Thanks everyone. He's our first dog, so we just followed the package's instructions. No wonder he's so big. We'll work on it though, and now we know better!

You're doing him the greatest favor ever, by getting his weight down. Excess weight takes years off their lives and is so hard on their joints. Thank you for learning and being concerned to do better. I think many of us have been in your shoes, and had overweight dogs just because we didn't know any better.

Here is a link to a site that has some good information about nutrition and calories for dogs. It includes a calculator.
Dog Food Calculator

We got into trouble with Max's weight by not measuring accurately and giving him too many dog biscuits. He has been losing about one pound a week since we became strict with his food and treats.

Regarding the Fish smell breath- I eat very little fish myself because I don't like the smell or taste of it. I was concerned about this when I started feeding my guys PPP SS last year, but really don't notice a smell. I also spray my dogs teeth after meals with an Oral Spray cleaner, which probably helps.
