    Pepsi a poodle x cocker, free feeds biscuits, home made dog bickie for breaky and get a spoon of commerical wet food in the evening. if we are training she might also get some bits of cheese, apple or chicken. She weighs in at around 9 kg, she is solid but not fat, you can see her ribs when when she is clipped.

    Frosty is a blue heeler x

    She weighs about 23kg at the moment and is quite musclely. Could possibly be ok with being slightly lighter but it's a PITA to have a borderline 20kg dog - because the worming and flea meds all start and stop on 20kg.

    I feed 100gm of Nutro Natural Choice Chicken and Rice plus 300ml of home made caserole twice a day - usually after exercise, but sometimes the evening meal is 2 hours before exercise - depending on how hot it is and how late I plan to go walking. I try to feed the evening meal around 6:30pm because later is prone to requiring 2am toilet stops. Is awkward when I am out from 5:30pm to 9:30pm because of sport or whatever. Prime dog walking and dinner time.

    My vet recommends feeding a desexed dog 1/3 less than what the packet recommends.

    I find what Frosty eats and how much varies on a daily basis depending how much zoomies she does on her walks and other things. I pay attention to how fast and how much she eats and whether she's looking for more when she's finished. Sometimes I put more in a treatball for her to eat at a slower pace. Sometimes I put what she didn't eat into the fridge for later.

    Bella (8mth old Maltese/Shih Tzu) has between 1/4-1/3 cup Eagle Pack Holistic for breaky & same for dinner.
    Charlie (8mth old Pug x Cav) Has about 3/4c Eagle Pack Holistic for breaky & same for dinner. Half his food goes in his bowl and half in his treat ball (to keep him occupied and out of Bella's bowl)
    We've only switched to the Eagle Pack about 2 weeks ago so still trying to get it exactly right. Bella is easy, if you give her too much she just won't eat it. Charlie will eat anything, so we have to monitor his food intake pretty carefully so he doesn't get chubby....

    We have staffords and I feed my own raw barf diet.They get roughly 2% of their body weight. Litte more or less depending on if they are looking abit overwight or underweight. Our 6 month old gets 5%+ of her body weight depending on if she is still hungery or not.
    So Ody is on roughly 650g of raw, Kimba is on 450g, Cynda is on 550g and Phina is on between 500g and 600g.
    They get fed twice daily, the morning feed being their RMB and the night feed being their meat/vegie and suppliments meal. They also get treats during the day, mainly when I am training.

    At the moment Leo(3month old english mastiff X) is feed 3 times a day, he gets an egg and roo meat for brekky, Lunch is about a cup of dry food every now and again tuna or sardines mixed in with it, Dinner can be chicken/beef/lamb with vegies and rice.

    He will generally munch on anything he can get from us aswell, apples,cheese and yoghurt are his fav. He gets a bone maybe once a week, or every other week.

    I have bag of treats in the cupboard aswell. I generally give them to friends/family that are visiting. Also to help with training.

    was good reading through what other dogs eat.. i am currently trying to find a good medium for Nelson, now he has put on some weight and looks sturdy! he was so thin when we brought him home from the pound two months ago, but i think he got too used to all the food we were giving him, i was feeding him a few times a day! so now he gets a small pack of muck in the mornings at 4:30, my husband feeds the cats then, and the little dog must have something too! that became habit when he was first home, and we put his vitamin powder in it. i feed him a chicken neck later in the morning, and late afternoon i give him a smallish portion of cooked veges and rice, (i cook a whole heap of it and freeze it) and raw meat, either chuck steak, or gravy beef, or whatever else is cheap that week at the supermarket. he gets a little kibble when i give the cats some as well, altho that amount is greatly reduced now.. he gets a lot of exercise, so i don't think he will end up fat. he does get a few treats too.. i use a tiny kong, and put these treats in it that have mint and parsley for better breath and he loves them, forgotten the name of those, no packet left, i do halve them tho.. also he loves those 'Supa Natural' biscuits, one a day, and tosses them around joyously first and plays 'puppy paws' with them before he settles in to crunch..

    edit: i forgot the breed either a miniature or toy poodle crossed with a Silkie... he was just over 5 kilos last weigh in, and that was with the harness and lead. (the cats are slightly larger than he is)
