    The Skinners bag says 100g for every 8kg of the dogs body weight. So I'd say just under 400g per day for your older dog and about 80g per day for the pup.

    If I were you though, I'd give Skinners a quick call and just ask, they've been really helpful everytime I've called them.

    Yep, I would email/ring too, just to be on the safe side. As mentioned, they are v helpful.
    Hope you have great success with the food, my girl is positively thriving on the stuff :thumbup:

    Hi there, I have a skinners field and trial feeding guide for puppies - it states your little bundle of joy should either have;

    Body weight: 3kg - 5kg
    3 - 11 weeks: 185g - 225g (per day)

    or

    Body weight: 5kg - 10kg
    3 - 11 weeks: 430g - 545g (per day)

    These measurements given are in grams per day. Skinners stipulate that this feeding guide is approximate only and that nutritional requirements of all dogs can vary according to breed type, gender, age or activity level. :)

    Hope this is useful. :thumbup:
