How much should a full grown Newfoundland eat?

I had a St Bernard who ate 20 Cups of dry food a day - as an adult when done growing he ate about 14 cups per day. He weighed 140 so maybe that would be about the same for a Newfie

The amount of food a Newfoundland should eat each day will depend on the quality of the food you feed. I have 5 Newfoundlands and they eat a high quality grain-free dog food. They are all adults and eat 4 cups of food every day, two in the morning and two at night. But, if I were to feed them a basic, Wal-Mart store bought dog food, they would have to eat an average of 9 cups of food a day to get the same nutritional value. Remember that Newfoundlands, like all dogs, are carnivores. Your local pet store should carry an abundant supply of grain-free dog foods for you to choose from. They do cost more per bag, but you will use less in feeding, so the food will actually last longer.
