    HEY,
    Memphis will be hitting 11 weeks this week and I just want to make sure he is getting the proper amount of food, and when should I start giving him more?

    With puppies its easy, they look thin, feed them more.

    Look heavy, cut him back.

    A quick and dirty rule of thumb is 1 C per month of age thru 4-5 mos. Adjust from there for more or less exercise/energy and relatively easy feel of ribs. I like to keep ~1/8 to 1/4" of fat over my pups' ribs.

    If I recall correctly, I was feeding Blaise 1.5 cups 3 times a day at that age.
