Default How much do your dogs eat daily?

Em: 3-4c Wellness CORE unless she's looking thin, then it gets bumped to about 5c, raw when I have access to it
Copper: 1c Wellness CORE
Shadow: 1.25c Wellness CORE
Deke: 2-3c Wellness CORE, depending on his activity level
Bloo: 1.5-2c Wellness CORE, raw when I have access to it

What about your dogs?

Journey and Newton get 1.5 cups a day, Cricket gets a little less (around 1.25) of rotating brands of kibble. I believe they are on Blue Wilderness right now. They usually get a raw chicken neck or back (in place of a meal) once or twice a week.

I like all of your thread topics, Julee!!

All of my dogs eat the same amount of whatever food they're on, typically. Only time it changes is by the season. Right now we have diamond, but we typically feed Earthborn Holistics. I just ran out of money this week. XD

Sir eats 4+ cups a day (however much more depends on his appetite- as much as he wants)
Frag eats 3 cups a day
Tug eats three cups a day
Recon eats 2.5 cups a day

I'm really surprised that Tug eats so much! Frag would eat less if I could make him think he wasn't hungry all the time.

And this is all in addition to whatever biscuits and training treats they get throughout the day. I no longer cut back meal portions for training unless it was very heavy treat training; agility/nosework/dock diving don't rely on treats much anymore, so they aren't filling up.

All of mine eat Acana or Orijen and I rotate through the flavours.

Gage gets 5cups in the winter and 4 in the summer. Some days he gets a raw meal substituted as well.

Bristol gets .75cup all year.

Diesel gets 1 cup all year.

I am not a big treater, if I go through 2 boxes a year I'm lucky.

Teagan is 16lbs and eats about 4-8 ounces of food per day, depending how much I take out for her and what we did during the day. Like how energetic she was during the day. She is the perfect body condition, so it seems to be working out for us

Hudson gets as much as he will eat. He is not a real fan of 'food' so however much he'll eat I'm happy with. It is normally:

- canned food frozen in Kongs, hooves, bones, etc. However much I can fit in. These normally aren't a favorite, but he is locked in his crate all day so he can deal.
- a frozen 'soup bone' so it has a little meat, but mostly just something to chew on. Occasionally I'll toss a chicken or turkey neck in there or some turkey wings.
- whatever amount of dry kibble I can get into him. Normally it's about 1/4 - 1/2C of Fromm's Large Breed puppy. Occasionally I'll mix in some Wellness CORE or CANIDAE kibble.

We skip around with food a lot because of Harlow's UTI issues. Right now, we are trying Earthborn Holistics, but I really like Acana Wild Prairie.

Harlow (63 lbs, 2 years old): 3 cups/day

Rider (45 lbs, 1.5-2.5 years old): 1.75 cups/day.. Sometimes skimpy if I'm training
