    I feed my 33kg Rottie a large bowl of dry food in the morning and a small bowl of raw food at night. She also gets a big bone every second day.

    Some dogs are just gluttons and will always look for food!

    How is her weight? If her weight is good, then she's just being greedy It may also help to slow down her eating as well, if they eat quickly their appetites don't get satisfied and they constantly look for food.

    Hi billyj, Misty just eats anything she can find, we can't leave anything down or she is on to it, I must admit that she is getting better now but I hate to think what she has swallowed in the past, she eats grass like a cow or sheep, she reaches up in the fruit trees to get the old fruit that is left, I even found her chewing on a lemon she had pulled off the tree, she is a worry but we love her. However having said all that, we had trouble with her liking normal dog food but we have found a good one that she likes so I don't have to cook all her meals now.

    Feeding smaller amounts more often will fill the dog up quicker than one or two big, main meals.
    How much are you feeding now?

    ?
    I agree.

    Depends on what food she is eating, and as Myf has said, HOW MUCH?

    Some dogs are just really food-orientated too. Perhaps your dog is like that.
    I assume all worming is up to date and the dog's health is tip-top?
