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.

Hello everyone!

My puppy is 4 and a half month and i’m still feeding her 3 times a day! I read that that in general around 6 month i should reduce from 3 meals to 2/day. I was wondering around what age you switched for your husky pups feeding schedule from 3 times to 2 times a day?

Thank you  Very Happy  

Each pup is a little different. You can always try it at 2 times a day and see how it goes. If she seems overly hungry or has hunger pukes at twice a day go back to 3. There's nothing really that says you have to do 2 meals a day. Some dogs do better with 3 and some do better with 1 even. She's still in a heavy growth stage at 4.5 months. Most pups don't slow down their growing until 6-9 months which is when they are more likely to stop being hungry all the time. Right now her metabolism and fast growth burns though her food pretty fast which is why 3 meals tend to help ward off hunger pukes and upset stomach.

Thank you very much for the explanation!
She is hungry all the time that's for sure Smile , and gaining almost 2 pounds per week. she weights 30 pounds.
I thought to reduce her meals at the age of 6 month, but if by that time she'll be still gaining almost 2 pounds per week i'll probably will continue with 3 times a day feeding untill she'll start to slow down in weight gain.
