Feeding that TCUP pup……..
Last week I received a mail from a Lady on my waiting list wanting to know how she will know how much to feed her Teacup puppy, she does not want to overfeed…..
Overfeeding is impossible. Feed that baby as much as it will eat. The pup once you get it, should be fed four times a day & some more if necessary. Breakfast , lunch, dinner, before you go to bed around 10 and when very young or very small, during the night.
People imagine that because a teacup is in the vicinity of 200 odd grams that it eats 2 or 3 kibble(doggie biscuits – royal canin) at each meal. Pro-rata to a normal sized yorkie, that baby eats a lot more. NEVER limit the food intake rather offer too much food than too little. The pup must be given its food, food should still be in that plate when it has finished eating. If the plate is empty, you are not offering enough food.
The dog is genetically the size it is, you can feed it every hour – every minute for that matter, it is only going to get to the size it is genetically meant to, so remember, if you limit the dogs intake of nourishment, all you are achieving, is the exactly same size of dog, however, the one that is fed correctly, will be well covered, and the one that is starved, will be a walking skeleton…..
I trust the owner of any TEACUP will be feeding regularly, and as much as that tiny little baby will eat. I do not believe you can overfeed any tiny pup.

I repeatedly tell interested folks, who want a teacup that the TEACUP the genuine Teacup, is a very hands on baby to rear, and once an adult it does not stop there either. MAKE very certain the teacup is for you.
I get inundated with mails, phone calls, about parents wanting a teacup for their daughter, child, NO teacup is suitable for ANY youngster, teenager, varsity student. IT is a Lady’s companion, and that Baby may as well be glued to its owner. NO staying behind or left with the Doggy Nanny. If you do not have the lifestyle to take that baby everywhere with you, DON’T purchase it in the first place
