I feed my 7 month Chocolate in the morning and at night. Usually he will eat all of his foodin about 5 min so its not normally a problem. Occassionally he wont eat his Breakfast all at once, he will eat half then 10-15 min if I put the bowl back down he'll eat some more etc etc. The main reason I pick his bowl up is so my little Daschund doesnt eat it, but also bc I always heard it wasnt good to have food laying around all day so they could eat when they wanted. Im probably rambling now, but any suggestions are welcome. thanks again.
