Feeding a puppy
by: Anne Calmes

Well, I hope you are not free feeding your puppy, but feed the puppy 3 times a day. Feed a
quality, nutritional puppy food and a half a cup each time for a 4 mth old is a good amount. Adjust the amount to how you see the puppy growing. If it looks skinny...feed a little more...if it looks a little plump feed a little less. Every puppy has different needs.
Good Luck

Ms Ann I hope you get this. I just wwanted to let you know we bought an aussie last year. Hes one year old and we love him so much. I loved your article on here and really appreciate the info. Our little guy would not eat any kind of dog food. Keep changing it but no go. Now he does a dance when I get it ready. This was so neat. Thank you so much. We down loaded the 11 list.

Era of Open Feeding- its 2018

I free feed my puppy and he has actually lost weight. He has no aggression to eat. Doesn't try to take the food out of your hand like "scheduled dogs" do. He never over eats- as he only eats when he is hungry, and mostly will take two mouth- fulls at a time and then go run and play. He has learned to become potty trained quicker- and will let you know when he has to go. I don't have to worry about trying to plan when he has to go (oh he ate- he probably has to go)- he will now stand at the door.

There is plenty of science, research and testing that has been done to prove this. My goal of this comment is not to persuade anyone myself- but go do your research please... My opinion is just as good as the "OPINION" of the owner of this site.

Plus I don't make you feel stupid for trying to learn here- "i hope you aren't free feeding him Oh My Goshhhh".... LOL!

Food and how much to feed her
by: Debbie

My Mini Aussie is almost 4 months and weighs 12 lbs 4 oz. I feed her about 3/4 cup twice a day and she was inhaling like she was starving. I started giving her same amount but a handful at a time. She is growing upwards but definitely looks skinny. Is this normal.
