|Mika, your way would NEVER work for a lab or lab mix... they will eat ALL you put down for them and still look for more. They do not know how to self-regulate, food is their life.
A friend's lab was left in a garage with a 50 lb bag of dog food, which he promptly ripped open and ate... the WHOLE BAG. He ate until he couldn't hold anymore, vomited it up and then continued eating from the bag, and on and on until the bag was empty. Needless to say, he nearly died from dehydration due to the food absorbing too much fluid out of his system, and this is a typical, TRUE example of how labs eat, sadly, not the only one in my experience.
This was an adult, puppies would be even worse!
