Rumor 7yrs, 40lbs- 1cup/day
Zen 3yrs, 54lbs- 2 and a half cups/day
Gus 1yr (ish), 44lbs- 2cups/day

We are rotating through some food right now, but the main food is always Victor Grain Free. Rumor gets straight Victor, the other two get a half cup to a cup of whatever other food I'm rotating.

My dogs get fed twice a day.

They will not eat their kibble in the morning at all. So they get a treat to hold them over. They get fed around 2 pm and then again after we eat dinner.

Buster gets 2 cups a day and whatever Rudy & Dixie don't finish at the end of the day. So more like 2 and a half cups.
Rudy and Dixie get 1 and a half cups a day. They sometimes won't eat the first feeding because they are weird.

Kobe is 90lb and eats 1.5 cups a day of Solid Gold Hund-n-Flocken.

Yes, yes, I know. It's crazy. He is free-fed, because every time I tried to feed him on a schedule, he actually ate LESS. /sigh

My anorexic little fullfytail.

Bamm (7 years, 45lbs) 1/2 cup in AM and 1 cup in PM
Cricket (2 years, 33lbs) 1/2 cup in AM and 1 cup in PM
Joey (2 years, 40.5lbs) 1 cup in AM with 1/4 canned and 1 cup in PM with 1/4 canned. He is also currently getting 1/2 cup around lunch time.

My dogs are all on Natural Balance L.I.D Rabbit formula right now. Joey gets puppy food (Fromm Gold Puppy) mixed in with his food though because I'm trying to get a little bit more weight on him because he still feels really bony even though he looks fine. He's getting lunch because he throws up if he eats a lot of food so I've found that he does much better if I spread it out between three meals instead of two. The canned food varies. Sometimes it's Merrick, sometimes Natural Balance, Blue Buffalo, whatever looks good at the time.
Joey- Ibizan Hound
Cricket- Mexican Street dog (we think Xolo mix)
Bamm- BC mix
Itztli- Standard size coated Xoloitzcuintli

Trent is around 80 lbs, active for usually 3 hours a day, and eats 1.5 cups of Orijen Adult.

Glad to see he isn't the only dog his size eating so little. I was convinced that he was a freak of nature, but hey, whatever saves me money on food!! Especially with Orijen prices going up the way they do

I don't... Exactly measure. .

Most mornings they get 1/4 cup of kibble. Summer gets 1/4th cup overflowing and mia gets a little under. Right now is acana regionals. I keep between 28-34% protein and grain free but we rotate and usually have a couple brands/flavors. Night time it depends. Some nights it's nothing or a little ground raw or it's ziwipeak used in the form of training kibble. Weekends we do raw/canned mostly. I like the kibble on work days because I can fill up Mia's tray ball that I can adjust to make it pretty hard for her. It will keep her occupied a good hour or so.

Mia definitely needs less than Summer even though Mia is way more active. It's odd.

Eta: Mia and summer are 7.6 and 8.1 lbs respectively. Mia looks much tinier but she's a lot broader built. Summer is really lanky. Mia gets fat easy though

Hank - (approx. 1 1/2 year old Spotty Dog)
Mia CGC - (6 1/2 year old Papillon)
Summer TG3 TIAD - (11 year old Papillon)
