Default How many times a day do you feed your dog?

I'm just wondering if I'm the only one who feeds their dog once a day. I feed them the right amount, but just one time per day usually around dinner time. I would feed them half the amount but twice, but I think that one large meal is better than two small ones. Is it a bad thing that I do this? Should I be feeding multiple times a day?

I feed two times a day. Late morning around 10, and early evening around 6.
But times vary due to schedules.

I feel more comfortable feeding twice, because I worry about bloat when feeding one large meal. Especially with my bigger dogs.

I feed twice because I'm worried about bloat too. Although Boris is a picky eater and really ends up with one big meal a day anyway, as he often won't touch the morning one...

I feed twice a day, but the morning kibble is about a 1/2 cup, and really I only put it in there to make me feel she has it available - she never touches
it until well into the evening if I'm at work, or possibly afternoon if I'm home and she's gotten a walk.

I feed 3 or 4 times a day, because I have a pup, and that is what I have always read. I feed 1 cup of kibble and 2-3 oz of chicken broth.
