Well my lab, he got 4 to five cups a day, when he was grown. So right now, go maybe a half cup twice a day, and as he gets bigger just start giving him a little bit more.

2 cups twice a day. A lot of people feed puppy food. I don't after 10 weeks. A lot of people will tell you that the food you are feeding him is crap. I won't. It is dog food and will do and he will develop fine. If you can afford better food, consider it.

Just like with people, if you can afford food better than ramen and spagettios you buy it, but most college kids would be dead if a diet liket his KILLED you.

After a week or two, look at the pup. If he is fat(a good layer of fat over his ribs or between his front legs, feed him a little less. If he is skinny(you can see or really feel his ribs and there is NO fat between his front legs) feed him a little more. Eventually, on pedigree he may eat up to 3.5 cups of food twice a day. Remember, with beter quality food you may need to feed less.

First of all labs do have sensitive tummies so dont just switch straight from one to the other. Gradually add a bit of the new food to the old food.

Can I suggest that you find a FAR better food than Pedigree. Its full of cheap, rubbish fillers and cereal is the first ingredient. Dont dog need cereals and many are allergic to them. My lab being one of them. If you can get a grain free food and gradually change him over to that. I fed my labs 3 cups twice a day soaked in water at that age. They now have 2 cups twice a day soaked in water. They are adults now. The better the food the less you have to feed.

    We just got a black lab pup 1 month ago and the vet suggested that when you start new food just give a handful at a time mixed in with his current food. Then as he/she adjusts you give a little more and more till all is the new kind. As far as the amount of any dog food they should eat right now is: Just place a small bowl of food out for now and let him/her graze it until he/she is about 3-4 months old then you can limit the food to twice a day.

    We were told to use Purina One Puppy.
