I posted awhile back on how I couldn't ever get Cooper to eat. We tried everything it would literally take us all day to get him to eat half of what he was supposed to eat in a day. Anyways, when he got completly switched to Canidae he started inhaling his food, literally! He's 8 months now and the recommened amount for him on the back of the bag is 2-3 cups. I have been feeding him 1 cup 3 times a day but he comes to get me all day long and makes me follow him to where his food is kept and lays down in front of the door and cries for more. He is an extremely active dog and we have a huge backyard and another puppy that he runs around with all day and then every night the next door neighbor brings his dog over for an hour or two and they run the entire time so I'm just wondering if since he's so active if I should increase his food intake or if the 3 cups figured by Canidae figures into the dogs activity level? Thanks!
