I think the amount they need heavily depends on the quality of food they are being fed. The higher the quality, the less they need in quantity.

A little less than 2 cups per feeding. Dobes are best fed twice a day to help prevent bloat.

If I add anything, then the kibble amount is reduced.

Parker mainly eats Natures Variety Instinct and Orijen 6fish.

Older puppies can eat more than an adult dog or at least as much.

It depends on which food I am feeding them, right now it's about 2-3 cups a day, but I split the feedings up to morning and evening.

I think it depends on the quality of food, body type, and level of activity.

Chase gets 3.5 cups daily split up for AM and PM feeding.

It really depends on several factors, including, but not limited to: 1) the food you feed; 2) the dog's activity level; 3) the dog's natural metabolism.

I have two females, one a mutt (2 1/2 years old), one a GSD (9 months old), who both weigh just under 50 pounds. The mutt, Ilka gets about 1 1/4 cup of kibble twice a day, and is nice and lean. The GSD, Leo, was getting the same amount, but seems to be a tad thin (hard to tell with all that hair, but I feel more rib than I'd like), so I've upped it to 1 1/2 cups twice a day. Of course, Leo has severely underweight when I found her 6 months ago, and has always been a challenge to feed properly.

I've just changed the kibble I feed, so those amounts might change, depending on how they look. When I've used a lot of treats for training, I cut back on the kibble.

I agree that it seems to vary from dog to dog. Metabolisms, activity levels, size of the dog, etc. will all play a role. Plus of course the food you're feeding, and whether the dog is actually doing well on that food or not (regardless of quality).

My dogs all eat raw now (Dance has been for a long time and the Dobermans just switched a week or so ago), but when they were eating kibble Keira was getting 2 cups per day and Ripley was getting 3 cups per day. Both were eating Acana. Both dogs are also fairly active.

Both dogs ate more when they were intact as well. Keira was eating about 2.5-3 cups per day and Ripley was eating 5-6 cups per day. Their metabolisms slowed way down after spaying/neutering.

Surely this depends on the cup size?? But I feed Odin just under a full cup of Dorado Exclusion twice a day, plus a tin of fish once a week. Daily pigs ear for whilst I am out at work and about a handful of dried Omena fish for treats when we are out on his walks.

My oversized boy eats anywhere from 3-4 cups a day and is 90+lbs. He just has a low metabolism.

My 'normal' sized boy is about 75-80lbs and eats a bit more than 4 cups plus an inch or more of red barn roll

Well, everyone said it very well... a "cup" is a standard measuring cup, even if that's not the utensil you use to measure it. The type and quality of kibble, as well as whether you add any 'wet' food, extra meat, vegies, etc., also impacts the amounts, as do the dog's activity level, natural metabolism, the climate (animals in cold climates need more calories to maintain body temperature, just like humans), etc. A lot of us feed our adult Dobes twice a day (puppies need to eat more often), because it's healthier on their digestive systems, and also may help avoid bloat. There are a lot of variables, so the best idea is to know your dog very well, observe their appearance, condition of coat, energy level, stools, etc - if the pup is growing, happy, active, has good poops, seems bright and cheerful - well, keep up the good work, and add to the amount fed as needed. If he's hungry, you'll know it - he'll finish his food, then try to eat the dish, or pester you for more.

Tali (female, 4.5 yrs old, ~60-lbs) eats up to 2 cups per day, no more, plus 2-3 tablespoons of cottage cheese, some shredded chicken, and supplements. Plus training treats.

Fiona (female, 3.5 yrs old, ~75-lbs) eats around 3 cups per day, sometimes more, plus 4-5 tablespoons of cottage cheese, some shredded chicken, and supplements. Plus training treats.

They eat Acana and are pretty active. And they get raw bones and bully sticks as treats a few evenings per week.

Koa - male - just over two years old - ~70lbs - Orijen 6 Fish in the morning and Orijen Adult for dinner - 1.75 cups each feeding - high metabolism, super active, he burns off nearly everything I give him.

Right now he's actually looking a bit thin to me, so we're going to start adding some egg to the routine. He also gets a 12" bully a few times a week and training treats.

Elza is 3 yr-old female and eats Eukanuba nearly 4 cups a day. I calculated the food amount according to the label (based on the weight). In winter, I feed her full 2 cups per meal for two times a day.
If she stays all day home, I feed her less I always check her excercise amount.

Jones will be 4 in March.

He is being fed Earthborn Holistic, and gets fed a little over 2 cups a day (1cup am 1cup pm)

He is very active and is a small svelte 65-70lbs somewhere in there at any given time...

He also gets training treats, and rarely a little of whatever I eat :p

Two cups of food a day, split between AM and PM feedings, plus raw bones. Griffin eats Fromm and is an active 80lb dog. Large dogs should be fed twice a day and at least one hour after hard exercise to avoid bloat.
