I've been feeding Murphy 3 meals a day, but I'm wondering when he should get switched over to 2 a day. He doesn't always eat much lunch, so he only gets a 1/2 cup for lunch.

I usually keep puppies on 3 meals until the 12 week or so mark, If he is phasing it out on his own you can split it into 2 feedings, just increasing the amt am/pm..I find my pups do very well on 3 cups per day total.

Hank's 4.5 months and still eats 3 meals/day. If he doesn't give up that lunch meal by 6 months I'll switch him to 2.

My 14 month old still get 3 meals a day. Lunch is a large Kong with his biscuits mixed with yogurt and then frozen. It sounds like your puppy isn't too interested in lunch and you are starting to phase it out. It should be fine to feed the half cup until you think he can do with 2 meals a day.
