Default Re: Puppy feeding thoughts...

Actually....

We have Beagles... they are both around 40 pounds... but they are not fat... they are just very big for the breed... you can still feel the ribs... barely, which is perfect for a beagle.

We feed them twice a day. If we let them graze, they would be a hundred pounds...

People say that it is more natural for a dog to graze...as that is what they do in the wild... but that is not true. IN the wild, they had to hunt down, kill, and then eat the food... and then not eat again for a few days maybe, until they were able to kill something else.

About the only thing my dogs hunt now-a-days is the kitchen garbage can... boy are there surprises when we get home, if we forget to put it up!!
