Thank you for your replies! 3xs/day seems good, I think I'll separate into 4 hour intervals... Brands was also a question I had. Obviously Wellness, etc. would be better than Iams and so on (I've heard corn meal is terrible!) but my husband was recently laid off, so we are on a budget! Like, a WalMart budget lol.. Any ideas/opinions?

I think Walmart sells Pro plan...not sure though what else. I've fed that to my other dogs when they were younger. Maybe someone will have a better suggestion or have better knowledge of what walmart carries...

We also feed at 6-12-6....seems to work the best for us, but every dog is different and you'll find your schedule of what works for you...

I don't shop at WalMart for political reasons but I remember chatting with a friend and searched the Petco prices compared to what he was purchasing at WalMart and they weren't to far apart.

I would try 5 hour intervals, so the puppy doesn't have to go 12 hours without food.

Do you have a Costco near you? They have some nice dog food. Petsmart carries Simply Nourish LB, Nutro Natural Choice, although Pro Plan is probably one of the best values. Which ever food you choose, look for the dog food reps in the petstore for coupons, not their advice. I believe, you can sign up for manufacturer coupons on their websites too.

I fed chester 3 times a day 3 cups a day. He eats pro plan. It all depends on your dog, if they are very active and burn a lot then you can feed a bit more but if you see your dog gaining a lot of wait then feed less. Chester is 6 months and starting monday he will be getting 2 meals a day instead of 3.

btw your pup does look full golden.

hi, our puppy is 8 weeks. we got him home 3days back. I am feeding him 2 times as the breeder did. Brand is iams ( 0 to 24 months)and i am feeding about 3 cups a day. Should I feed him thrice instead of twice?
