Not sure if you're feeding the right amount of food? We've got you covered.
We’re very proud of the fact that Sundays is unlike any other dog food you’ve fed before. But we also know that this can make the early days of feeding a little confusing.
For starters, it’s air-dried. This not only means that the food is shelf stable, but also that it is nutrient dense. Because every bite is so packed with nutrition, you’re likely going to feed less–and in some cases much less—than you are used to.
We want to make caring for your dog as easy as possible. So, take a look at these helpful feeding tips before you get started and fully transition your pup to their new favorite food.
How Do I Measure the Serving Size?
A cup of Sundays is different from your usual measuring cup. A US baking up holds 8 ounces of liquid. But when you fill a baking cup with Sundays, it measures to about 3.5 oz worth of food.
Here’s another way to look at it: a teaspoon of fine salt is twice as heavy as a teaspoon of coarse salt because the larger granules means larger air gaps. So the full size pieces of Sundays are like diamond kosher salt in this example, whereas the smaller pieces could be compared to the fine table salt.
You can use a dog food scoop or baking cup to measure out your dog’s portion size. But a food scale will give you the most accurate measurement.
How Much Should I Feed My Dog?
You’ll get custom feeding instructions for your dog based on their age, weight, breed, and activity level once you complete the quiz. But as a general guideline we recommend that you feed approximately ¼ cup for every 10lbs of your dog’s body weight, twice per day.
How much should I feed my 10 pound dog?
- ¼ cup twice a day (½ cup per day total)
How much should I feed my 30 pound dog?
- ¾ cup twice a day (1 ½ cups per day total)
How much should I feed my 50 pound dog?
- 1 ¼ cups twice a day (2 ½ cups per day total)
How much should I feed my 70 pound dog?
- 1 ¾ cups twice a day (3 ½ cups per day total)
How much should I feed my 90 pound dog?
- 2 ¼ cups twice a day (4 ½ cups per day total)
