Hey everyone. I have a 4 1/2 pug and currently feed him 3/4 cups of Blue Puppy Food per day and am thinking about increasing that amount to a whole cup. The package says to give 1/4 to 1 1/4 cups per day for puppies up to 20 pounds (which is pretty vague).

Is there a right time to increase how much you feed your puppy?
I'm just trying really hard to make sure that he is the right weight.

His weight doesn't matter so much as his body condition. Even on pups it is good to be able to feel all the bony points easily but not see them. Unless you can easily feel his ribs, shoulder blades, hip bones and chest point he doesn't need any more food. When he is running around wiggling you should be able to just see the shadow of his last couple ribs.
