Best time to feed puppies?

I feed Heinz morning, afternoon, and night. 2 cups each time he's fed... Should I limit it to only morning and night or morning and afternoon?

So you feed 6 cups a day then? Right?

Some feed 3 times a day, but I never had that luxury. Titan and Athena both got fed morning and night. Before work and a few hours after work. Titan at 4 yrs still eats twice a day.

I did the three times a day gig for months.....then trimmed back to 2 "meals" a day....morning and evening...with a lunch treat thrown in....perhaps a chicken quarter or some cow tail.

If you can, continue with 3 times a day and then at about 6 months (I think - been so long) reduce feeds to 2 times a day. Some people only feed once a day, for adults and juveniles. I prefer to spread out the portion of food over 2 feeds.


if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.

I did a meal 3x a day for the first month or so then switched up to 2x a day. It all depends on the schedule you're able to do

Also is BilJac puppy food for puppies? My pup is really picky I've heard a lot of pups like BilJac cause if the rabbit like pellets and the pure chicken. I also ordered a bag of Fromm and hoping he will like it...

Fromm here too. He loves it. I add a spoonful of Merrick canned and/or plain Greek yogurt.
