Food question again SORRY

I have one, only one complaint or rather concern amount of food required to keep weight on. (Really I have a couple of trialling concerns but the light at the end of the tunnel is still shining training wise LOL).

Yank does everything at a million miles per hour training wise. Naturally he uses a lot of calories. BTW, he is great in the house and in his kennel run at night, no pacing.

He is nearly 2 years of age. He is fed a diet of raw meaty bones and 7 cups of Eagle Pack Power per day. Vet checks have him, fit as a fiddle.

Does anyone else need to feed so much dry food to their dogs????????

I'm glad someone else has the same problem! My dog is eating me out of house and home. I run with him a few miles every morning then train every night I can. He was consuming 8 cups a day!! He is a long legged dog and good size. He weighs 88 lbs and looks lean, but not too lean. I'd say he's at the ideal weight. I have now backed him off to 6 cups a day, he is approaching 2 years old. The bag still says 4...I don't know if we'll ever make it!

The vet says he's a perfect shape, tones down nice after his ribs.
