My dog weighs 50 lbs and his dose is 900mg of EPA, so the dose for a ~70 lb dog should be about 1200mg. Just make sure to check the mg in EPA, not DHA.
Just be sure it contains named fish on the label, some don't. And be sure of no flavoring, or lots of other added ingredients. A lot of them do. I use one from Walmart, for humans too, and its pretty basic.
