If we were to directly ask our dogs when is the best time they’d like to eat I am sure their response would be, “Anytime is just fine with me!”- latoya lawrence
I do not want to generalize because dogs all have their own dispositions and distinct preferences just as us people do.
However, I am pretty sure that if most dogs had it their way, they would be ready to eat all day long if we allowed them to.
So, while pet owners have various types of personal relationships with their dogs- some strict, some lenient, some a bit of both, some who just take natural moments of love, care, patience and attentiveness as they come.
Everyone does not tend to feed their dog on a precise day to day schedule, or even three times a day.
Some people feed their dogs throughout the day.
All that matters is what works out best for the pet, their owners, or the family.
If the dogs are being fed a healthy diet with portions suitable to their requirements everything should be fine.
One dog of mine would always get fed regular meals yet still make rounds in the house to other family members for extras.
I remember occasionally her belly would be so full that we could see it, and we would laugh and joke about how she hustled additional food from everybody.
Once she was satisfied, she went and nonchalantly rested her body in total contentment.
This was a healthy dog who ate table food and lived for a long time.
