I just brought a pup home. She is 15 months old and weighs 24 pounds. I will be feeding her ToTW twice a day, but I don't know how much to feed.

I'm triple- superior MAD- now!

Bet you are on cloud 9!

Start with the lowest amount for her weight listed on the bag and don't be too concerned if she is too spaced out to eat much the first few days. Just keep offering kibble at the meal times you need to establish and she will figure out which end is up soon.

Yep, I'm pretty happy!

My goodness, I didn't think to even CHECK the bag. red face silenced It says 1.5-2 cups a day. Guess I'll start there, then.

Most companies tell you to feed more then the dog really needs. I say check your dogs weight, then take about 15% of what they say to feed and try that to see how your dog does with it. Then just adjust from there. They tell you to feed more because if you feed more, you will buy more.
