WELCOME TO THE FOOD GROUP - This group was started in an attempt to present well-researched and FACT-based information on the amazingly complicated and confusing issue of feeding our dogs. There are also many issues we would like to explore. We thought it would be helpful to put all of these questions, information, and feedback into one place here on DK where everyone can find it, contribute to it, ask questions, and learn together.
WE ASK THAT YOU NOT POST ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRODUCTS FOR WHICH YOU RECEIVE ANY TYPE OF COMMISSION OR COMPENSATION. THANK YOU.
IMPORTANT-PLEASE READ "FOOD GROUP GUIDELINES" BEFORE STARTING A NEW DISCUSSION.

How often and how much should I be feeding a 11wk old doodle weighing about 9lbs? Bag says about 1 1/2 cups a day. So I've been giving 1/2 cup 3x a day. Does that sound right?

LOL, okay well that explains it and it's good to know it isn't ingredient related. Thanks! 

Comment by Karen & Jackdoodle on June 8, 2017 at 4:31pm

Okay, now I know why. Only Allyson can add anything or edit the list because she started the discussion. I'll have to redo the whole thing when I have a chance.

Comment by Karen & Jackdoodle on June 8, 2017 at 4:29pm

Probably because I forgot to add them, lol. Doing it now. :)

Comment by Ricki and Tara (doodle) on June 8, 2017 at 4:24pm

I found several discussions about Earth Animal No Hide Stix but no discussion about their quality. They are "made" in the USA but I know that can be misleading. Just wondering why they didn't make it to the recommended list?

This discussion has a lot of links to other discussions with cost comparions, all are older, but might be what you're looking for:

Gotcha, thanks Karen!

Comment by Diane, Hurley and Sidney on May 30, 2017 at 9:31am
Hurley is a large ALD. He has always been slim and never weighing in over 51 lbs. when he is wet he looks so skinny as of I never feed him. But the truth is Hurley eats only when he is truly hungry and may eat twice one day and only once the next day. He isn't into treats. All his blood work is perfect. The vet says he is in great shape and just not a big eater.
Comment by Karen & Jackdoodle on May 30, 2017 at 9:31am

Hi Stephanie, this one is in our featured discussions, but it's several years old, so the info is out of date. We haven't had a recent cost comparison discussion in quite awhile. http://www.doodlekisses.com/group/thefoodgroup/forum/topics/food-co...

Comment by Stephanie & Charlie on May 30, 2017 at 9:17am

hi! I'm trying to find the post/discussion with the chart of food cost / portion size? I've found a couple discussions that have a few, but I remember seeing a chart that had a ton of different brands on it. Can anybody point me to that direction? Thank you!

Comment by Nancy, Ned, Clancy, and Charlie on May 29, 2017 at 10:24pm

Haley, Ned weighs about 28 pounds.  His weight has varied by less than a pound since he was 8 months old (he is 9 years old now).  He monitors his own intake, recently refusing breakfast and eating only at bedtime.  If offered, he will consume treats, but still self-monitors.  He has a more poodle build (i.e. skinnier) but is so fluffy, no one can tell how slender he is.  The vet thinks he's perfect.
