well most people here just probably just use a standard measuring cup that you buy from the store (well I do). I go by the back of the bag and adjust if my dogs are getting too skinny or overweight. Giving handfuls of dog biscuits isn't really a very accurate way of feeding your puppy though. What kibble do you feed? Maybe trying switching his kibble.

Either would I, but if this guy lives in Malaysia he probably has a limited selection, and even Science Diet beats feeding dog biscuits.

oh, i feed him with local brand dog food. sorry it's not biscuit, it's lamb&rice treat. ****, i dunno wat im talking about...

u r right Herschel, i do not hav many choices here. In addition, the branded dog food like Eagle, Purina...it's so expensive here. All the imported brands are really rip off here.

what i did yesterday, i gave him 1cup of dogfood, after finished it, he still whining n keep licking my toe (auww).... so, I gave him another cup. after that, he stopped bothering me and walk away to do his 'business'. so i guess 2cups is just right for my puppy

my puppy is 10weeks old now, so by what age, i should increase his food weight?

thanks all.

That is pretty dangerous, if you ask me. You should control how much food your dog gets, your dog shouldn't control how much food you give him!

Have you checked the bag to make sure there are no feeding guidelines? Is there a phone number on the bag that you could call to ask about it?

What kind of food are you feeding, Happy? Is the "Back to Basics" that I suggested before available to you?
