HI! I am new here, and a proud owner of my first female English chocolate Lab! Her name is Belle! Belle is 13 weeks, and weighing in right now at 25lbs, and growing sooo fast! My question is about feeding requirements. I do follow the instructions on the bag, have seen the feeding requirements on this site, which is about the same, and I do know about the gene they may have to over eat. Belle gets feed three times a day as she will NOT stop if I leave the food down. I feed three times a day, and do adjust as her weight goes up. Currently she gets a cup and a half of food per day, as stated on the bag for her weight. My issue is that she eats fast, which I get, but then she is literally licking the bottom of her bowl so hard, she pushes it around. She does get some training treats in between, but I do watch how many of those she can have as well. I feel as if she is STARVING, and I am getting a bit worried. She is on Purina Pro Plan for puppies. Her vet is telling me she is at the perfect weight, and to continue what I am doing...but...she breaks my heart when she licks the bottom of an empty bowl.
