    How often do you feed your dog?

    I normally feed mine twice a day,once in morning,and once in the evening.Some say that I should only feed it once a day,ther say small doese three times a day.I've tried all of these and I think she does better at twice a day.I don't feed her one big meal,but two medium size ones seem to work good for her.How often does your dog get fed?

    I feed my guys 3 times a day. It just seems to work best for Brom because he is always hungry! I think that whatever works best for your dog is what you should do.

    The dog guide school instructs us to feed 3 times a day to 3 months, and twice a day to 6 months.

    Many people say feed large breeds more often due to bloat. There is very little said about bloat in the dog guide program,and very few dogs have bloat. Perhaps it is one more heathproblem they try to breed around.

    The Bostons get fed twice a day once in the morning, once at night. Wally is fed twice a day, with a quarter of his breakfast used through out the day as treats. It works for us, because Wally si ALWAYS looking for food.

    I feed twice a day also- 7:15am, and 6:15pm-usually a snack during the day, or later at night-depending on what we have going on.

    My dogs get fed twice a day. On the days I work, they get fed around 7:00 a.m. They get a chew a little while after that..while I'm getting ready for work. I get home from work around 4:30 p.m. They get their dinner anywhere from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. They get a small snack before bed.

    On the days I don't work, just back the time up about an hour or so LOL.

    3 times a day although Lucy wouldn't care or notice if we switched to twice a day. Juno's got a bit of a sensitive stomach and so I worry that, even though at the end of the day she ate the same amount, having a larger meal might cause some upset. Plus she's obsessed with food and would probably not be happy if her afternoon meal were removed lol.

    Feeding can vary alot and it really depends on age and activity level. My seniors eat once a day with a small snack or maybe some treats later in the evening. One of my seniors sleeps 20 hours a day....almost zero activity and bad joints so, just walking to the potty area is not easy for her (more food/more trips).

    I feed my dog twice a day but I have training sessions inbetween breakfeast and dinner. If Charlie does not finish his dinner I just leave it there because, he is a VERY picky eater.Breakfeast during the week 6am (8am when I have off) Dinner is served between 5-6pm.

    Re: How often do you feed your dog?

    We have smaller dogs. Our eskie is 18.5lbs, our mini aussie is 6mo old and 16.5lbs. We feed twice a day, once around 5:30am when getting ready for work and then anytime after 3:30pm. They both get 1/2cup at each feeding. This is just slightly less than recommended feeding by the bag but this is because we do so much obedience training with them that they get a large volume of (healthy) treats. They are both at prefect weights.
