    It's all just trial and error with any dog, they all have different metabolisms. I feed my 5kg Crested twice as much as I feed my 10kg poodles and I just weighed them all today and they are almost the exact same weight they were a year ago (give or take a few grams).
    I once saw a tiny JRT eat a whole kilo of offal in 2 minutes. But that was after she gave birth and had a hysterectomy.

    1kg of meat + 6 cups of kibble!!

    But seriously. Halve that. My Borzoi have on average half a kilo of meat a day - usually mince but it might weigh slightly more if contains a lot of bone material. With that they either have 3 cups of kibble, or the same sort of quantity of rice/veges etc.

    If they had straight kibble without meat (as they do sometimes when travelling etc) it would be five cups a day.

    They would only be eating more than that if needing extra weight etc, and accordingly it would be less if they were getting chubby.

    Even the most active Greyhound fosters we have had eat less than the 'Zoi, and they are a smaller dog on average so if you work off half the given quantity to start with and then possibly reduce if needed you should be on the right track.
