Twice a day also. And probably will even after she is a year old when the vet told me once a day is fine.

I used to feed twice a day, but since Aiden started tracking for meals it's been once a day.

I fed my pup 3x's a day til about 16 weeks. I did do a midnight snack during that transition so early morning bile barf was eliminated.

For adult dogs, I feed 2x's per day, and reward a meal at the end of a track or use it during training(hard when feeding raw).

We feed 3x a day because of the puppy. Once she is ready we will go back to twice a day.

Twice a day, usually at 7am and 7pm.

My little dog just free feeds - she's never been a big eater and hasn't ever had weight problems.

Most days Stella prefers to have 1 large meal in the evening, but there are some days when she wants a lunchtime meal and another one for dinner. I can read when she is hungry for a mid day meal and I feed accordingly.

I feed 2x a day...or I should say, I put food in the bowls 2x a day, but how often they eat varies lol.

Our Rotti eats his right away both morning and night.

Our older GSD sometimes eats, sometimes doesn't, some days he eats both meals, sometimes one, sometimes none. We have stopped worrying about him, he seems to self regulate very well and medically he is fine.

Roo seems to be on her very own schedule LOL. She always eats all her food by the end of the day, but she seems to be a grazer not a 2 meal a day eater.

Depends on the dog and how active. Coke eats 1 meal and then I give him a little "snack" later on because the GSDs usually get 2 meals since they are more active and I'm not comfortable feeding them 4-5 cups all at once!
