Q. What should his daily schedule be for eating

Answered By

A. This is way too vague. Try making another post about WHO you're talking about. Your adult dog? Your puppy? Your cat? Your kitten? Your turtle? Who knows.

Let's say it's your puppy who is 8 weeks old. He should eat three times per day. He should be eating puppy food. If you read the back of the kibble bag you are feeding him, it should tell you how much to feed him, however.. kibble brands tend to encourage overeating to sell more product.. so try feed a LITTLE less than it tells you to feed on the back of the bag. You can use the pup's mealtimes as training-time! Mental stimulation through training is so very important for young dogs.
