I was told by the guy at a pet store that you can either feed them 2 times a day or 1 time a day it doesn't matter as long as he gets the same amount of food each day, my problem is If I feed him first thing in the morning before I leave for work and before he gets his morning walk, then he poops in his cage, cuz he doesnt have time to work it through,

my question is ... is it fine to feed him once a day in the evening so he has time to work it out before bed or is once a day too much time not to eat for him?

advice or tips are welcome..

I tried that this morning, I fed him at 6, <I leave at 7>, we went for a walk to the park and ran around, played fetch, and walked back, he had a little poop and I thought that was it, I checked on him at lunch and he still pooped in his cage.. maybe I'll try getting up earlier to feed him..? but there must be a better way LOL.

I do have a board in there to make it smaller, I feel it is a good size for him he has room to lay down but doesn't have room to run around, I would say "comfortable" for him, he only did it once, and it was off to the side of the cage like he didn't really have a choice, but I don't want him to get into the habit of doing it so I'd like to take care of it before its an issue.

your input and advice is great, thanks again. I'll just get up earlier to feed him and give him some time to digest it and hopefully that solves it.
