    Agree with DA. You have to look at your own dog and decide what it needs to eat. Of course a lot of this is dependent on their exercise/energy levels, age, breed etc.

    Lots of adult dogs don't eat as much as you would think.

    My adult setter eats 3 cups dry/day broken up into two meals and a couple of bones/week. Dry food is often reduced on those days.

    I wouldn't feed Hills, Advance, Eukanuba etc if you paid me!

    Batty gets either a chicken carcass or 1 cup of chicken mince at night and Evo kibble in the morning. I'm happy that he's down to two meals a day .

    Oh! He's a crossbreed rescue. Mum is an ACDxKelpie

    She seems content with just the one meal a day so that doesn't worry me

    If she seems fine with that, and her body weight and muscle formation is good, all sounds great with what you are doing.

    Boss gets 3 cups of dog nuts a day. But we leave his bowl down all day. He is a grazier feeder. So in other words... he will eat now and eat abit later on. It works for him.. Get gets chicken necks once a week

    Roly gets 1 cup and Lady gets 2 cups of kibble in the evening.
    And then any extras from dinner or whatever.

    Floyd- Staffordshire Bull Terrier 9.5 yrs old, 16" at the withers & weighs between 16-16.5 kilos depending on if it's "hibernating" winter or "active" summer.

    250-300 grams of raw meat & vegi mix 7 - 7.30am

    I can of sardines with a bit of raw spinach or 250gram tub plain yogurt or 4 chook necks around 4 - 4.30pm.

    I refuse too feed my dogs any type of commercial dog food.

    Sometimes i will give Floyd 1 strip of a "Smacko" as a treat, but i prefer to give him bits of apple, peach or mango as treats.
