When I go to feed the girls with my bucket of food, they jump up and down and bark at each other, and I let them out one by one, and sometimes a few youngsters together to run in the fields, then I put down their food, while the others are yelling, "Me next, me me me!!!!"
After I get everyone fed, watered, and all the kennels clean, I will usually groom a couple, and maybe do something where I leave some out to run around again.
In ten+ years, no problem with bloat. I think bloat is more a genetic thing, and if your dog is prone to it due to its ancestry, it makes sense to be more careful.
