Mini Aussie Feeding

by Alison Smith

I recently rescued a 9 month old Mini Aussie and I am not sure how much I should be feeding him. His name is Bode and he is a 25 lb male. I feed him twice a day and I was feeding him about one cup of puppy chow per meal but I feel with his amount of energy that maybe he should be eating more? Also he likes to go and eat my Chihuahua's small breed food once he is done with his own. Is he still hungry?

feeding and weight

I have a mini aussie (16 months)-weighs 37.7#-what should I do to trim him down? I've cut food down to 2/3 cup X2 a day and he exercises at will—outside with another young dog at times. Does anyone have a certain brand of dry dog food they prefer that might help?

I feed Dry Diamond puppy food to my Mini Aussie. He seems to like it real well. He does not eat it all at once; he tends to eat in shifts. He is approximately 14 weeks old and I give him a little more than a cup a day. He also gets treats during the day

I feed my mini Aussie doodle natural balance, Fat dog. He really works for treats and is a smart dog however has gained a lot of weight. Fat dog keeps them in check but he has not been losing weight.
