Thumbs up Crazy feeding routines, NOT RAW!!

I have been told I have a goofy routine, is yours goofer than mine??? Please this isn't about whats the better dog food just if you think you are goofer than me.

My AM feeding starts with 1 cup of California Natural lamb and one cup of C.N. Herring and sweet potatoes. I take 1 teaspoon of salmon oil with glutamine added and mix it in with the 2 types of C.N.

His PM feeding is 2 cups of Orijen L.B.Puppy. 1-1 1/2 cups of TOTW or Fromms Surf and TURF or ? I pour 1 teaspoon of C.N. coat and skin suplelment over the Orjen.This amount depends on his activity level for the day. I then wait about a half hour and in 1/3 of canned Innova puppy I mix in 3/4 of the recomened amout of powdered Vitys. Then a while later for his treats I give him some raw stew meat or some cooked chicken. I buy both in semi large amounts from Costco and freeze in small snack bags.

It doesn't sound especially weird to me. It sounds like you feed two regular meals then a third smaller meal followed a little later by some treats...the only way that your feeding routine differs from mine is I don't have a third smaller meal.

I think the weirdness may come from the combo of brands - that is what sticks out to me.

A good example for Chris Wild's thread!

I don't know what wierd is! Wish we did have better understanding of how things all work together in this area of care.

I don't have a routine. That is my routine. Usually the dogs get food when they work for it. I have come to believe this increases the value and enjoyment of food, especially in a working breed, but probably in most dogs. The training schedule is not routine so it can happen at different times throughout the day. If there is no training or not enough, then additional food is given in bowl though its not routine.

Often there is a day of fasting or near fasting, but no pattern to that either. Mother Nature is unpredictable and so am I. I watched a show where a dog was not eating well. Once it was put into a scenario of being active and of having to work for food, the food drive problem resolved itself.

Alternatively, I have heard a routine is good and that may be so.

My friend got a Border Terrier puppy and was worried about him because he wouldn't eat his dinner. She started making a cheese omlet for him every night for dinner. Then, much later, she found out that her female Airedale was feeding the puppy out of her bowl.
