How long to leave bowls of food down for dogs
I just switched from Authority to TOWT and am getting the feeding portions in perspective down..
I use to just feed my dogs twice a day, but I would leave their bowls down throughout the day. This has caused some issues (dexi eating all of the puppies food mainly.) So I want to give them 1/2 their portions for breakfast, which will be fed in their kennels when i leave for work.
My question is.. when I get home from work, and they get their second meal, how long should I leave the bowl down? I left it down for an hour today. Lilly ate almost all of her kibble but Dexi just watched Lilly eat. I know she is going to be hungry later tonight, but I don't want her to get the idea she can free feed/punk Lilly for her food too.
