I feed 2x a day and amounts are split between feedings

Joey (70lbs 9 months) 6 cups
Casper (115lbs 9 yrs old) 3 cups
Ronon (80lbs 8 yrs old) 3 cups
Mira (50lbs 6 months) 3 cups
Jack (20lbs 4 yrs) 1 cup

Some days we skip one kibble meal and replace with raw. Kibble meals gets various toppers- canned food, homecooked, yogurt, cottage cheese, can mackeral, etc.

Rotate kibbles. Joey gets either Redpaw 32 or Victor Hi Energy
Casper is eating grain free 4Health now, but we rotate with Nutrisource grain free Lamb, Holstic Select Anchovies, as they don't bother his allergies
Ronon and Rocky have been eating Annamaet GF Lean
Mira- eats whatever the rescue provides which the last bag was merrick whole earth farms
Pongo NOW Senior- does the best on this food over anything else we have tried.

Chloe (6 years, 45 pounds) eats 1 heaping cup of TOTW Wetlands a day.

She was eating 1 cup of 4Health Salmon/Potato when she was fat, but now that my sister's puppy is around we've had to bump her back to a higher calorie food and give her a bit more, as she and him play pretty much nonstop all day long.

Cynder (7 years old, 30 pounds) eats 1 cup of Diamond Naturals Chicken and Rice a day. May bump it up to 1 1/3 cup if we start walking like I want to.

Gracie (4.5 years old, 10 pounds) eats 2/3-3/4 cup of California Naturals Venison/Potato formula a day.

Cooper (3 years old, 6 pounds) eats 1/4-1/3 cup of Diamond Naturals Chicken and Rice a day.

All get limited to no treats.

Logan gets about 4-5 cups of Victor GF Salmon
Gavroche gets about 1.5 cups of Victor GF Salmon.

Logan seems to be getting very bored with food, though. I used to rotate, but because Logan has a bit of a sensitive stomach, they've been stuck on one formulas for several months. So I got a medium bag of 4Healt Whitefish/Potato and Logan ate that very well until the last couple days. So now I got a bag of 4Health Turkey and Potato, and he eats that well. But I suspect after a few weeks he'll stop wanting that to. Basically, I need to go back to rotating, or my dog will never gain/maintain his weight.

Gavroche will eat anything.

Dance (6 years old, 29lbs) - 8oz of raw per day.

Journey (7 months old, 39lbs) - I don't always measure, but roughly 12oz of raw per day plus usually a lot of treats (training) and often a bone or a PB Kong. So I don't really know haha. But she looks and feels good.

Ripley (4 years old, 81lbs) - 2 1/4 cups of Orijen 6 Fish per day, or 24oz of raw per day.

Keira (5 years old, 58lbs) - Just under 2 cups of Orijen 6 Fish per day, or 16oz of raw per day.

The Dobermans usually eat Orijen 6 Fish nowadays as with their skin problem they're supposed to eat a lot of fish as it's supposed to help, but sometimes I feed them raw instead. And prior to being told to feed them fish by the dermatologist (which has definitely helped), they'd been on raw. Dance and Journ eat raw like 99% of the time but if I've forgotten to thaw something, then they get the Dobes' kibble or canned (whatever I buy - Fromm, Ziwipeak, Instinct, Go, etc.) or dehydrated (NRG, Ziwipeak)... basically, whatever I feel like giving them.

Kiba (8.5yo, 15lbs) gets 1 cup/day
Stryder (7yo, 24lbs) gets 2 cup/day
Lincoln (4yo, 15lbs) gets 1 cup/day
Charlie (2yo, 32 lbs) gets 3 cup/day

I will feed them a bit more or less depending on the day. Charlie can eat all I give her and not gain, while the others just look at food and put on the pounds!! They get Earthborn grain free and we switch around flavored as well as using those with grains.

Henry (6 y.o, 32 lbs, somewhat active) eats between 1.5-1.75 cups a day of Earthborn, the coastal catch variety. I split it between 2 meals.

I keep him lean but he would eat until he popped.
