I’ve seen a couple boxer threads on here, so I thought I’d come to the hive and post this question. How much dry dog food do you feed your boxer each day?
We took our boxer to the vet and she asked how much she is eating. I told her we give her 3 cups in the morning and 2-3 in the evening… She was super surprised and said that we were feeding her way too much and we need to watch that she doesn’t start gaining weight. Our boxer is super active, poops 3 times per day, and is actually on the skinny side right now.
We just switched her food from a lower quality brand to Iams, so it got me wondering if we should cut it down. She is just so fit right now, I don’t want to not feed her enough. So Bees, how much dry food do you feed your boxer each day? What brands do you use?

I have two: one that practically gets fat off air and one that’s 4 nd very lean, he’s just starting to fill out. The first gets about 1 cup twice a day, the second about 1 3/4-2 cups twice a day. Yours is getting more quantity than mine but honestly Iams is still pretty crappy, so nutrition/calorie wise it might be closer to equal. Boxers are supposed to be lean/skinny though, so I’d just keep an eye on her weight.

Ha ha, yea, Iams is still pretty low-quality, but it is better than the old-yeller or whatever we had before. She is 4, so still young puppy like in behavior. I’ve cut her down to 5 cups from 6 a day, but she eats it and would eat more.

My boy is 11 months approx 60lbs now and is on taste of the wild it is about $50 for a 30Lb bag and lasts a few days short of a month. I highly recommend it though! he has serious poop problems and is sooo stinky if he even gets a little bit of crap food in him so it has to be gluten/grain free. I give him 1 1/2 c in the morning 1 1/2 c in the evening and 1/2 c at night (3 1/2c total a day) he is very fit and healthy and is full of the typical boxer energy!
