    No 3 cups sounds perfect for a dog her size.

    Diego, my intact male lab is 70 pounds, medium energy, 4 yrs old and eats 3 cups a day. He eats The Pride 26/18 variety.

    My English shepherd Luna (an aussie with a tail) eats 1 cup a day and she is 8 months old. If I feed her any more she looks like an eggplant. She eats 1/2 cup 4 Health lamb and rice and 1/2 cup the pride 26/18 mixed.

    Ollie is a boxer/am.bully. He is 10 yrs old, about 75 pounds and he eats 2 cups every other day(M W F S, and 2 1/2 on the off days in between, T T S) if I were to give him 2 1/2 cups every day he'd be a LARDO. He is eating 4 Health lamb and rice.

    My boston terrier, Mr. Bean is 10 yrs old, about 30 pounds and eats 3/4 cups of The Pride 26/18.

    Lastly my toy fox terier, Benny, he eats about 1/4 cup of The Pride 26/18mixed with a tablespoon or so of wet food (what ever high end cans are on sale that week).

    We feed all the dogs once a day around 8 pm. The bigger dogs get a large sized milk bone first thing in the morning (the smaller guys get alpo snaps), then another treat around mid-day (like a piece of bread, a beggin strip or medium sized milk bone), then once the kids get home they're always throwing alpo snaps to the dogs

    What breed or mix or mutt is your dog?

    Harleigh is a 14 month old Labrador Retriever (mix?)

    How much do you feed your dog?

    1 cup of Acana Grasslands in the morning and .69 pounds (+/- a few) of raw at night.

    On the nights she doesn't get raw she gets 1 3/4-2 cups of Acana Grasslands a day, depending on how active she has been that day.

    What kind of dog food do you feed?

    Kibble: Acana Grasslands

    Raw: Anything that she'll eat (which is everything pretty much)

    How heavy is your dog?

    70 pounds.

    Cooper- 3.5 year old boxer. Lots of energy (but he doesn't get as much exercise as he should) and he eats 1 cup in the am and 1 in pm.

    Abbie- 8 month mix. 35 lbs. Lots of energy (same as Coop though). And she gets 1 cup in the morning and 1 cup at night.

    Murphy- 8 month 20lb french bulldog. Barely any energy haha. He gets 2/3 cup in am and 2/3 cup in the pm.

    That's between TOTW, Premium Edge, and Nature's Variety. Within the next few weeks, they should all be switched over to just TOTW!

    the entire crew eats TOTW. And all of their portions are divided into two meals.

    Aesop is a 2 yr old Chow, 74 lbs. He eats 2 1/2 c total per day. Some days he skips a meal, by choice. He's not a big eater.

    Julian is an 8 1/2 yr old Yorkie (oversized) 9 lbs. He eats 1/2 c per day, in two meals.

    Ginger is a 13 yr old Poodle/Chihuahua mix, 9 1/2 lbs. She gets a total of 1/4 c per day, in two meals

    Grimm is a Shih Tzu/who knows what mix 18 lbs. He gets just over 1/2 c per day.

    Newt is a toy Poodle, 4 1/2 lbs. She gets about 1/4-1/2 c per day as she is impossible to keep weight on.

    What breed or mix or mutt is your dog?
    -Bentley is a Lab/Shepherd/Collie/? mix and Harley is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

    How much do you feed your dog?
    -Bentley gets 2 1/4 cups a day and Harley gets 1 cup. At night, they get some canned mixed in.

    What kind of dog food do you feed?
    -I use Fromm's. Right now they are on the Gold but I buy a different variety each time. They don't have any issues switching flavors as long as I stick to the Fromm brand. For canned, I usually use Wellness but occasionally switch if something else is on a good sale.

    How heavy is your dog?
    -Bentley is 60.5lbs and Harley is 20.8lbs. They are both in perfect shape (nice tuck, visible waists, can feel ribs/hips/spines easily).

    Kimma is a 5 1/2 month old Finnish Spitz

    How much do you feed your dog?
    She gets a total of 2 cups of food, spread through 3 feedings a day, though she's never eaten all of that... (She gets lots of treats from training/bully sticks/other chewy things mixed in to her diet)

    What kind of dog food do you feed?
    I'm in the process of transitioning her from Purina Pro Plan Selects Puppy to Blue Buffalo Puppy, so she will get less food per day, as well

    How heavy is your dog?
    She's right around 15 lbs, and should grow to be about 25 lbs

    Re: How much do you feed your dog? (Just for fun)

    I have a 3.5 month old English setter, he was very skinny when we got him about 3 weeks ago. Have been giving him 4Heath Puppy Formula (Tractor Supply), 1.5 cups twice a day. Seems like he is putting weight on pretty good, had him at the vet 2 weeks ago he was 15 pounds. He is now about 22 pounds, am I feeding him to much ?

    Thanks

    What breed or mix or mutt is your dog?
    Coton de Tuléar - male - just about to turn 3 years old

    How much do you feed your dog?
    1/3 cup for breakfast and 2 small handfulls for lunch and dinner - so I
    guess about 2/5 of a cup to maybe 1/2 cup


    What kind of dog food do you feed?
    Innova (Regular)

    How heavy is your dog?
    about 12 lbs

    Activity?
    Moderate I suppose - he gets 2 decent sized walks a day along with
    some physical play indoors and the energy I make him expend digging
    the tightly rolled up blankets with his dinner out from under his bed.
