Default Training, food, treats

Hi all,

This forum has been amazing. Thanks for posting all the great advice. I've been reading like crazy.

My question for the day involves the amount of food I should be feeding my puppy. He's a 3 month old English Shepherd (med/large breed). Right now he's about 19 lbs and we think he'll grow to about 65-70lbs. He loves loves loves training, including dashing across the park to "come puppy" and searching for us behind hiding spots.

Our vet told us two weeks ago to feed him 1 cup of Innova a day (1/2 in morning, 1/2 in evening). So we've been trying to limit his total intake, including the freeze dried liver treats, to the 1 cup a day. So about 1/2 a cup in the morning, 1/4 for dinner and 1/4 of mixed kibble and freeze dried liver for training treats. Sometimes, we reserve the whole evening amount for treats. But even if we just feed him one piece of kibble or a very small piece of liver, we end up going through the amount we've allocated. Is the 1 cup a day enough for him? Can we go over with the liver treats? Should I not feed him the full 1/2 cup in the morning? Or are we over training him?? Any other activities that he might enjoy that can be done in the evenings?
