Tell us about yourself: I have a beautiful Dutch Shepherd named Apache. He is about a year old. I am doing obedience/agility since he was young, and recently have been working with him for SAR. I also have a small terrier mix who hate everything that moves except me, and the family also has a Doxipoo and cats. I raise many farm animal as well.

What food are you feeding? Quality kibble that lists meat as the first ingredient? Or Old Roy?

The amounts on the bag are just a guide to what you should feed. You might need to feed a little more or less. Keep an eye on the dogs weight (not so much as in using weight scale - but how does it look? Too skinny, too fat, just right?)
