Newfoundlands eat 32 to 40 ounces of food a day. Newfoundlands should eat 8 ounces of food a day for every 25 pounds they weigh, and an adult Newfoundland dog typically weighs around 100 pounds.
Newfoundland puppies eat the following amounts of food a day:
- 15 to 23 ounces after they are done weaning.
- 25 to 28 ounces at 3 to 6 months old.
- 28 ounces at 6 to 12 months old.
- 30 ounces at 12 to 24 months old.
At 24 months, you should feed your Newfoundland as if it were an adult.
Although Newfoundlands are big dogs, they don’t require significantly more food than other breeds of dogs do. In fact, you need to watch your Newfoundland’s weight very closely. If you overfeed your Newfoundland, your dog will develop joint and other health problems due to its size.
Also remember, puppy food is different from the food you will feed an adult Newfoundland dog. Please buy appropriate food for your dogs. The adult dog food can be too big for puppies and can cause harm to their teeth and gums.
