    Mahler is 21 weeks old boy, not neutered yet. And he weighs around 65lbs at the moment.
    I'm giving him Purina Pro Plan Large Breed Puppy Food.

    According to the chart in the bag, I was supposed to give him 5-1/2 cups a day, but I've been giving him 6 cups since 4 months. (2,500 cal/day) And also I've been giving him lots of treats when we're training.. (boiled chicken, low calorie training treats, etc)

    So he rarely finish all 6 cups a day (I feed him 3 times a day, 7am, 12pm and 5pm, 2 cups each), so I think he's probably eating about 5 cups, but since I'm giving him lots of treats for training, I wonder if I should reduce the food amount?

    I don't think he's overweight, this is him right now Mahler, weekend trip to the root river - Imgur

    ++ Also he's fairly active, we do 2-3 short walks and playdates every 2-3 days, where he runs and wrestle with other dog for 30-60 min
