Twice a day... because the dogs get into things if I don't and one of my dogs will puke if he doesn't get fed multiple times per day...

I divide the daily food into 2 feedings simply because every 24 hrs is too long with any empty belly.

Twice a day, unless I'm feeding them a rabbit that's the size of 2 meals, then I wait til the middle of the day to feed and don't feed them a dinner. They do fine with that.

My boxer, if having eaten breakfast, will throw up if I don't feed him dinner - but not until the next morning.

once a day, they eat raw. and sometimes none at all (for that day), because they decided they were too good to track that day. :))

Once per day. If they are fed twice per day, they start to skip one meal or eat a very small amount for one meal.

When I track, that is the way I do it for Judge. If not, then he is fed 2x a day. Hobie and Red eat once a day.

My dogs eat once in the morning and once in the evening so, twice a day. They get too hungry if I only feed them once a day and I think 24 hours is too long for them to go without eating.

Maybelle eats once a day on raw.

Cody eats twice a day because of medication that needs to be taken on an empty stomach.

Walt, Izzy and Elli eat three times a day because they get spoiled by family members.

2x day plus random treats. She barfs when her stomach is too empty.
