The only time I may skip dinner is if I have issues during tracking. That is the only time I need food for training.

Okay! I thought a day off food a week was a common thing.

Maybe if they choose to take a day off. You could setup a diet where they aren’t eating one day a week. I think it’s dumb though.

I can feed my dog a correct amount every day or I can feed him extra 6 days so I don’t have to feed him at all on the 7th. What exactly am I supposed to be gaining from this?

I occasionally skip one meal a day but not an entire day of fasting.

Not unless there is a medical reason, like having a vet procedure or an illness.
