Grain free

In general, dogs should eat about 2-3% of their body weight daily. 
Puppies should eat about 2-3% of their expected adult body weight.

Dog caloric intake varies wildly from dog to dog depending on activity level, age, metabolism, breed, gender, reproductive status, if it is spayed/neutered and ideal weight. As always, experiment, use common sense, and talk to your vet. Our general guidelines are as follows:
