You may think that feeding your dog is a no brainer but there are right and wrong feeding times for your dog. Most dogs eat their dog food twice per day. This stabilizes their metabolism and aids with digestion. You should select a feeding schedule and stick with it. Give dog food at 7:00am and 6:00pm. Remove any uneaten food but the dog water bowl should be kept filled with fresh water at all times.If you’re working on housetraining or have a dog who overdrinks, you can schedule the amount and times you provide it. But watch your dog carefully and, if he seems to be thirsty, increase the amount. A sample schedule for monitoring water would be:

  • 7:00 a.m. – Clean and fill bowl half-way
  • Noon – Rinse out and refill half-way.
  • 6:00 p.m. – Rinse and fill half-way.
  • Bedtime – Clean and fill bowl about 1/4 of the way.

Thanks to for providing some of this information.
