    Stig's breeder always free fed her bullies and left the food out all day. I don't think they ever overfed. He was a little chunky when we got him at 5 months but I'd like to call that his baby fat days.

    I think it depends on the bulldog too but I have a feeling that the results would surprise us and find that a lot don't overfeed themselves at all.

    With Lucy, I left the food out all day. She would nibble here and there as she felt she needed to. I think after a few days, most would stop gorging themselves and nibble as well. There is an animal behaviorist here that I speak with occasionally and her thoughts are that free feeding is the way to go.

    As puppies, you never know how much they might need and sometimes they will need more if they are having a growth spurt. So hard to tell!

    Well I kinda agree with that...each to their own...but to me that would make me feel better.
