I have a small Lhasa Apso. I give her dry dog food mixed with mashed potatoes for breakfast and just dry food for dinner. She doesn't like dry food when it's not mixed with something tasty. So she eats just enough to kill the hunger. In the off chance I forget to remove her bowl, she'll munch sometime during the night or early morning. I don't want to encourage this system of 'free food' - eat whenever you feel like. I need her to eat on time so I can remove the bowl knowing she ate adequately. Should I be removing the bowl every night or let it be so she can eat later?
This problem is absent with breakfast. She'll gobble the entire bowl. She loves potatoes.
