So after a quick calculation, I realized that to feed my dog a high quality dog food, kibble, (I'm not in to the whole raw thing at all) it costs me about $0.34 a day, so about $125.00 a year. My little girl weighs 8 pounds & eats about 2/3rds of a cup of food per day. I feed Bailey Acana Pacifica. How many of you are jealous?? LOL!
The point I'm trying to make here is, many people feed their dogs lower quality food because its cheaper but, they don't realize that their dog eats more because it is full of "fillers. It probably costs the same amount over a 1 year period to feed a high quality food (as they usually eat less) as it does to feed a lower quality food.
Just wondering what PF members feed their dogs and roughly, how much does it cost you per year?

Wow I'm jealous! Mind you I have a Spoo so he's going to eat more anyways.
I got him 8 months ago and am dealing with allergies, so I'm trying different foods out constantly. I'm on grain free Now. Which in my town is about $60 a bag. He's not a big eater, Maybe 2 cups a day (he's 27'' and only weighs 45 pounds! Don't know when he'll gain weight!)
But I buy the 25 pound bags. it *May* last a month, but generally not... SO I'm looking at $720 a year. And don't think this will be the food he stays with, which means it's only going to get more expensive :( I don't know what kind of foods to try-I'm not into the raw food thing. I mean I've never tried it but I'm vegetarian and the sight of all the raw meat would probably make me sick, I'd rather stick to good quality kibble
I have 2 lowchen, I will have a poodle soon. I feed raw and make their food. It is roughly $1 per pound and they costume a total of 13 ounces a day. Total $296 per year. Not bad for all human grade food that I would eat.
Ugh, I wish you hadn't made me think about this I feed my spoo Nature's Variety pre-made raw, with some RMB's here and there. The 3lb medallion bags are around $18 on average, and contain 48oz each. My spoo eats 10oz per day, so thats $3.75 a day, $26.25 a week, $105 a month, $1,260 a year. I guess that's a lot less than a child of equal weight would cost to feed
