Default Hypoglycemia question

My 10 month old puppy, Finn, has never had symptoms of hypoglycemia. I've always monitored his closely, and he's always been an excellent eater. I just scoop out his daily allotment of food in the morning and he eats when he wants throughout the day. However, he has gotten into the habit of being hand fed. This is because of frequent visits to my sister's house. She has 2 dogs, and if I leave Finn's food down it gets gobbled up by her dogs. So, I always hand feed him while we're there. Now, at home, he's not eating on his own very well. Sometimes it will be 3-4 pm before he takes his first bite of food. Is this a problem, or should I just use the old "he'll eat when he's hungry enough" rule of thumb? Just asking for your opinions please, I understand you can't give me medical advice. Thanks so much!

My 4 pounder some times does not eat in the am. I give her the bowl again about ll am, then again about 3pm and finally around dinner. Usually she will eat. sometimes, though, she will not. I do give a 'night time' treat to all the dogs, and she almost always eats that. Next am she's fine. If finn has never had problems, then I'd say wait him out. You can give some 'healthy' treats in the evening if he has not eaten. If they don't eat, they may vomit yellow bile like stuff.
