Default Raw amount???

Hi, sorry there r prob answers to this already........ But
I bought some raw food 2day. It's just a 1kg combination pack (to see if they will eat it) & the amount starts at 10kg dogs! So I rang the company & there advise (pathetic I thought) was 2 just put a teaspoon out & keep going like that!!
So I was just wondering how much other people feed??
Ruby is 2.5kg
Pearl is 1.7kg
& Diamond is only about 700g (nearly 9 weeks old)
I hav put a small amount into there bowls but either nobody is hungry or they r all turning their noses up!! So I wil try again at dinner!!
I'm just looking for a rough idea!! Thanks

Are you going to feed the raw alongside their usual food or go 'cold turkey'? (pardon the pun!) If feeding alongside the other food a spoonful sounds about right.
For Ruby, you will need to feed a quarter of the recommended amount for a 10kg dog. So just divide it by four. Give Pearl slightly less, and I would give the puppy the same amount as Ruby but split into 4 meals.
You can always divide the recommended amount for a 10kg dog by ten to know how much to feed per kilo, if you want to be accurate. I worked out (with the aid of a calculator) the exact amount each of my 3 needs at each meal and I have it on a card next to the scales in the kitchen. Mostly I just feed by eye, but occasionally I weigh it, especially if it is something new.
What brand is it? Someone on here is bound to feed it and be able to offer more specific advice.

So for breaky this morning I mashed some of the meatballs (their normal dinner) with the raw food!! Diamond must hav been hungry coz she ate it all, & quite a big serving (3 meatballs & a heaped desert spoon of raw) Ruby has totally turned up her nose & I'm sure would rather starve!! Pearl isn't so fussy!! She ate some of it!!
