|51 to 75||2-2/3 to 3-1/3|

|100+||4-1/4 plus 1/4 cup for each 10 lbs of body weight over 100 lbs|
By around eight weeks of age your puppy should be eating solid food.
Puppies should be fed three to four times a day therefore if you are currently feeding ¾ a cup of puppy food twice a day you should consider spacing it out by feeding ½ cup three times a day.
Most experts recommend feeding your dog twice a day — once in the morning and once in the evening — though puppies under five months of age should be fed three to four times a day, or as directed by your veterinarian.
At a minimum, it's advised to bathe your dog at least once every three months.
You can wash your dog as frequently as every other week (with gentle shampoo, it could be even more frequent).
When in doubt, use your judgment — if your dog starts to smell, it's probably time for a bath.
A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e.
15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc.
Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.
Typically, smaller breeds and younger dogs will need to urinate more frequently than larger breeds and older dog.
The average healthy dog will produce approximately 10 to 20 ml of urine for each pound of body weight per day.
Ideally adult dogs should be allowed outside to relieve themselves at least 3-5 times a day.
Feeding adult food will rob your puppy of important nutrients.
Four feedings a day are usually adequate to meet nutritional demands.
Large breeds should be fed unmoistened dry food by 9 or 10 weeks; small dogs by 12 or 13 weeks.
3–6 months: Sometime during this period, decrease feedings from four to three a day.
