For all you Orijen LBP feeders

How much do you feed? I know the amounts from the bag is a guideline, but looking at their website I would have to feed Dakota about 6 cups per day! Seems like an awful lot. How much do you really feed?

I have found that wherever I go, the stupidest drivers in the world have followed me there!

Re: For all you Orijen LBP feeders

I think you should go back and read that again!!!

6 cups a day per the bag would be for a 19-24 month old, with an Adult weight of 130-175 lbs.

GSD should be in the 50-90 lbs and the MAX would be 5 cups!!!
And that is for a 9-14 month old pup.

Re: For all you Orijen LBP feeders

I feed my Dakota 3 3/4 cups a day, divided into two servings. She is six months and probably weighs 60 lbs. I'm watching her carefully as I think she is gaining weight so I may have to cut back.

If you look on the feeding guide on the bag it is different than what I'm used to seeing. You feed your puppy based on what you think her adult weight will be, based on the age bracket.

Re: For all you Orijen LBP feeders

From what I am reading, Dakota should need 2 to 2 1/4 cups right now. With an increase coming up shortly since your pup is almost 3 months old.

Re: For all you Orijen LBP feeders

Ok, so where is the DUH smack your forehead smiley? Yup that is what I get for reading stuff at 6 in the morning! Sry, did not realize the kg were listed 1st! I do not feed this food at this time but was thinking about giving it a try and when I looked at that this morning I thought there is no way I can afford that! Plus given the quality I was thinking that was a lot of food! So, chalk up another stupid post for me!

I went by the feeding guidelines on the back of the back of the bag and never had a problem
