    a 15kg bag will probably last u around 5/6weeks i think.

    my retriever goes through a 7.5kg bag of AG in about 3weeks.

    My two staffie x's are 16kg and 18.5kg and they get through a 15kg sack of food in about a month.

    However thats possibly no use as don't know how much should be feeding a pup!

    If i gave my 'good do-er' what it said on the sack's of most dog food she would be a complete podge.
