These feeding guidelines are suggested only. Feeding amounts may vary by breed, activity level, temperament and climate. Amounts are recommended for an average dog with normal activity. Adjust feeding guideline according to your dog's age, activity level, and environment. Adult dogs: Feed either once or twice a day. Working dogs: Based on the work your dog will be asked to perform, the nutritional requirements will vary accordingly. Older dogs: As your dog begins to age, his energy expenditure will decrease. Decreasing the amount of food accordingly will allow for the maintenance of proper body weight for a less active dog.
