How Much to Feed?

An average dog should be eating 2.5% – 4% of their body weight, whereas active dogs can eat between 4% – 6% of their body weight. Puppies can eat up to 10% of their body weight, depending on breed.

For Example:

LARGE DOGS: An 8 year old, 80lb German Shepherd with lower energy can be fed up to 1 ½lbs of a food split into two meals per day. This includes meaty necks, bones, treats and his food.
COST: For a “ruff” look at 7 days you would be feeding about 10.5 lbs of food which would average out to $43.89/week depending on the blends you choose to feed.

MEDIUM DOGS: A 50lb, 2 year old Boxer with high energy can be fed up to 1lb of food split into two meals per day. You may also feed meaty necks/bones as a snack throughout the day on top of his regular meal to suffice for his high metabolism
COST: For a “ruff” look at 7 days you would be feeding about 7lbs of food which would average out to about $29.26/week depending on the blends you choose to feed.

SMALL DOGS: A 10Lb, 12 year old Chihuahua  who only goes on a 15min walk per day would eat about ¼ of a pound split into 2 meals per day.
COST: For a “ruff” look at 7 days you would be feeding about 1.75 lbs of food which would average to about $7.32/week depending on the blends you choose to feed.
