    we have a highly active 4yr old border collie. She doesnt have a massive appetite.
    She has 1/2 can of natures gift wet tin food and a bowl full of optimum dry food everynight. Occasionally i'll cook up some pasta or rice to add in. She doesnt eat evernight either. She eats when she wants. She's a healthy weight.
    She gets meaty bones once a fortnight if i feel she hasnt eaten much.

    We have a 12 week old German Shepard puppy, he gets dry food 3 x a day (super coat puppy), with his lunch biscuits he has some my dog puppy mince mixed in it and with dinner he has a bit of puppy roll mixed in. As he gets older we will probably start buying the more expensive biscuits cut out the wet food.

    The breeder that we got him from said that they don't need any meat, just dry food, so long as the biscuits have 'complete and balanced meal' or similar written on it. He feeds his dogs Advance biscuits.

    We cook for our staffy, we cook 2kg of turkey mince (its nice & lean) 2kg of mixed frozen veggies & about 3 cups of rice is a big pot then freeze in take away containers so its fresh for her, a normal size container gives us 2 or 3 dinners & enough for bout 3 weeks, then she has dried biscuits through the day aswell, she is very lean & has a lovely shiney coat, she also has fish oil tablets as her treats :-)

    Our two cross breed dogs get dry food, rice with veggies and chia seeds mixed in (they love this), chicken necks and usually and egg on top of their meal.

    They also get raw meat scraps when we have them and raw beef bones every couple of weeks

    We give our dogs the dog rolls. I would prefer to give them dry but out male has a grain allergy and gets eczema from dry food. They also get natural treats and chews as DH's company manufactures these.

    ^^ Same here, but we have a little dog so making batches and freezing it is quite easy - If I run out of food, he gets my dog, or our leftovers!

    Our dog gets dry food for dental care and then bits of meat and veges from my dinner. He also gets leftover veges and rice if I make too much

    We feed our Greyhound a premium dry food. She was on Nutro ($32 for 3kg, would last around 2 wks), but our local supplier discontinued selling it, so we now use a grain free brand called A Taste of the Wild ($50'ish for 6kg, lasts around a month).

    If you pay out upfront for a quality premium dry (not a supermarket brand!), then you save money llong term as the serving sizes for premiums are smaller than cheaper brands, so it lasts longer And they're better for your dog!
