In summary, for adult dogs, feeding German Shepherds about 2.5 to 3.5 cups of quality kibble per day, twice a day, is a good starting point. Modify amount fed as required based on your dogs size, weight, age and overall daily activity.

Unfortunately, this often suppresses the growl—eliminating his ability to warn us that he's about to snap, literally and figuratively.
