    Default Feeding schedule

    Question: at what age should you stop feeding four times a day and go down to two? Spunky is 16 weeks old.

    I would go down to 2x a day at about 6 months! I started Brutus on all stages at 8 1/12 months and wish I would have done it sooner if I had known! I got a lot of info about feeding and best food from this site! IM sure others will be along with other advice...you can start all stages now if you want when you start 2 x a day. What are you currently feeding?

    I would go to 3 feedings now..then 2 feedings at 6 months. Remember to slowly increase and decrease..in my experience..Jake would get soft when increasing the amount. At 6 months, he went from 3 feedings of 1/2 cup each...to 2 feedings of 1 cup each.

    Cool Re: Feeding schedule

    Emma has been eating twice a days since 8 weeks and a couple of days. We both work during the day and I'm not of fan of free feeding because I had a dog the keeled over and was choking to death. We were able to dislodge the KIBBLE and he lived, thank god. Emma is now 15 weeks today and Wilson turned a year in January. He too was put on a twice a day schedule at 8 weeks. They've been just fine with that feeding schedule. So I say change to twice a day now. Emma will also be transitioning to adult food this week.

    Disclaimer: Thats just my opinion and others will vary.

    Ps.......Spunky is a cutie!!

    Great to know, Spunky is still having soft poo and hope to transition her to Fromm soon, she's currently on grain free Canidae.

    Vegas was around 7 months when I went down to two feedings a day, plus some healthy snacks of either fruit or veggies.

    You're welcome. I do agree with @JAKEISGREAT and @Davidh , if you can do three times a day that's great! I just couldn't cause of being gone during the day and my guys were just fine. If you do go from 4 to 2 feedings instead of three be sure not to do it all at once as that's a big jump for their tummies.
