Yeah, I know what you mean, same here. We are raising two mini dachshunds. One is 9 months, the other 8 weeks, we just got her a few days ago. We feed the little one 4 times daily, and the 9 month old 3 times.
Not sure when/if I will switch him to 2 feedings. I measure out his daily ration so there is no fear of him getting too much. I figure if his stomach does not get stretched out he won't feel hungry. So far he is eating beautifully, taking his time chewing and never falling over his food like a starving dog.
He gets lots of exercise, getting walked 2 times a day and playing in the back yard (his favourite is the flirt-pole), plus playing with the senior dog and the puppy. His vet was very happy about his condition, so I know we are on the right track.
On days where he is more active he gets a bit of peanut butter in the Kong as a treat.
So, I'm not sure when it is a good age for 2 feedings, perhaps once you start adult food? You could call your vet's office and get a professional answer from the ones that know best?
