How much dog food should a one year old male boxer eat?

Question by skf.kickerr: How much food should a one year old male boxer eat?
I’m in the process of rescuing a one year old male boxer named Zeke. How much should I expect him to eat? Should boxers have specific feeding times or would leaving a bowl with food out suffice?

A one year old dog should still be eating puppy food. I suggest Purina Puppy Chow and follow feeding instuctions on the bag.

  1. IT'S BEST TO LEAVE FOOD AND WATER DOWN AT ALL TIMES. MY 8 MONTH OLD BULL BOXER GOES THROUGH A BIG BAG OF FOOD IN ABOUT 2 1/2 -3 WEEKS.

  2. Thank you for rescuing your new dog. When you feed your boxer, it is best to follow the feeding guidelines on your dog food bag. I believe 12 months of age is the time to start a dog on adult food. An all natural food that does not contain ground corn or animal byproducts is the best choice. Your dog will be more satisfied, receive better nutrition, shed less and make less mess in the back yard. A premium food like that does cost a little more initially, but they eat less in the long run, so it balances out price-wise and is a much healthier alternative for your dog.
    As far as when to feed your dog, I believe it is best to feed a 1 year old boxer twice a day. That way he is on a schedule and his bathroom breaks become regular, too. Dogs thrive on schedules, so don't be afraid to establish a routine for yours. Good luck with your new friend!

    I would ask the people you are rescuing him from how much they feed him and stick to that. I give my dogs their food 2 times a day about 2 1/2 to 3 cups each time. Leaving the bowl out for them to eat would work also. I cant leave food out with my dogs they would eat all day long.

    all dogs are different in eating habits. ask the people your adopting him from how they feed him. what dog food and how much. on the dog food bag will tell you how much you should feed him by how much he weighs also. if your going to change his brand of dog food, dont just change it instantly. mix it half and half for about a week. they can get a belly ache and intestinal issues… my 80 lb lab eats 2 cups of food twice a day.

    Specific times are best – 2 to 3 cups a day if he needs to lose weight or 3 to 4 cups if he at a good weight.

    Congratulations on the new boy…
