.5 hours and take him out to potty.
