Feeding guidelines are very general suggestions.
Actual quantities depend on the overall health of your dog, age and level of activity.
We suggest, to start: Feed the same quantity of our food, as you have been with their old food.
If your dog is a 2 year old athlete or a 15 year old couch potato, feeding requirements will be different, even if both dogs weigh 20 pounds.
When dogs discover the taste our food and feel the effects of our nutrition, usually they want to eat more. They love it! This doesn't necessarily mean they need more. You'll notice their bodies absorb most of the ingredients and they eventually eliminate less waste - that's good !
We suggest you start feeding the same quantity you usually did of your previous food. In any case, here are some rules of thumb for your peace of mind:
If your dog weighs:
Less than 10 lbs, feed 1/2 Large Biscuit 2 x day
11-20 lbs, feed 1 Large Biscuit 2 x day
21-30 lbs, feed 2 Large Biscuits 2 x day

Why is Dogs For The Earth Organic Dehydrated Dog Food good for:
1- Picky Eaters:
Pure, Clean Organic Dehydrated Dog Food ingredients taste better. Processing alters the taste, cell structure, nutritional value and produces toxins. If you have a dog who would rather eat rotisserie chicken but are worried about nutritional health - you have found what your dog has been looking for. Now you can relax knowing not only is your dog getting all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids & proteins but also NOT getting processed food, chemical additives, fillers and added bulk. (By the way, go easy on that rotisserie chicken - most have too much added salt among other things and could be very harmful to your dogs heart.)
2- Itchy Skin:
Itchy skin is either caused from external environmental factors or internal nutritional & dietary factors (sometimes both!) If your dog has itchy skin year round, regardless of the weather or pollen count, chances are the problem is coming from food. Many dogs have allergies to steroids and preservatives found in conventional chicken & meat products used in allergy testing & commercial dog food. Also, bulk fillers: such as grain, corn and soy and processing such as that used in kibble can cause allergic reactions.
If your dog has itchy skin try feeding our pure, clean, organic food that is not processed. Organic meat is clean & pure of allergens. Dehydration is a pure preservative. The benefits can usually be seen after only 1 week and most symptoms ease within a month and completely disappear within 2 to 3 months.

3- Tear Stains:
Maltese, Poodles, Shih-Tzu, King Cavalier are just a few breeds prone to tear stains. Did you know improper nutrition can cause stains? If you have been fighting those nasty embarrassing stains with topical creams and drops that do not stop the source of the stains; you've found a solution. Secretions of dietary impurities often show up thru tear staining. Try giving your dog a pure, organic diet - without commercially processed foods or treats - allow their system to detox and purify itself. Give it enough time for all their internal organs to cleanse and eliminate years of built up impurities. Week by week, month by month you'll notice the difference. Depending on the level of toxins, you'll soon see bright, clear eyes with no staining. Isn't it wonderful?
4- Overweight Dogs:
Lean organic meats without grains or starch or added carbs are essential when feeding overweight dogs. This is a good food for overweight dogs, like our organic dehydrated treats are, it helps your dietary pursuits because it’s made from the leanest beef and fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.
At Dogs For The Earth, we know all about the fun and joy of handing a treat to your companion. We know some dogs measure love by how many snacks they get and how others, with just one look, can tell you they are starving, haven’t eaten in 3 weeks and may not make it through the hour without just one more bite. We have one of those dogs!
