puppy food intake
I have not owned a great Pyrenees prior to the new pup, Violet, we have just purchased, but I am ready for the challenge. She is barely 8 weeks old. Owning her only a few days now, she has become very comfortable with our family. I have read on other websites of specific amounts of food to consume at her age (1/2 cups, three times daily). She will consume 3/4 to 1 cup per meal. My concern is that she is interested in eating more than the 1/2 cup per meal. I understand different breeds have different needs. I want her to receive the proper nutrition she needs to become "The Great Pyrenees". She will become uninterested in food if she is not hungry anymore.
My question is... Should I let my puppy eat as much as she wants? With measuring the intake, of course. or should I stick to the 1/2 cups three times daily?
I do not want her to eat in excess of her needs causing problems down the road.
