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.

PostSubject: Best way to change up feeding amount/schedule   Wed Sep 05, 2012 1:10 pm

So we are getting to the point in Bode's feeding where the daily recommended amount goes down. We are currently feeding him a little over a cup, three times a day. Is it better to just decrease the amount per feeding, or to remove the lunch feeding altogether? I would prefer to get him down to just two meals a day, but he is so used to his feeding schedule, and he goes bonkers if it's off. If I come home to let him out at lunchtime, he will refuse to go out to potty until he has gotten his food. He is seriously a food maniac. Any suggestions?

can you just start feeding half his lunch portion at lunch or replace his lunch with say a bone/ treat of some kind? and keep the morning/night portions the same?
he is a husky and as you are finding out they are stubborn when things change, its good to get him used to having cure balls thrown at him Wink

I would do like Jenn suggested and try gradually decreasing his lunch until you can replace it with a treat and then stick to the breakfast and dinner feedings.

That's a good idea, thanks. Kind of a no brainer, don't know why I didn't think about it!
