Nope- I don't monitor their weight. My adults eat 2x a day- I place a big full bowl of kibble on the floor and when all of them have eaten (they take turns in pecking order!) I pick up the bowl.
My puppies eat 3x a day, same thing, put a big bowl down and let them eat what they want, pick it up when they are done.
I don't have any picky eaters- they all eat their fill at each meal. Havabrat is a little on the chunky side, but I don't worry about it. Daisy and Stella are great weights too. Emmy is a bit chubby too, but she is a great eater when she is nursing her babies and takes a while to get the weight off.
I don't feed my dogs any snacks/treats. They do get chewbones on a regular basis.
It seems to me that the more people freak about how much their Hav is eating and if they are overweight or underweight is when they end up with a picky eater.
