How Much Food Does Your Dog Need

You know your dog loves to eat. Sometimes you may even wonder if your furry friend would eat the entire bag of dog food if you allowed it.

This inability to stop eating when full can make it difficult to determine how much food your dog needs each day. While you can refer to the labels on the bag of dog food for a general idea, the information isn’t specific enough to determine the needs of your specific dog.

The amount of food a dog needs includes factors such as breed, age, activity level, size, and the type of food you’re providing.

Determining the Proper Amount of Food

Most puppies need to eat three times per day until they’re eight weeks old. After that, you can put them on a twice-per-day feeding schedule.

Figuring out exactly how much food to put in their bowls can be a bit trickier. Thankfully there are a number of online calculators available, where you can plug in pertinent information about your dog, to see how much food he needs.

Many dog owners also don’t realize the impact the type of food you feed your pet has on portion size. The first ingredients listed by many major manufacturers is often cornmeal and meat-based byproducts, which aren’t intended for consumption by dogs. Ironically, the best tasting dry dog food ─ that with first ingredients including chicken, turkey, beef, or fish ─ is also the most nutritious.
