    Banjo gets fed twice a day when we get back from our walk- the times vary depending on how long we've been out for. We find that if he's hungry on his walk he's much better behaved and is happy to go home! ;)

    Morning feed is after I have done the horses, so anytime between 7.30 and 8.30. Second meal is around 5 and Candy still gets weetabix and milk at 9 oclock. I was surprised to see that some pups only get fed twice a day.

    I'm ducking for cover as I type this but this method has worked well for both my dogs. I feed Henrick as much as he wants to eat and he has food down all the time, before anyone asks he is not even slightly overweight and he eats the reccomended daily amount for his age/weight, he still enjoys his food but he browses and doesn't wolf down a bowl full at a time. Am I gonna get yelled at now:eek:hmy: ?

    I don't feed my dogs....

    No! I'm kidding! What sort of person would i be? LOL

    Seriously they get brekkie around 7/7:30 when mum is up and dinner at 6. Used to be 7 but my daddy thinks that if we feed Mika earlier there is less chance of him making a mess in the house.
