    My pup Deacon is 10wks and I have followed his diet sheet from the breeder, he is meant to be on 4 meals a day, til he is about 5mths... just like my Jamie... but now Deacon is refusing to eat this last meal:confused: He eats everything else with gusto and is happy, active and has a little plump body (not fat.. puppy plump;)) Do you think he would be okay just to have the three meals instead...?

    i generally reduce to 3 feeds around 11/12 weeks then 2 feeds around 16 weeks ,if hes not eating ,hes not eating,i would leave the meal out but if he seems hungry you can always reintrouduce it

    my little one stopped eating 3/4 meals aday at the age of 10 weeks he just decided he was not hungry as he is only a small dog (toy breed ) i think i was trying to give him to much, but he is doing fine on 2 meals aday,if yours is a little one to then maybe you are doing the same, i tend to go with feeling when a pup is concerned if they eat it all and still look for more then keep the meals up if they arent interested take one away:)
