Thanks, Marcha for bringing up a few points I missed.

As your babe is still a pup, you will need to feed him more than what an adult would. The 2-3% is for adult dogs, 7-8% would required for a puppy.

Another good point Marcha brought up is you might find larger hunks of meat work better for you than ground up patties. I find with Brynn the same thing... I have tried her on the ground patties and she gulps them way too fast, so I prefer to give her a hunk of meat with bone attached that she actually has to work at (plus it keeps her entertained for longer!!).

My babies: Sassy - Maltese X (9), Furby - Shihtzu X (7), Brynn - Boxer (3), Diesel - Boxer (1)
