How Many Times A Day Should I Feed My Cocker Spaniels

Here is a common question that often comes up and that is how many times a day should i feed my cocker spaniels?

You should feed an adult cocker spaniel twice a day. I used to feed my cocker three times a day but we divided up the same amount of food so that he was eating the same amount normally given to an adult cocker two times a day.

In general, for dry food, an adult dog should get 2 1/4 to 3 3/4 cups a day.

A cocker spaniel is a particularly food-motivated dog, which can be great as far as training goes. I trained my cocker new tricks after he was already an adult just using treats as motivation.

The average American Cocker Spaniel is around 18 to 28 lb. Keep in mind, that a cocker must be given strict food amounts or they can easily gain too much weight and become fat or overweight, which can add to health problems later on.
