  • I feed puppies twice a day and adults once a day. But, having said that, I also give them a certain amount for the day and if they eat it fine, if not, fine. Some days they eat more than others. As long as they don't miss a bowl full more than a day or two, I generally don't worry.

  • We have a self feeding bowl in the basement and I think he eats at night, b/c I never see him eat in the daytime...and he's not skinny so he must eat.

  • How old is your dog? Just one meal a day for my pug who is 9 months old. I put her in the crate with her food so she eats as much as she wants then takes a nap. Otherwise the other dog would eat it.

  • she is 4.5 months old. i guess i am expecting her to be like my last dog(also a lab) who ate like a hoover and i could grab her empty bowl within a few mins. this lab puppy is not a hoover with food.
