    Everyone's still pretty young so I'm only going through 200 - 225 pounds a month. How much do you go through?

    I have 2 GSDs; an 8yr old that eats a bit over 3cups a day and an 11month old that eats a bit over 5 cups.

    I feed Nutri Source grain free and a 30lb bag lasts a bit over 2 weeks.

    So, a little under 60lbs a month, give or take.

    Kevin, how many dogs do you have and what kind?

    We go through a 30 pound bag of Taste of the Wild every two weeks. We have an elderly Komondor, and 5 active Yorkies. The dogs eat less of the quality dog food than they would of the cheap food.

    15-20 pounds of meat, poultry, or fish, 2-3 pounds of grain, about 10 pounds of veggie and fruit. I just bought 50 pounds of yam and a 20 pound pumpkin for the dogs.

    Feeding 5 Papillons and one Welsh Springer Spaniel.

    About 100 lbs. Used to go through a lot more, but had way more dogs. The food was better quality though. I also make them things like chicken and rice and maybe some veggies.

    I have been buying the 8 pound bags of food and my 9 pound Papillon eats a rounded 1/3 cup a day -- so 8 pounds lasts a long time....maybe about 6 weeks
