all our redboy dogs get between 5-6 cups in winter and 2-3 in summer.
The back of the bag says 3 cups a day.

Does the summer/winter thing matter if my dog is the same amount of lazy all year round? lol Not to mention we're in South FL so it's also 90 degrees here year round

Every dog is different. Odin is 75 lbs and gets 1 cup 2x a day of Acana Regionals Wild Prairie... Banshee is in the low 30s and gets the same amount of Diamond Naturals Chicken and Rice. But then again, she has genetics on her side. Lol

I too feed 2 cups a day. 1 cup in the morning 1 cup in the evening. Treats in-between I currently feed BB Wilderness Salmon. When she gets a tad older (8+ months) I may start her on Orijen Red Regional.

It is all about the quality of the feed. If you feed a quality kibble, you obviously can feed less. My 5 month female is ALWAYS hungry....but that's bc she's a little fatass trapped in a genetically lean muscular body

Also, take into account how much exercise they get. My baby is crated 7-8hrs a day so she doesn't need all that food for energy. She uses that enegry/calories for when I get home and take her on an hour or two walk/jog/play time. On the weekend though, she is very active, in which case, I could get away with feeding a cup more with little to no fat gain.

I don't go by the back of the bag I go by how my dog looks. He used to get 3 cups, but he was getting a bit too pudgy for my likes so I cut him back and I think he's at a perfect weight now.

Christy27 is an unknown quantity at this point
I usually give out 2 cups and sometimes add a little veggie.
