how many cups per feeding do you give?

My 10 month old dog weighs about 70 lbs. I've been feeding him 2 cups of food 2x a day, but he seems to be looking for more food when he finishes. If I put another cup in, he'll eat another cup....he's a bottomless pit (pun intended) which is why I had to stop free feeding my other dog when I got him. He's such a food hog that I have to crate him to feed my other dog because he'll push her away from the food and eat her portion too! Basically the question is, is 4 cups a day enough???

Cain gets 2 cups a day. He always checks Shebas bowl when they're finished, but I know he is getting enough. He's just a porker lol

If he is still hungry you can add green beans to his diet
they are a meaty fiber vegetable that expands in the stomach to make you feel fuller

start with a 1/4 cup 2 x daily

I bet he would love this. He loves veggies. Do you cook them or feed them raw? Mix with the kibble?

I feed a half cup in the morning and a half cup at night. My boy is 56 lbs an when i feed more everyone says he is fat. I steam my green beans but it doesn't matter. I also give them as a mid day snack after our afternoon walk I don't mix with kibbles.

You can also add chia seeds. Adds protein and expand in the belly to take up room to make them fuller. Almost no Calories and great source of protein. (For humans too lol) to Maintain his weigh my in blue buffalo I had to feed 3 cups a day. Amazing what good kibbles can do!

read the back of the bag. it will tell you how much to feed by weight, a probly tell you to adjust for winter and summer. these are just guidelines to go by. once you start seeing how he looks you can adjust one way or another.

we got some that get two cups in summer and 4 cups in winter.

all our redboy dogs get between 5-6 cups in winter and 2-3 in summer.
