The quantity of food you feed should be determined by your dog's activity level.
Here is a general guide based on dog weight:
If your dog is:
5lbs, feed 1/4 cup 2 times a day
10-20 lbs - feed 1/3 to 1/2 cup 2 times a day
20-30 lbs - feed 3/4 to 1 cup 2 times a day
30-40 lbs - feed 1 to 1 and 1/2 cups 2 times a day
40-50 lbs - feed 1 and 1/2 to 2 cups 2 times a day
Cup measurements are loose and not packed.
A good guide to determine if your dog is eating too much or too little is to simply look at her and assess. If she looks heavy, feed less, if she looks thin, feed more.
