This pup knows how to enjoy the good things in life without getting out of control. Many dogs don't have this much restraint around food, but there are ways to make sure your dog has a healthy feeding routine.

If you have a puppy, feeding it by hand four times a day is ideal, since it helps pet and owner get to know each other. It can also prevent food possessiveness or aggression from developing. Once they're no longer puppies, most dogs should be fed twice a day.

Measuring out the food, like this guy does, is also a great habit to form. Portion control is important for your dogs's health. Guidelines are usually printed on the food package, but asking your pup's vet will get you a better idea of how much to give at each feeding.
