    Question How Much Food Does Your Dog Eat....

    Just wondering how much food you feed your dogs, and how many times are they fed each day... and for what breed of dog

    I have a husky, and she only eats one big dinner at night time, around 7pm.. and I give her at least one treat a day

    I have had other breeds of dogs before, that were such piggys! Well compared to Arwen!

    Bull Terrier : 1 cup of dry food and a bit of mince mixed with it - OR one chicken frame

    SBT: 2 cups of dry food, bit of mince or 2 frames (am in the middle of playing around with it, she is 5 soon and the last few weeks i have noticed her getting a bit fatter, think she is finally slowing down!!)

    Madeline gets 2 cups of dry food in the evening, although she's a guts and would eat all day if I let her.

    Griffen is given 4 and half cups but how much he actually eats varys day to day. Some days he'll finish it all others he'll eat half or none at all. He's given 30 mins what ever isn't eaten in that time is taken away

    I use a washing powder scoop as my measuring cup.

    Bailey gets 3 scoops in the morning and 3 at night. Plus treats, mince and other goodies

    ETA: Bailey is a APBT cross

    Inca gets three feeds a day still at present.

    Early morning, lunch-afternoon, and then late dinner.
    Brekkie is meat, usually with something mixed in, like an egg or a dab of yoghurt etc. Lunch is chicken, be it wings, legs, quarters, 1/2 a carcass, necks, whatever I've pulled out of the freezer. Lol.
    Dinner is meat. Mince, beef, lamb, offal, yes even pork.


    At 6 months she will be fed only twice a day.

    Jethro (whippet, hard to keep the weight on) - 2 x chicken neck morning, 1 scoop kibble and bone or mince mix for dinner.

    Millie (whippet, gains weight fast) - one chicken neck morning, 1/2 scoop kibble and 1/2 scoop mince mix

    BG (Blue heeler) one chicken neck morning, 1/2 scoop kibble and 1 scoop mince mix

    Tom (emaciated foster blue heeler) 3 x chicken necks 5am, 2 x large dog biscuits 7am, 1 x large piece fish 9am, bone 11am, mince mix 1pm, 2 x large dog biscuits 3pm, tripe (or similar) 5pm, 1 scoop kibble and 1 scoop mince mix 7pm, chicken frame 9pm. This of course is an extreme meal plan and he will be dropped off it after a week, but for now he needs all the nutrients he can get, and this is vet advised.

    I am a big believer in breakfast and dinner for dogs, just make sure you don't feed your dog as much for dinner if she is having breakfast.

    Most of our breeders get a cup, or more depending on size (Tibbies, Iggies, Whippets, Poodles) of bickies once a day, they get meaty and boney treats too.
    My pups get bickies to grase on and meat and yoghurt twice a day. And our family dogs usually just have bickies bowls to eat when they want and meat and bone treats.
    I would not advise that any dog that has issues with eating is left with uneated bickies. Its not a good way to develop a food drive. But our dogs dont need any more drive than they have or they would all be fat!!! lol

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    My boys all get half a large can of wet a day, plus a decent scoop of dry. (Science diet you buy from the vet.)

    My girl is a very finicky eater, very sensitive stomach, so she gets some biccies and some mince daily.

    Cath, a great way to gauge how much your dog should be eating is by your dog herself. Looking at her body structure and watching how much she comfortably eats and when are great guides.
