    She's sleeping ATM. Lol.

    She was having a small portion of meat and mix for breakfast, chicken portions/meaty bones for lunch, then her last meal is meat mix late in the evening.

    She rarely is hungry in the mornings now though, so it's just a waste. She makes it very clear when she is hungry, and that seems to be just after lunch and then in the evening.

    Hmm, see its even stranger for a working dog like Boss to have free range food. Do you feed him wet food morning or night?

    Wet food only at night.

    I know farmers that do the same with their work dogs too. They have 24/7 access to food too.

    Like I said he is a shy feeder.

    See all the working dogs I know get fed at night to give them the idea that they earn't it. I feed both my dogs at night for this reason.
    My rule is(really only for Roly) if he still has food in his bowl by the next evening at dinner time, I don't re-fill.

    Yeh that is a good idea. It develops a great food drive. But some dogs dont need this.

    Hence why I said working dogs. Besides, quite a few farmers will start work at 6:00 in the morning.

    Yep. But my point was that not all dogs, working or not, need this kind of attention to detail. I personally feed most of my dogs like this (its easier) and any of my dogs that are having eating issues. But then my house dogs have dry food on tap.
    If the dog has a good food drive to start with you can leave dry food out for it to pick at when it wants.

    Boss isnt a working dog, he is a working dog breed.

    Even we get our working kelpie, he will be treated the same way as Boss.

    Not all dogs are pigs

    I assumed cause your OH is a farmer(I thought so anyway) that Boss was your working dog.
    I personally think that leaving food for a dog to enjoy whenever they like makes a spoilt pooch. IMO.
