Maddi is about 1.5 years and 75 lbs, she gets 3 cups a day and Chance, 9(ish) months and 52 lbs gets 2.5 cups per day. Both of them get Nature's Variety Raw Instinct.

Any less than that and they get too skinny (spines become visible, etc) and any more and they get a little chubby.

The amount you guys feed is that set in stone or do you adjust?

I adjust odins food based on the amount of excersice we get, on weeks where we gets less I lower his food, and when he get alot of excersice I up it more towards 4...but thats rare

My dogs each get 3-4 cups per day. They are both at healthy weights. Heaven is athletic and lean. Koa is solid and large boned.

Basically I just let their bodies tell me if they're getting the right amount of food. If they get a little chubby I cut back a quarter cup. If they get a little too skinny I add a half cup until they look right and then cut back by a quarter cup. The amount of fat they carry seems to vary seasonally, probably due to differences in activity levels - so I guess I do adjust based on that in a roundabout way :p. But definitely not on a weekly basis.

Bear and Molly are both eating 2 cups a day of DVP Duck & Potato with a little wet food mixed in. I was worried I wasn't giving Molly enough but by the time she finishes her bowl she's full. I know when Bear was her age I was giving him 4-5 cups. But I guess every dog's different.

cups a day

3 to 4 cups a day,
i adjust to how active they are too.
mine are 8 months and 80 lbs each.
1.5 dry with each meal mixed with half 6 oz canned both are welllness brand

I forgot till I saw moose mention it. Mine will stop and leave food if its too much to. So that is why its between those amounts
If they play really hard they will eat more than on a slow day

Bella and Remy both get about 3 cups a day, sometimes a little less if we've given them lots of training treats. We were giving Remy about 4-4 1/2 cups when we first got him to put some weight on him. Now that he's at a healthy weight, we've decreased that amount, and he's maintaining his weight very well.

Moose gets 4 cups per day but he will eat only as much as her wants. This means he eats anywhere between 3-4 cups a day and he is 85 + pounds now at 1 year.
