    I dunno... whenever we get those annoying Jehovah's witnesses.
    I think we are drawn to dogs because they are the uninhibited creatures we might be if we weren't certain we knew better. They fight for honor at the first challenge, make love with no moral restraint, and they do not for all their marvelous instincts appear to know about death. Being such wonderfully uncomplicated beings, they need us to do their worrying.-- George Bird Evans

    Once, and only because I leave for work before the crack of dawn and they're never hungry that early in the morning.

    Sometimes once a day, sometimes twice day, sometimes more, some days none (the day after they eat raw they don't eat).

    Once a day. She eats a few bites of it throughout the day until it's empty.

    Twice a day and a snack before bedtime. This way they don't have "empty tummy syndrome" in the morning.

    You don't mention your dog's age or breed. I feed my adult dogs once a day; puppies are fed 2-3x depending on age.

    Re: How many times do you feed your dog a day?

    I feed my dogs twice a day....large dogs should be fed twice a day because eating too much at once can give them bloat, and small dogs should be fed twice a day because they can get low blood sugar if they don't eat often enough.

    Re: How many times do you feed your dog a day?

    Good question & interesting reading the answers, as I've wondered how often I should feed my 13 week old Boston terrier/Min Pin mix.
    I'm now feeding him 3x a day. I hope that's what's best for him. I've just recently started that & he's not quite used to the "schedule" yet, previously I was just feeding him several times a day.
    Is it true that smaller dogs need to be fed more than just twice a day becuz of their smaller systems, or am I wrong about that?

    My older dog has always had food available. I now realize that was NOT the best thing to do for him. He's pushing 14, so I wont be changing his schedule at this point.

    Twice a day but she doesn't always eat first thing, so sometimes the second meal is quite late. Dunno if that's bad or not - anyone know?
