Ricky's Vet recommended 3/4 to 1 cup per day (depending on the type of food) when Ricky was a young puppy. You want to see them gain abut 1/2 to 1 pound per month up to 12 months. He recommended that a puppy be fed three times a day. As a young adult (over 12 months), twice a day is usually recommended.
So, in your case, you want to feed 1/4 to 1/3 cup, 3 times a day for a puppy. When Ricky was a puppy, we fed him 3 x 1/3 cup per day PLUS another 1/4 - 1/2 cup of training treats throughout the day (he is an energetic male and he easily burned off the additional calories!). Ricky has grown up to be a healthy, energetic, strapping 14+ pounds as a 22 month old young adult male. We will maintain his current weight (at his Vet's recommendation) for the balance of his adult life.
Enjoy your puppy!
