how old is your pup? and does he stay up late with you? if you don't have a set schedule, your dog wont either.

How old is the dog, what kind of dog you have? Also, what are you feeding the dog and what are his energy levels and what is the exercise routine with him?

and how much does he eat when he does eat? do you measure it out for him, or do you leave food out all the time?

Get on a schedule at a certain time day and evening, leave the food down 20 mins if he don't eat take it up "do not leave the food down" try again the next feeding time same thing... the dog will not starve itself to death it will learn to eat when it's time ;)

there's your answer right there. feed him two separate times, and take it to about 2 cups a day, maybe even a little less. Your dog should be hungry by feeding time if you don't over feed him, and start a feeding routine, so that it is the same every day

you are lucky that is all he does, some dogs love to tear stuff up when their owners aren't home during the day lol. If you can squeeze two long walks one in the morning one at night with some play time, the doggy will get hungry and will eat better. Also everyone gave you a very good idea on how to feed him, you can also add things to make the food more apetizing as well if he is a picky eater.
