Our dogs eat once in morning, once at night.

Although this afternoon today, we were outside putting a park-bench together, someone had not put the groceries away like they were supposed to, so the dogs had a lunch of some really nice sirloin steaks rare. :(

It depends on the day. U know. If Snowball is hungry or not. If it is really hot out or not.

2 "official" meals, but she gets a taste of our lunches or snacks too, of course.

Twice a day. She eats her breakfast and her dinner when we eat ours. :)

Tango eats on dry dog food during the day and wet dog food at night, and of course I sneak treats.

Mostly just one meal in the evening but very often has something at breakfast time also.

Morning and evening
and sometimes in the middle of the day if they seem hungry -- Like, they've been really active that day or just trolling around the food bag/bucket which they don't usually do.
I mean, people are hungrier some days than others for no real reason, seems logical that any animal would be, too.

Phoebe and Deisel eat twice a day. They get breakfast and then the get water through out the day. Then they eat dinner and of course they get desert. Either a pigs ear or a hoof and of course they get 1 each. denta bone (I slip in a healthy thing for them) and they don't know it!!! hee hee. If they only knew it wasn't really a treat, treat!

The Dogs eat mainly after our supper when they are let back in the house and they have little treats (extra meat bits that no1 ate, beef bones, brown gravey <--- very rare, and usually my tomatoes from my salad.) but their bowls are full all day and sometimes they'll nibble. The cat eats every morning @ 5:30 am sharp and if no1 get out to feed her by this time she will bug you til you do.:D

both dogs get feed in the morning before I get dressed to go to work and at night after I'm done my supper...unless they have a class that night and then they don't get feed until we get home and then it's usually decreased a little bit so they don't put on extra weight after all it's taken me a year to get Smudge down to where he just has to lose a couple of pounds to be the right weight.

Morning Noon & Night. But that's because Mister Malone is still a pup. Our vet said that around 1 year, we should cut back to 2X per day only.

Lady eats in the evening only, but she gets a big bowl of Pedigree (four coffee mug scoops) mixed with water and Pedigree Little Champions. She also has a small dish on the upstairs porch that always has water in it if she gets thirsty, and she gets treats on and off during the day. Sally has a water and a food dish in the kitchen, and it is always full of food, so she can just eat when she wants. Floppsy gets fed sometime everyday, I never know when. He also gets a small salad on random days, but gets carrots every day.

My dogs eat twice a day (morning & evening) as it helps them metabolise better.

I have an automatic dog feeder and a waterer filled up all the time, and Jake just takes a bite here and there throughout the day. He doesn't like the food enough to overeat, so he just eats when he's hungry. He's not overweight.

I have to switch him to senior dog food soon. :( poor little guy.
