I feed a variety of foods, so the bags can range anywhere from 25-30lbs, and it lasts us about 4-6 weeks. I go through 2 1/2 cups of dry food a day.

From the various companies I've looked at that have cups/bag listed on their website/packaging...I would say it averages about 3 cups/pound - some are more, some are less.

28.6lb bag lasts us about 3 weeks.

Gage gets 3.5-4 cups a day.
Bristol gets 3/4 cup a day.
Diesel gets 1 cup a day.

Now in the winter they all eat more and in the summer somedays they don't eat at all.

A 40lb bag lasts me about 1.5 months to 2 months depending on the season.

In the Fall/Winter:

Takoda gets 3.5-4 cups
Beau gets 2-2.5 cups

This is depending on how cold the winter is going to be how fat I need them.


In the Spring/Summer:

Takoda gets 3 cups
Beau gets 1 cup

Takoda looks scrawny with anything lower then 3 cups dumb dog never stops moving and Beau looks like a walking table with anything over 1 cup.

diamond naturals said there is aprox 165 cups in a 40lb bag so it should last a month and 11days.. it lasts 2 and a half weeks.
