I feed twice a day...morning and evening. Leaving it down is not an issue. They vacuum it up so fast there is never anything left. Also, I feed everyone out of a separate bowl and in their crate. That way no one hogs the food and I can monitor who is off their feed.
i feed my dogs 3x a day and my cat 2x a day my dogs get fed when we get up at 6am and then again at 1 ish and then again at dunner time 6 ish they dont get very big servings- they do have dry dog food out at all times - but they prefer the soft food that ive been trying to wean them off with no luck, was going good and then they just wouldnt eat it so im back to mixing and weaning slower this time as i read on line- but my cat eats in the morning at 6 and then again at 3 and hes good for the day and he also has dry cat food out so he can eat that when ever he wants- but hardly does-
I feed twice a day. About 8:30 and then again at 6. Usually Kyra is a fast muncher, so I don't have to worry about leaving it down. At times she will leave a little in there, but it is usually gobbled up within the hour.

I try to feed Pebbles 3 times a day (in the morning before work, when I get home around 4:30, and her last meal between 8-8:30)
Sometimes her food is left with her while I'm at work, but I noticed she doesn't touch too much until I get home. I leave it when she doesn't eat in the morning. I don't give her a set amount of time to gobble it up. I'll take the food away once she stops paying attention to the bowl.
I have currently started feeding chocho on a schedual... when i put the food down he gobbles down 1/2 of it then he will leave it. Im not sure if im putting down too much or he wants to safe it for later..so i don't know how long I should leave it down.
Rocky has food all day. when we got him he was a little thin so I started to leave food for him all day, now he looks alot better and always stops when hes done.
Bullwinkle gets food 2 times a day and a snack inbewteen. He will eat all day if you let him so as soon as he looks like hes done I take it away. hes getting better at knowing witch food is his and witch is rockys too so we dont have much of a problem with him trying to eat big dog food.
Our cat on the other hand gets food once a day and then sneeks into the pantry as soon as im not looking and eats a bag of his food, and rockys food in a few days. hes getting real fat too. Ive been having to check in side behind everything and even in the bags of food befor i shut the door each time now.

I feed Cody two times a day, once around 7:00 AM and then at 5:20PM. He usually eats it up right a way but sometimes in the AM he doesn't and I just leave it down for him and he will eat it eventually. I asked my vet about this and he said that was what he would do.
I feed 2x's a day, now that they are older. As a puppy, though, I fed 4x's a day with the recommended daily amount divided by 4. I usually only feed 1/2 of the recommended amount at each feeding, and leave it until they finish.
