I have the same problem. Angel is always looking for food. It breaks my heart when I put his kibble in a bowl, it looks like such a small amount! But, he will not become obese! For me, that's worse than seeing his meager amount of food in the bowl! He gets the proper amount, plus he gets a treat here and there.

I feed him at around 7:30 am and 6:30 pm, with a treat in between.

It depends for Onyx. Usually she eats one big meal so she only eats once a day. She seems a lot less hungry this way but she eats raw so her meal is a workout. Every few days or so she gets two small meals in a day and when she does she eats breakfast at about 6:30 or 7:00 am and the second meal is around 6:30 or 7:00 pm. She also gets treats if we do any training during the day. She has a constant long lasting chew out to work on.

We feed Odie in the morning around 8 and in the evening around 5, but we do a form of free feeding and make sure she eats as much as she wants. If she seemed hungry in the middle of the day, I wouldn't hesitate to feed an extra meal.

Jaxx is fed in the morning usually around 8 am. His evening meal is at 3pm and if I do not notice that it is 3pm Jaxx will remind me.
