My current puppy, at 13 weeks, is eating 2.5 cups of kibble plus a half pound of raw per day (roughly 1200 calories). My last puppy was eating 3 cups per day from 8 weeks until 12 weeks, then 4 cups per day until I switched him to raw at 5 months (heís a lean 70 pound, 3.5 yo adult now). Iíve not found the feeding guidelines on the bag of kibble to be terribly accurate based on age or weight, unfortunately. I would say your puppy is likely to need more than 700 calories per day. I would up it a bit more than that and then feed based on body condition. Itís a bit of a guessing game at first, thatís for sure!
Train the dog in front of you.
