Puppy feed amount increases

I have a nine week old puppy who is currently on Wainwrights complete dry food for puppyís. Iím currently feeding him 90g, three times a day. He seems happy on this amount and I can feel all of his ribs without seeing them, so Iím happy itís enough food for now.

My question is how long do I keep him on this amount, shall I gradually increase it each week, if so by how much?

Thanks in advance

With my pup I just went by her appearance. When she was growing fast from about 6-8 months, she was eating as much as 6-7 cups a day, then at 9-10 months that went back down to 4 1/2 cups. Sorry, don't know the weights... But just go by appearance, when she starts look thin or bony, increase the food. When you can't see at least a couple of ribs, decrease.

Yep, before I feed her in the AM I look at her and she looks back at me with a question mark in her eyes. Then I decide how much I give her. In the PM she gets raw.
