so how much food a day should dozer be getting? hes about 79 lbs, gets a good amount of excercise. he gets to go to his grandparents house and run around their yard ALL day. id say 4-5 days out of the week. how much food should he get? i had a friend told me 2 cups a day..but that doesnt seem like very much at all. im feeding him merrick too if that makes any difference. thanks.
My gigantic red boy, he weighs in at 77 lbs., who is lazier than a turtle crossing the road only gets two cups of kibble a day, and trust me he is just fine...LOL...now my female who is much more active, and we work her fairly hard, she gets roughly two to three cups of kibble, and some steam veggies in the with it, and my two youngst, get two cups of kibble a day, and all seem to be fine, very healthy, and not straving. I believe the higher quality of the food, means feeding less. All of my dogs, all four for the moment, are just fine with the amount, and are not in anyway skinny, or hurting. How much are feeding him now?
Hmmm... 2 cups seems a little light for a dog of that weight. I'm not extremely familiar with all forms of kibble, though. My boy is 55lbs and gets 3-4 cups a day split between two meals, but he is also on a vegetarian diet. I know folks who feed very meaty kibble that feed meals significantly less in size than that.
