    I'm not sure where I read it but I remember reading that the once thought of feeding once a day was now seen as cruelty and that twice a day was now the recommended norm for all dogs (I'm sure there are some exceptions). Maybe the once a day feeders should try and get some info on that.
    I feed 3 times but that's probably not great either but it suits both me and the dog that way and he only gets the recommended amount over the three feeds not any extra. Vet said he's not overweight and just fully grown now at 8 months.

    We found that twice a day works best. Mabel gets a carrot snack at mid morning when I am home and a popcorn snack in the evening.

    We are feeding Otis 3X a day 1/2 cup each. To be accurate, we grind his food and add water so it becomes a paste. He eats so fast that this helps eliminate the mess of dry food, as well as the potential for aspirating food like our friends English did.
    My concern is that he isn't getting enough? He is tiny. Almost 8 months and only 25 lbs?
    His papa was a beautiful 45lb bully. He has a great looking head but looks like a high school baseball player LOL. All legs and ears and feet. -20170719_111818-jpg

    That sure doesn't sound like enough food to me! He is very tiny. Bullies do come in all sizes, and you have to consider the size of his dam,also. Mine are 45lb.,59lb,and 52lb. The two biggest have the same parents and out weigh them both! Other members will have their say,but I have never had "skinny" dogs.
    A photo looking down at Otis,would be very helpful. @Otisparents

    At 8 months he should be getting 2 cups a day. Si up the amount at each meal
