|If you buy the premium dog foods you will end up feeding less because they are more nutritionally dense than regular dog food. So, for example when you buy a store brand, you may need to feed 3 cups or more depending on your golden's age and weight. But if you give him a premium brand, you may end up feed way less than 3 cups.
Hunter is 1 year old and weighs about 68 lbs. I feed him Canidae and based on the feeding guide for his weight (50-75 lbs) and age (over 6 months), I only need to give him 2-3 cups. Since he falls in the mid-range, I only give him 2 1/4 cups. Suits him fine and he is not overweight. Goldens need to be lean anyway because of the dangers of dysplasia and other health problems.
