The breeder should be helping you with this and the reputable ones will be more than happy to help.

Make sure to take your pup to the vet for a check over. Have him neutered at the vet recommended age.

You want to feed the pup what his ideal body weight will be. If you are feeding raw, feed 2 to 3% of his ideal body weight.

So, if he will be 100 pounds when he matures, feed 2 pounds a day. Feed that over times a day

If it's kibble, again, check the bag for recommendations and ask the vet.
