Default amount/how many times

so my question is how often should i feed, and how much should i feed my 7 week old Lab mix puppy? i am feeding him Nutri source. large breed puppy chicken/rice fomula. Says it has balancd omega 3&6 with DHA. The side of the bag says 3 cups a day for a pup that's going to be his size and is his age now.

Thanks ahead of time,

Three times a day is ideal at this age, going down to twice a day at around 12 weeks.

I thought you went down to 2X a day once they were 6 mos? (Or atleast this is what I've always done)
As for ammounts, it can vary alot, depending on how active, how fast their growing, and size. I'd start with what the bag says, and adjust from there.

I always feed my puppies 3 times a day until they are 4-5 months old.

The amount will depend on his body condition etc...

I've usually fed three times a day until about 5 months.
How much you will feed depends on the size, activity, etc. of your pup.
