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.

Kylah is 8 months old and I've been feeding her 3 times a day, 1 cup per feeding. Is it a bad thing to still be feeding her 3x a day or should I switch to 2 feedings at 1.5 cups each?

It's not 'bad', but you could easily go to two times if you wanted to.

When I got my pup my vet suggested doing 3 times a day till he was between 4-5 months old and then going to twice a day.

What we mostly do is feed him two large meals a day and then break up the rest of his food for treats for going potty outside,going in his kennel and training. This really works because Simon is nuts for his kibble so we can use it for treats.

To do that and make sure he gets enough we measure out his food in the morning and put in in a baggy so we can keep track of how much he is eating. We give him roughly a 1/3 in the morning and then try to give him 1/3 through out the day and then 1/3 for dinner but sometimes dinner is a little larger.

It has worked great for Simon.
