Smile How much does your boxer eat in a day?

I thought this would be fun! I'm thinking of switching foods soon, or supplementing more nutrients in him, and I'd love to hear what other people are doing!

State the age and weight, and what your dog eats and how much!
Bonus Question: favorite healthy treats!


Merckx is 14 months, 55lbs, Blue Wilderness Kibble, 5-6 cups/day

He loves raw carrots, apples and frozen yogurt banana pops!

Bosley is 14 months (just about 15 ) , 55-60 lbs, Orijen regional red kibble, barely 3 cups a day (if I'm lucky).

He loves any type of meat and cheese!!! (he knows when you open the cheese package)

Gus is 11.5 months (will be 1 year in exactly 2 weeks!) and weighs about 63 pounds.

He is *currently* on Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice, about 4 cups a day I'd say. I am researching other options right now including RAW. I need to find something better for him that my family can afford.

As far as healthy treats go, Gussy loves baby carrots, frozen yogurt/peanut butter/honey, and cheese.

Cujo is 9 1/2 months 50 - 55 lbs and is fed Kirkland Puppy, he gets about 4 cups a day with yogurt. He loves carrots, apples, bananas, raw potatoes and of course peanut butter & cheese.

***Edit to add - he also loves roasted chick peas (he got into some the other night) - I DO NOT recommend these as a boxer treat, if you think regular gas is bad...

Question Question...

This may be a silly question but when you guys say cups.. do you literally mean like measuring cups?
Because I sure hope not... We feed from the bag and also free feed, meaning their bowl always has food in it and use a tall drinking cup to scoop it out and into their bowl and they go through about 8 cups of those a day between Rocky and the 2 shih-tzus. Most of it is just Rocky because the little ones do get table food. Because I seem to always cook "extra" lol
