The recommended amount of dog food for a Rottweiler is 4 to 10 cups per day. Feed the dog high quality food two times per day.
The amount of food a Rottweiler eats depends on the dog’s age, size and build, metabolism and activity level. A dog that is not very active needs less food than a highly active dog. The quality of the dog food is also important. High quality food provides more nourishment, and the dog will need less food. Always measure the dog’s food and feed the dog twice daily.
If you can see your Rottweiler's ribs, you are feeding your dog too little. If you cannot see a waist on your dog, or if you cannot feel your dog's ribs when placing your thumbs parallel to your dogs spine with your fingers downwards, you are feeding your dog too much.
