Do you guys feed your dogs at a set time or just have food available at all times? I know with my cats I just leave food out at all times, and they aren't overweight or anything, but how does it work with dogs?

Free feeding is ok for some dogs but not ones who have a healthy appetite! Definitely pros to feeding on a schedule is knowing when they need to go potty and regulating their food to make sure they dont overeat. You also can determine if your pet isnt feeling well if they arent eating all their food rather than leaving it out and not being quite sure how much they have eaten

That's a good point! I remember my schnoodle was such a picky eater as a puppy and would hardly eat anything, we had to mix in rice and stuff so he would eat, and even then, he would just pick out the rice and leave the kibble! If I remember correctly he got better when he grew older, and I think we did feed him twice a day, but he always left food in the bowl anyway.
