  1. Nice video. We use a measuring cup. Storm is disappointed with the pitiful amount she gets now that she is spayed. 🙂

  2. Great video, we use a measuring cup also but I think John feeds more than me….and we would not go through the dog food as fast if I would remember to pick up Gamblers food when he doesn’t eat it before I leave the house as Nellie is getting 3 meals a day sometime. She knows how to work the system and is smarter than me.

  3. We always use a measuring cup to make sure we are getting the right amount of food. Lady feed us a little lower than the recommended amount to account for the treats we get everyday!

    • That’s perfect – I do the same, especially on days when they have a training class or some other activity.

  4. Fantastic video! As you know, we feed raw and it was getting very expensive as the puppies grew up. We switched to a brand that is better quality and a more affordable price AND we joined a local raw food co-op. We save over $250 a month. Also, buying in bulk whenever possible saves too. We’ve started buying many things online and invested in Amazon Prime to get the free shipping. This is great for heavy products that have shipping that’s nearly the same price as the product.

  5. This is great information. We, as pet owners, do overfeed our pets and we do not even know it. We just fill their bowl up and let it go. If we effectively monitor their diet and food intake, we could be helping our pets as well as our budget.
