Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
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.

I am thinking of switching my 4 month old puppy to orijen puppy food. How many cups a day shall I feed him? I really don't trust those guidelines on the back.
Anyone please, your answers are appreciated.

I have never had a puppy but my full grown girl eats about 3 cups a day. My boy who is smaller eats about two cups a day. I would think a puppy would only need about a cup. Sorry im not much help in this area but lots of others have puppies and I'm sure they will chime in and help out. Welcome to the forum he sure is a cutie!

We need to know how big your puppy is and how old it is before we can give an informed opinion.

At 4 months my pup weighed about 20 pounds, so if he's similar to that weight, and if Orijen has similar ingredients and protein/carb levels etc as to Taste of the Wild than a cup a day should be fine.

Yes it has similar ingredients. He's currently @14 pounds so wouldn't mind having him weight little more. I guess I'll feed him half a cup 2x a day.

That sounds like a good plan to me. If you notice him getting a little too pudgy cut it down! Tehehe! Razz Adorable pup by the way, welcome to the forum.
