Titan has always been on 2 feedings.. since he was 8 weeks old. We never did the 3 a day because of our schedule and time constraints. He is still on 2 a days and doing well!

Mine is 15 months old and still fed 3 times a day unless something unforeseen happens. I use the mid-day feeding as a chance for him to get out and stretch his legs as I'm at work all day (my son normally feeds him at mid-day).

My schedule allows for 3 feedings but she picks at it so I think I'm cutting it out and do some training at that time using her food.
