2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Puppy Feeding Guide   Tue Jan 17, 2017 8:05 pm

Hi all,
New to the forum and have been trawling the internet and this forum for information on the quantity you should be feeding your husky pup. From what I've found most feed their fully grown sibes 2 cups a day of TOTW. I'm in the process of switching my 4 month old from Royal Canin medium puppy to TOTW puppy and then eventually at 9-12 months to the adult food. Looks like the feeding guide on the bag is way off for the husky breed. So my question was how much should I be feeding as a general guide for 4, 5, 6 months onwards etc.

Currently we feed her (320grams a day) 160grams in the morning and 160grams at night + a handful of treats during the day. She seems healthy and happy with this quantity and weighs about 13kg, with no loose stools ever.
Because of the difference in the brands I thought I'd check first before upping or lowering her quantity.

P.S: Royal Canin recommend upping to 330grams at 5 months then dropping back to 300grams a day after 7 months

Thank you again for the already expansive information I've read from your members on here and sorry if this has already been covered elsewhere

Feeding guides typically overfeed dogs by a long shot.

I personally would feed the same amount with the new food and see how her weight and stools react to the change. When I transitioned foods, I didn't change the amounts until I could see any sort of effect on the dog.

I fed my boy when he was a puppy 3 cups daily and then fed 2.5-2 cups between the age of 9 months and 18 months, then lowered it down to 1.5 cups a day.

To me it's more of a look and feel. Feed more if you feel the dog is losing weight / getting too skinny and feed less if the dog is gaining weight / looking too fat. Once you find that balance, then feed consistently.
