|flhtcui95||Hi, I have been wondering if I should feed my dogs (Maxine was 1 on the 19th and Chief 6 months on the 22nd) once or twice a day and how much? it seems that when I feed later in the evening one (or both, not sure) decide to go to the bathroom in the dining room. If I feed once the problem goes away but there is always food left in the bowls. I feed 3 cups of natural balance fish and potato with half a small can of the same brand. What would be the recommended amount and schedule. (Maxine is high energy, hyper alert, small and about 60lbs thin. Chief is very low energy, let me sleep, tall about 65 lbs but cant see ribs) thanks for any help.|

How would you know it brings out the taste?

I add just a little bit of water to moisten it. Helps bring out the taste too.

Split in half, soak in water, and feed twice daily
Watch his body frame to see he stays trim and fit. If you see him getting
chunky, reduce food. If he is getting too ribby, increase by half cup. Keep in mind that from about 6m-1yo, pups look super awkward and gangly. They will be all legs and ears. Do not over feed the pup. Slow sustained growth is best

If we switch to feeding him twice daily, what do you think is a good portion per meal?
Currently he eats 3 cups total per day.
