My Snowy eats too much

My 3 month old puppy, named Snowy just eats and eats. Looks like he never give up from eating. Once I gave him too much and he felt bad. But even so, after while he again asking for food. is he going to stop eating too much and every time asking for food?

How do you feed him? When my pup was three months, she got one cup of kibble, three times a day, plus some yoghurt and some treats. No more. Do you leave food out for him all day? If so, just give him food at certain times ( for us 6,12,6 worked best) and do not give in to hungry looks....

Tana, measure out the amount of food he should have each day and divide it into three meals. Put each meal down and allow him 15 minutes to eat it. Some goldens are food crazy for their whole lives; for others, that sense of hunger fades and they don't overeat. Do you live in UB? Welcome to the forum.

Golden retrievers think life is a party thrown especially for them

I agree with Finn's Fan, only give his required amount of food. Bentley is a total chow hound and always wanted more food, he drove me insane about it. Now between meals I give him fruits & veggies, strawberries, melon, carrots, celery, green beans, apple ect. I was giving him broccoli too but it gives him gas that could make a grown man cry so he doesn't get that anymore He loves them and he feels full.
Also I freeze slices of apple and strawberries and let him chew on them when he's teething. He would do anything for a piece of apple so I also use those for training (I cut into small pieces and poor a little lemon juice on them so they don't turn brown)
Good luck.

Thank you everybody, Snowy eats 3-4 times per day and drinking water available whole day. BUT EVEN Snowy's stomach full he is acting like he is been starving forever. And also when somebody in kitchen his asking for food and follows. Is there any way to stop him be like hungry dog? Or it will require more time I assume.

I live in Ulaanbaatar, capital of Mongolia.

First I would train him that he's not allowed in the kitchen..ever. It is very dangerous for a dog. My mom accidentally scalded my dog when I was little and I remember the pain so I never allow dogs in kitchen. It's very easy to train them. Teach him "spot" just outside kitchen door. When you're in the kitchen tell him 'spot' and make him remain there.
I also do not allow my dogs to beg for food. Ky knows this and she can be in the room when we're eating because she doesn't look at us but Bentley doesn't get that yet so we put him behind the baby gate when we eat until he learns not to beg for food.
Good luck, it can be done

Snowy seems bow legged

My Snowy now 4 months, he is growing, after shower i noticed his hair getting curly, funny. Also he learned few commands like sit, lay, stand, go to his place, he pee and poo only outside.

Week ago i noticed that his front legs are not streght, little bow legged, compared with other dogs, yes he is bow legged. Is it going to get better? Is he missing some vitamins maybe? What shall i do to fix it?

Meal scheduling is the key and giving him occasional treats would help. Give him lots of fluid. Snowy is just so adorable!
