I think my puppy is a little on the chubby side. I have noticed him bulk up a little in the past but then he would grow into it. But he is now 7 months old and I have a feeling his growth spurts will become more subtle.
Is he too young to go to twice daily feeding? Should I cut out the mid day meal and reserve kibble from the other portions for his treats? Now I reserve from the mid day meal for our training treats.
My other option would be to reduce the volume of all meals and continue 3 meals.
I can't go by his appetite because he is a bottomless pit!
In addition to meals and training treats, he gets bully sticks in the evening because he has a strong chew urge. I know that is contributing calories.
He is probably 11 pounds. He has a lush coat but I'm judging his chubbyness by the fact that he feels like a little tank, although I feel his ribs.
