How do I change from free-feeding to a schedule?

1126 0
My 7 year old is a free feeder. I put the 2 cups of food in her bowl first thing in the morning and she will come back to it throughout the day. I'd like to change her to scheduled feedings, especially with our pup coming home in two weeks. Do I just put the dish down for an hour and if she eats, she eats, if she doesn't take it away and put it down again later? With two dogs in the house I know it's much easier with scheduled feedings instead of free feeding, so you know how much food each is getting.
