Since changing my dogs food, I measure out what the bag suggests. They eat it all and would eat more if I offered it. Am I not giving them enough, or is it that they just love this new food?
Fair, how many cups of kibble does your mastiffs eat a day?
Maybe I am just over analyzing as always.

I have nothing to contribute, I just wanted to point and laugh because I go through less than a cup of food in a day between my two dogs.
And on a serious note, Holly would eat herself to death if I offered it. Never trust the dog.

Actually both of them, Dante and Apollo. And then I have the senior golden,75 pound, and the senior shepard mix 65 pounds. And then Jinx I could use some advice on all of them.
They ate twice a day.
Okay...Uma is exactly 150 pounds and is three years old. She would get 3 and a half cups per sitting or 7 cups per day.
Orson is still growing and is in between 160-170. He would eat 4 and a half cups a day a sitting equaling 9 cups. During growth spurts he was up to 5 and a half cups per sitting or 11 cups per day.
Oso believe it or not is pure Great Pyr and only eats 1 and a half cups per sitting or 3 cups a day.
Dante can stay at the 7 cups, but Apollo, since he is still growing I would boost him to a total of 8 cups a day and see if he is still hungry. As I learned from this forum take the food away if they do not finish it all. That will give you a back ground as to what to feed in amounts the following day.
I can't help you with the golden and the Sheperd. Those two breeds are out of my league.
Wouldn't it be easier for you to go with a "light" food for all of them? If they will all eat the same I would go with that.
It's crazy at feeding time here. Two now get raw and two now get canned with a smatering of kibble if they so want. (which is usually no)
Love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
Them some BIGGGG dogs!!!!!!
Holy cow....Hudson gets a cup of kibble and a quarter can of moist. Noodle gets 1/4 -1/2 a cup of kibble.
YOu guys have horses!!!
Owned by Noodle, Nalla, Squeek, Lucius, and Bella....RIP Hudson my love I miss you.
