Default Count The ZiwiPeak Squares .....

I thought it would be a very interesting exercise for those of us feeding ZiwiPeak to count the number of squares that constitutes one meal for our Chis.

I know many of us don't or can't follow the feeding guide, and I know many of us "go by eye" when it comes to monitoring our pups' weight.

If you could list (a) how many squares you feed for a meal and (b) the weight of your dog, that would be fantastic.

Mine won't be a good example because none of my dogs love their food regardless of what it is and some days they'll just look at it and walk away so I have no way of knowing how much each of the 4 is ultimately eating.

The figures people give should NOT be taken as an example of what quantity to feed your dog because there are so many varying factors such as energy vs. exercise level etc. etc.
