There's kind of a gap between $25 or less and $50 to $100.

My food is $63 per bag (plus shipping) for 40lbs which should last 1 dog about 6 weeks.

The number of dogs that I feed has varied too much (3-5 dogs average) in the last few months to really know how long it lasts but I usually buy 2 bags at a time.

Ah ok, for me there's a big difference in feeding a miniature poodle and GSD lol

Delgado: $69 a month (Fromm LBP)
Jazzy: $20 a month (Fromm Four Star Gamebird)

I spend about $60 per bag and that lasts about 5 weeks, so I guess I'm just over $50 per month.

This doesn't count treats, supplements, bully sticks, etc. though.

Oops, well I did it wrong, then. I have 11 dogs and half a dozen puppies, and I spend about 111$/week on kibble and maybe 20-40$ more on chicken.

Prey Model Raw Diet for Zeke costs roughly 25$ or less a month. I NEVER spend more then 1$/lb, and Zeke gets a little under 1lb a day.

Luther was more high drive/energy, so he was about 40$ a month to feed.

We have 9 GSDs and 1 Lancashire Heeler (he's 18lbs). I buy 3 bags (25lb each) of food every 10 days, so 9 bags a month. The bags are about $50 each so $450 per month.

Currently we only have the two mini doxies to feed and a 40# bag/$25 last 2 to 3 months, so they are cheap. They also get some raw but I have never factored that cost as it is part of our grocery bill. When Maxie was around she would eat a 40# bag about every 6 weeks. When this new puppy comes along I know the food bill will jump again but for the time being I am enjoying the delayed shopping sprees.
