Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, www.dogster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

Cheers,
Dogster

    Depends on age. How much they weigh and what brand of food you are feeding.
    .
    Your best bet is to ask at a pet food store... they can look at the bags and see how much should be fed per day.
    .
    One rule of thumb is the higher the quality of food usually the less you have to feed them.
    .
    And to give you an estimate. My Cattle dog weighs about 55 lbs. she gets 2 (8oz) cups of food per day with a few treats. My Huskey weighs 90 lbs. He gets 4 (8oz) cups, but often times he doesn't eat it all. The Cattle dog on the other paw will eat everything in sight.

    Also keep in mind your dogs activity level.
    A couch potato will not need as much as a dog who is very active or out in the cold a lot. A shepherds activity level would probably be about as much as my husky who is mostly an indoor dog. Unless he is a working dog then he might need a little more
