Co$t to feed a "Mal" -v GSD?
Excuse me if I'm posting this in the wrong section, since it's kinda-sorta related to diet.
For those of you that own a Malinois, would you say it costs less, pretty much the same, or maybe more than what it costs to feed the average GSD? As a general rule (I'm painting with a broad brush here, I know), it's it safe to say that the "average Mal" is probably more active than the average GSD? In that case, it seems likely to me that the Mal would burn more daily calories and likely require the same, or maybe more food, than the GSD. But, since the Mal weighs less maybe he eats less as well?
What's been your real-world experience? How does your food bill for your Mal compare with your GSD?
