Is it recommendable to feed my dog every evening or have her free fed?
She's really skinny and I worry sometimes

Depends on the dog. If your vet isn't worried about the dogs weight, you should t either. If you go to the AKC website, there is info on standard weight for each breed. Also, certain breeds are prone to over eating if free fed so be careful with free feeding. I've had dogs that did well with free feeding an a few that didn't

I free feed my dog. I tried the "schedule" feeding, but many times she wasn't hungry then. As long as she potties outside, I don't care when she eats. lol We have an agreement........

You should feed twice a day. If you are putting food down you are aware of how much they are eating and when they last ate. Make sure your are reading the bag are feeding the right amount. If you are feeding the high amount and your dog is still skinny add a 1/2 cup food. Or look for a higher quality dog food. This site is great for comparing foods, http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/

I free feed my dogs but I only fill the big bowl they share once a day. Some days they eat less and sometimes more.
