Personally, I would never dream of feeding only one meal a day. It is not an inconvenience to me to feed my dogs twice a day. Puppies get fed three times a day.
My dogs eat on my schedule. Breakfast can be anywhere from 3:30 a.m. (if we are driving to an away trial) to 8:00 a.m. and dinner can be as early as 4:30 or as late as 10:00 p.m. They deal.

Some people have been told that feeding once a day is how your supposed to feed dogs, because wolves didn't eat every day. I know a number of people who fast their dogs once a week for this reason. We don't allow our dogs to gorge themselves because wolves did it.

When I just had one dog, I free fed kibble and she only ate every day and a half or so. I'd just fill the dish when it was empty and she always stayed the same healthy weight.

My dogs eat their daily meal a couple hours before dark. They snack on fruit/vegetable pulp from the juicer, grass, training treats, and leftovers throughout the day so really they eat several small portions during the day and one big portion in the evening.

I really think that it is a personal preference coupled with how it works for your dogs.
