My baby girl Java is 6 months old and she is on 2 meals a day...she's been on 2 meals a day since we got her at 2 months old, out of necessity. It certainly hasn't hurt her growth-she's over 50lbs and healthy and fit as can be!!
Our first lab was only fed 2x per day as a pup, but both my husband and I worked. On the suggestions of my breeder and the people here I've been feeding Dozer 3x per day. I'm in no hurry to change it ... I work from home now ... I'm just wondering when is a good time to do it.
My boyfriend and I both work also, which is why Java is fed only twice a day. I thought I read somewhere on here that it's ok to start feeding them twice a day around 6 months, but I'm not 100% sure. That must be great working from home and being able to spend so much time with Dozer!!!
I think I switched my pups at about 5-6 months of age.

Ok...so it's not so quiet there!! LOL I was envisioning spending a nice, quiet, relaxing day at home...just you and Dozer-I guess I was a little off base, huh?? lol
By the way....Dozer is soooo cute! What a sweet face!
