Hi everyone- I'm wondering: do you leave you dog's food dish out all day so that he can he how and when he pleases? Or do you take it away after a half hour or so like some people recommend? When I got my puppy his breeder was just sort of leaving food out for the puppies to eat whenever they felt hungry, so when I got him home I felt mean putting the food out and then taking it away because he wouldnt see it coming (yes i know he would learn after a day or two, but I still feel like doing it those first couple of days until he understood was a little mean- especially when he was still adjusting to our home). He was originally on dry food but we started giving him wet food (w/ some dry mixed in) at night- and now he's a food snob and hardly touches the dry food that we give him in the mornings (that he used to love). He will leave it there all day and just go back for a bite or two when he's really hungry. So my question is: do you leave your dog's dry food out for him to eat whenever he wants or is it better (and would it make him eat his dry food in the morning) if you leave it out and then take it away? (note: he's potty trained so wondering when he'll have to go to the bathroom is no longer an issue). Thanks for any insight!
