Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Just joined today!  Our baby Merlin is just over 3 months old.  He still loves his breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Husky books say to switch from 3 to 2 daily meals at 3 months.  I'm a little worried about his weight, but it may be that he will just be a big boy.  He is 24 pounds now.  We are doing a lot of training, so that means a lot of treats throughout the day.  Any advice on when to cut out the lunch meal?  Thanks!

I do it when they lose interest in the 3rd meal or at 6 months, whichever comes first. If we're having a particularly eventful day and they're still pretty young (under a year) I may give a lunch just because. If you're noticing bile between meals it could be an indication of a 3rd meal still being necessary.

Yes once he starts refusing meals is a good indication that he's not hungry and his body is self regulating, making it much easier to know when to cut back on the number of feedings. I feed my dog once a day now and I'm lucky if she eats that.
