How often do you feed your dogs?

I’m curious how others feed their dogs. How many hours between meals?

    My dog has acid reflux and dog's digestion works better on smaller amounts of food.

    So she gets one small meal at 5:30 am another at 10:30am another at 3:30pm and a last one at 8:30pm. No treats in between.

    If I do give her treats I cut out a meal. Her treats consist of bones and chews. I also have to watch her as she tends to put on weight very easily. Her diet is also different each day.

      Funny thing is I was actually hoping someone with an Acid Reflux dog would have an answer. I am currently waiting a vet appointment to confirm acid reflux but I was curious how often someone would feed a dog with it.

    twice a day, usually around 7-8 am and then again around 6 pm.

    They get a regular feeding at 6pm at night, little snacks during the day, because Shih Tzu's tend to vomit, and the theory is that too much bile accumulates on an empty stomach. So feeding smaller amounts during the day helps with this. Am I 100% convinced of this?? No, I'm 70/30 convinced of it.

    Morning: 5:30am

    Evening: 5:30pm - 6:00pm

    Not counting any treats given in between meals or the raw meaty bone given every Friday or Saturday.

    I feed my dogs wet food around 4 in the morning as I'm getting ready for work and leave a bowl of dry kibble for them to snack on throughout the day at their leisure.

    One small (ish) feed at around 7am.

    A larger feed at around 6 pm. GSD male 21months old.

    Some dogs prefer to have one feed a day, usually in the evening.

    When I had dogs I fed them each 1 cup of food 3 times a day--breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Plus occasional treats, of course. They were always at a very good weight according to their vet's evaluation, as well as how they looked to me (not overweight, not underweight, but just right).

    I don't have dogs, and if I do, I feed them enough.
