Dog Food (Canine Diet and Nutrition)/How much food should I give to my belgian malinois puppy Bella


im jeric and ive recently adopted a belgian malinois puppy
my concern is how much food should i give her?
i know it all depends on the breed and type of dogfood you feed and each dog have different metabolism..
but for average dog, how much many grams of dogfood if she is to be given an average or common brand of dogfood?
and till what age should i give her that amount?

hope you can help me..
right now ive been feeding her all she can eat 3 times a day since shes still just a puppy and needs it to grow big

thanks in advance

Hi Jeric,

The Malinois requires a nutritious, high-quality diet for his active lifestyle.
Puppies need to eat a lot--and not too much. You should be able to feel but not see their ribs, and they should have a visible waist when you look down at them.
After six months feed for an Adult dog - Recommended daily amount: 2 to 3 cups of high-quality dry food a day, divided into two meals.   Follow the guidelines provided by food manufacturers.
