    Hello,

    I am interested in knowing just how much everyone feeds their adult boxer, as well as how much you fed them as a puppy. Also, curious as to what type of food you use? Has anyone used the Royal Canin Boxer Formula? If so, did you like it? That's what I am feeding my dogs right now. I am just interested in knowing if I am feeding my dogs the right amount of food for their needs without having them gain weight. Your advice is appreciated!

    There are better foods available over Royal Canin Boxer 26...so I learned here ;<)
    I feed my adults 2 1/2 cups Of TimberWolf Organics that I split into 2 feedings .....as a general rule,growing pups require more food daily.
    If you do a search through the feeding forum here you will find lots of useful info about foods and feeding. Their are other here who will probably offer more extensive information . Good luck

    Every food is different, and every dog is different. There is no black and white rule about how much to feed a certain size dog. You feed your dog how much you dog needs to maintain a healthy weight based on it's needs and lifestyle.

    Generally speaking, I use the recommendation on the side of the bag, and adjust accordingly to each of my kids. Our female usually gets on the lower end of the recommendation because she is a little heavy and somewhat sedentary. Our male, on the other hand, is underweight and fairly active. In his case we feed on the upper end, usually "more than", what they recommend on the bag.

    Your milage will vary.

    Good luck!
