How much should you feed?
This guideline is for puppies up to an age of approximately 9-12 months.
For large breed puppies it should be used up to 24 months.
Because young dogs are constantly growing, they need a higher percentage of food than adult dogs.
The easiest way to work out how much to feed your puppy is to feed a percentage of its body weight.
You can use the following:
Age Percentage (per day)
8-12 weeks 10-8%
12-16 weeks 8-6%
16-24 weeks 6-5%
24-32 weeks 5%
32+ weeks 4%
36 + weeks 3-4%
These percentages are a guide. It’s important to regularly weigh your puppy and keep a record of their weight so you can
increase/decrease their food as and when necessary.
As a general rule, adult dogs should be fed around 2-3% of their ideal adult weight depending on activity levels.
For senior dogs, we’d recommend feeding approximately 1-3% of their ideal adult weight.
