All of mine eat twice a day. Morning is 8:30A-ish, dinner is 5P-ish.

P (almost 2 years old, I haven't weighed him but I think he's about 20lbs) is on Verus, the only one eating it because it has grains, and he has big old grainy poops which I hate because Auggie wants to eat them, but he finally finally for the first time in his life gained weight on it without getting the craps all over my house!!
He eats 1.33 (repeating of course) cups a day.
On TOTW the most Payton could eat without getting sick was heaping 2/3rd cups a day.

The rest are on TOTW bison:
Auggie (7 years old, 15lbs) eats 1/2 cup a day.
Georgie (almost 2, 12lbs) eats 1/2 cup a day.
Pepper (5 years old, haven't weighed her recently either but I'm guessing 18lbs) eats 2/3 cup a day.

Everybody needs to get on a scale, especially Pepper and Payton, but my good scale has been lost somewhere. I should just ask for a vet scale for my birthday...

Payton - Sharp Dressed Man NA NAJ NF CGC

Both of mine are on Orijen adult, and both get a scoop from a 1/3 cup twice a day. Meg's (8 years/36 lbs) is a bit of a scant scoop, Gusto's (2 years/ 26 lbs) a bit rounded.

Izzie, 13lbs, 4 years - 4-5oz per day

Depends what sizes of chicken necks come in the bag because I'm not cutting them up for her lol. Sometimes she gets 2oz of necks sometimes she gets 3oz.

I'm so glad to see that other dogs get as little food as Rowan! I regularly see dogs at work that are half his size and get way more than he does, and they're not even fat. I thought he just had the crappiest metabolism ever, lol.

Rowan (6 y/o, 40 lbs) gets 1 1/2 cups of food once a day
Riff (2 y/o, 48ish lbs) gets 3 cups of food, also once a day

They both eat Taste of the Wild, the fish formula.

Riff - Australian Shepherd/GSP mix 3/5/2011

Frodo (7yo, 29.5#) 2/3 cup per day OR 6oz of raw
Siri (5mo, 9.5#) 2/3 cup per day OR 6 oz raw

It cracks me up that they eat the same amount of food per day
Siri could stand to gain a bit of weight IMO, but if I feed her more right now she just poops more. And it's not like she is emaciated, so I'm not too worried about it.
