    Half a cup 3x a day. I wouldn't leave food out all day... some pups can control themselves and some can't. You also want to establish a schedule for your pup early on. Routines are good habits.

    Some dogs prefer to eat one meal instead of two. It depends on your dog. My Akita and Kai enjoy eating one meal a day. My Shiba used to eat throughout the day. He couldn't control his intake and would just keep going.

    I do put the food away when my Akita and Kai are full.

    I have heard that dog's under 1 year shall have 2 meal of day, all over 1 year can get 1 meal.

    But you know all people means different about things like that, all of my dog get 2 meal, morning and evening.

    But or American Akita only get 1 meal :)

    With our Kai pups they would def. over eat. We feed 2x's a day and while they are actively growing we would monitor when they started slowing down during breakfast/dinner and started to appear like they were getting full. Then, that's about how much we'd try to put out for them at meal time and regulate from there. I kinda approach it like I do with our child. If they're growth spurting and need a lil more... I give it to them :o) Right now Ki (at one year old) is getting 1 and 1/4 cup of food a.m. and p.m. and her weight is looking really good. Kunia at 7 mths is getting about 1 cup am and pm and he looks really good right now too.
    What day is it?
