werealljustfuct: some fast questions!

Hi! I had a few questions and I'm new to the weimie breed and I'm having some food issues. My weimie is about almost 5 months now, and he is still trying to eat...EVERYTHING in sight if it's food he's all over it. and the vet assures me he is at a good lean weight but I dislike seeing his ribs a bit. how much should I be feeding him and how often? I've never had a weimie before and he really isn't my dog he's a service dog in trianing and I love him to bits. Another thing is he has a allergy to something in dog food it makes him break out in a HORRIBLE!!! red itchy rash and I was wondering if you had any advice on what kind of dog food to switch him to?. Also does anyone have any advice on the breed for me? I know I should have researched a lot but I had two days notice I was going to be raising a weimie and not a standerd poodle. But I love my boy to bits and he is by far the smartest sweetest boy ever!. I know it's a lot of questions but is your dog ery hyper? like I was warned he would be....because he's a lazy dog...unless he's running and playing with my puggle [who is actually over weight >.>] then he's being lazy and curled up on his dog bed or beside me watching tv.

I love him so much he has made me fall in love with the breed. If he gets released form the service dog program we will be adopting him and he is just such a joy to have around the home. Sorry to ask so many questions but I don't know anyone else with a weim in my area!.

our vet only said to use Sience diet and I have heard horror stories non stop about them so I won't use them.

thank you so much!!!. I was worried I would be over feeding him if I up'd his food amount. I will try that and yes I had to inform my lady next door no he is not to skinny that he's a healthy and active puppy and the vet said he is a great weight. They didn't believe me and called animal control and said I was starving him....It was very awkward. But he is a very lazy sweet dog most days thank you for your advice it is well used!. I will put up some cute pictures of him later so everyone can see him!.
