    DefaultNeed some advice

    On the feeding schedule. Im going back to work a few days.

    The pups eat at 8 am, everyday. This wont change. Maybe earlier depending.

    They eat dinner between 430 and 5 pm. Depending on what were doing (playing outside, whatnot).

    My schedule right now will be 9-3 or 3-9. Till I get them situated then I will be working longer hours. 9-5, 11-7, 12-830 are all of the possible shifts.

    Should I feed them the same time (5pm) if Im home, and then when I get home at 7, 830, or 9? Or is that too long? SU will be working these days too(9-9), so no chance there.

    Am I thinking to hard? LOL. Lemme know what you think.

    A regular time and amount every day of both food and exercise leads to regular times to poop.

    But dogs can adapt to a wide variation in feeding times.

    I agree that the potty schedule will change but the dogs adapt. Mine do not always get fed the same time for evening feed. Often it is late. We just have to adjust their potty schedule and it is not uncommon for a 3AM 'HEY I GOTTA GO' bark.
