As puppies grow they require more food just like us humans do, this requirement reduces when they reach their adult life stage and therefore they are fed less, otherwise if we continued feeding at the same rate they would become overweight.
Puppy feeding guides are based on the expected adult weight of a puppy in order to provide a more accurate feeding recommendation. If the feeding recommendation was based purely on the puppies current weight, the breed size, age and growth phase would be unknown, making estimations of the feeding requirement unreliable.
Sometimes, it is easy to be confused by the expected adult weight ranges. If your puppy is expected to grow to be approximately the weight between two weight ranges, for example; your puppy will grow to around 10kg and the weight ranges say 5kg – 1okg or 10kg – 20kg, then how much should you feed? The range should be viewed as the average of the weights within that range so 5kg – 10kg could be thought of as 7.5kg.
