Feeding Schedule Advice

I have just put my 9 week old mini schnauzer on a feeding schedule. Should I take the food away that he didn't eat after a certain time span or leave it out for him? Any suggestions or advice?

I would pick up that food and put it down again after 10 mins; if he doesn't eat it after that, then lift it until the next meal.

I agree, allowing him to pick at it through the day is not the best thing to do. Maybe leave it down for about 20 mins

that answered one of my questions too)

how much do you think a 3 month old jackapoo should get per day? she is on Purina for puppies. I feed her twice a day, giving 1.5 handfuls per each meal. I was wondering whether that is enough?

When my JRT was that age she was on 3 small meals per day, some puppies do good on 2. If your pup is maintaining a steady weight then I'm sure your routine is fine
