What are Dog Feeding Charts?
|Adult Dog Size (lbs)||Dry Food Feeding Amount (Cups)|
|26 to 50||2 to 2-2/3|
|51 to 75||2-2/3 to 3-1/3|
|76 to 100||3-1/3 to 4-1/4|
|100+||4-1/4 plus 1/4 cup for each 10 lbs of body weight over 100 lbs|
Perhaps the best way to stop the problem is through training and environmental management methods, including:
- Keep the dog's living area clean, including the yard, so there will be no poops for him to pick up.
- Cat owners should keep that litter box clean or out of the dog's reach.
In many ways, canned dog food can be superior to kibble.
They typically contain more meat protein than their dry counterparts.
And they're made with fewer carbohydrates, too.
Plus, due to their air-tight packaging, canned dog foods contain no synthetic preservatives.

Doggy beds and pillows haven't always been around, so wild dogs had to pat down tall grass and underbrush to make a comfortable bed for themselves and their pups.
The easiest way to prepare that night's sleeping area was by walking around in a circle.
The rounding ritual may also have served as a safety precaution.
