    I transition over at around 6 months of age. With my crazy training schedule and work schedule, twice just won't work.

    I feed twice a day for life. I just don't like all that food sitting in my dogs' stomachs at one time. My first Lab was a bloater and I never want to go through that again.

    Default Changing dog feeding from twice a day to once a day

    I’m changing my feeding schedule for our 4 year old dog from twice a day to once a day . This change is starting today. I realize the original post was from 2011 - how did the meal amount change work out? I , like you , didn’t see many answers to your original question. And I’m not providing an answer either , just a note that we’re starting once a day now (after the 4th in house poop late in the night)

    At what age do you transfer from feeding twice a day to once a day for a young dog? As a puppy I know they eat more frequently, but at what age do people begin to transition to once a day feeding?

Smaller meals will make no difference. If you need quick energy, water them with a good supplement.
