free feeding vs food down 2x a day
a little history, my dog had major SA issues last year, they are behind us,thank god, but one of the things the trainer suggested we do was to go from leaving djangos food down all day to freefeeding. well, as soon as we started doing that, and with training in other areas, his SA went away and we have a very happy dog who, by the way, eats almost everytime i put his bowl down. here's the issue. he's put on weight since we've changed his feeding. i thought about switching back to leaving his food out to help with the diet. any thoughts? is it bad to switch from one way of feeding to another? as i think about thing,i believe his weight issue slowly started once we put his food down, he sometimes can't get enough food, and yes, it's my fault for also giving him a little extra every now and then.. big concern, is the SA coming back.would love feedback!
