Free Feeding or Scheduled Times?
Just curious what everyone does. When I first brought BellaMia home, we free fed 3/4 cup of dry as that is what the breeder did and I didn't want to change too many things too fast. She nibbled on this all day and finished her portion by the end of the day. She ate calmly, no running around and dancing, no excitement. I have since transitioned her to 3 meals, 1/4 cup each meal and now she's literally running in circles, jumping and diving into the food bowl. I made this change a month ago. I want to stop this crazy behavior.
I do give training treats throughout the day. She munches on a bully stick and gets a biscuit while my husband and I eat dinner. He thinks we should have continued with free feeding, I think scheduled feeding is better overall for health and digestion.
Thoughts or suggestions?
