Help with puppy growth diet please

I looked through the stickies and couldn't find the answer I'm looking for. My pup is 10 weeks old and growing. If someone can point me in the right direction on what to read to ensure my puppy is eating right I would appreciate it much!

What are you feeding him? TOTW is a reasonably priced all life stages grain free food. I've heard, Kirkland, Diamond, and some others are good as well. Use the search function and look up rating and comparison and it should pull up a little test for your food of choice.

I'd say feed twice daily, less work.
I feed 2 times daily, 2 cups each feed.

Yea I am following the guidelines on the back of the dog food bag. Atm I have her eating 2 cup servings; one serving @ 7 am after her morning business, then another serving at 7...4 hours before bedtime.

But she eats it in like 10 seconds, something tells me shes gonna be a big girl. She has alot of loose skin on her jaw (not so much on her skull) and for 11 weeks, her paws are bigger than most full grown dogs I know!

Each dogs calorie requirements vary slightly, depending on their metabolism, the amount of exercise they are getting and how much they are growing. How much does she weigh now?

Puppies eat a LOT as they are growing, but then really tail off on what they NEED once they hit 7 or 8 months and are past the really big growth spurts. Just something to keep in mind for the future, as I see a lot of people continue to feed their dogs huge amounts past this point and then the dog is obese by one year. Ya got a ways to go before that though!

Dogs are chow hounds. You can slow her down a bit, either by putting her meals in work to eat toys (like Kongs or Tug a Chugs, etc.) or putting it into muffin pans. If she eats it slower, she will have time to realize she is full by the time she is done.

Well she's about 10-11 weeks now, and I haven't weighed her but from an educated guess (my king Charles spaniel is about 15 lbs and I picked her up all the time) she's gotta be at least 15-20 lbs...the weight fits her perfectly so I know she's not fat. Her chest is muscly and broad.

No Problem at All My Friend, But be aware... You say she eats alot, If you feed her too much of Diamond Lamb & Rice it will Definitely show. That can be a good or bad thing, Some people like a little "Wobble" on there pup and some like them Fit. / I go for the Fit Wobble look lol

TOTW would have been a better choice, but see how she does with the Lamb and Rice. Dogs don't really need the "rice" part it's more of a filler.
Start out with what the package suggests and just monitor her. If she looks like she's chubby reduce it a bit and go from there. Most packages say to feed Ecko 2 cups per day. He would be skin and bones if that's all I fed him. He has a high metabolism.
Don't feel bad about the Beneful part, that's what my boy was eating when I got him too. Good on you for switching. Great on you for researching.
