This was Sage as well. Same as others, no food in the morning, only a little at lunch after a walk. If I walked him after work he would maybe eat a mouthful while I was at work and not drink any water. Regardless of whether or not we do the biggest walk after work or in the mornings, 80% of his food was eaten at night. I had to free feed him. I was doing all the training like they said in the books when he was a puppy and only leaving meals out for 1/2 hour but he wasn’t gaining weight.
He still eats most of the food at night. I think he likes it when I’m around and cooking and eating as well. He’s a social eater!! Free feeding, or putting delicious canned food/meat/cheese as a topper on his morning kibble helps him eat more if I want him to eat in the morning for some reason.
