I actually measure Kodi's food, so it really doesn't matter what size bowl I put it in. I want performance, and obesity and strenuous activities don't mix well.

Yeah Karen I bet you're the exception. Sabine recommends measuring cups and a weigh scale to weigh you dog. Pounds creep on easily. Before we know it a dog can gain two pounds. and for a Hav. that's huge.

Thats interesting.

I don't even feed Gucci in a bowl, she usually gets fed with the smaller side dish flat plates

I also use a measuring cup! I was just putting some on a saucer for McGee at the first of the week since he didn't like a bowl and it didn't look like it was enough. I was surprised when I decided to measure it and it was 1/4 cup which was exactly what he was supposed to be getting!

Many of our walks take us right by the vet's office, and we often stop in for a cookie, just so it remains a positive place. So I use the scale there at the same time. Kodi gained about 1/2 lb over the winter, but I think it's because we couldn't go on our long walks because of all the snow. I think it will go away by itself this spring!

Yeah we don't get out near as much in the winter and we have to burn off a little every spring. It's never easy.
