    Hi, I’m planning to bring home a male dobe. Before bringing him home I would like to calculate how much would his spendings be per month and be prepared for it. It would be extremely helpful if you can give me a brief outline on how much a male dobe eats (in kg or lbs) per month?

    It will depend on what you feed as well as activity level.

    Your vet should go over this with you when you take the pup in for his first well-visit, if they don't....then ask.


    Our boys get Merrick healthy grain....on Amazon $56.00 a bag for 25 lbs.

    Our older guy (5.5 years) isn't overly active unless we motivate him and is prone to weight gain if we don't keep him moving and count every calorie of everything that goes in his mouth. He gets 3 cups a day spread over a 14 hour period, along with various fresh fruits and veggies

    Our younger guy ( little over four years) gets the regular 4.5 cups a day with the fresh treats also. He is on the move constantly, and if we don't keep an eye on him..he will drop weight.

    I don't even want to do the math on what it costs us, LOL.......as it is my husband swears they are more expensive than our three kids were.

    Most welcome.

    It's strictly an example, to give you a basic idea of cost.

    You'll be better suited to get an opinion from your vet.

    There are different dietary needs at different ages and wrong age formula food/too much/not enough can have a drastic effect on a puppy's health and how they mature into adult dogs.

    Every dogs different. Different activity levels, calories in vs calories out. I feed 2.75 pounds a day (with a raw diet). Kibble would be 4 cups a day.

    so it depends on what you feed, if you notice the dog is too skinny you add food. If it’s getting overweight you cut food.

    What do you plan to feed your dog?

    I should have added up there, expensive doesn't mean best. We use what we use because it is what our first guy was getting when he came to us.

    My husband says at the price we pay.....what goes in should come out as gold bars loaded with diamonds.
