Jaeger (17 weeks old APBT) eats 3 times a day, with no fast days. All of my adults eat once a day, sometime between 2pm and 5pm. They are also fasted one day a week.

A dog's digestive system is completely different than ours'. The length of time the food spends in their system can range from 6 - 16 hours. Raw food is normally fully digested within 6 - 8 hours, canned takes a little longer mayber 8 - 12 hours, and dry takes forever anywhere from 8 - 16 hours. With this in mind, it is possible (even when feed 12 hours apart) that the dog still has food from the previous feeding in its digestive tract.

This is also why I fast my dogs on one day every week. It gives their systems a chance to completely empty out and take a rest.
