what if your not home at feeding time


New Member
We are new to dachsunds so please excuse my ignorance. We have always let our dogs free feed however from everything I've read you can't do that with a dachshund. The morning and lunch time feeding for our puppy are not a problem but what if we are not going to be home at dinnertime? Do I feed him early?


I don't think an hour or two would make a significant impact on your dachshund. He/ she will survive a little wait for dinner. I do agree with you about free feeding. Mine would be a walking, barking eating machine. Weight control is so important for a dachshund. Carrying around a lot of extra weight is not healthy and could impact the spine.
