Help with my dog!!!!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!?
My dog eats VERY fast and this worries me because of bloating and other issues. She is a 4 year old full blood MINIATURE cocker spaniel. She weighs about 16 pounds and she gets half a cup of dry dog food once a day. She is very well exercised with all of our property and other dogs. So how do i get her to EAT SLOWER?
Well my dog eats pretty fast too. My step-mom put a big ball in her food bowl (one that is special for this kind of thing, not like a dog toy) and now when she eats the dog hast to eat around the ball. I don’t know if it really works, but it is worth a shot. I don’t think eating fast is a big deal though. Lots of dogs do eat fast.
How do i get my dog to stop growling when he has a bone/treat? And how to make him eat treats slower..?
My little maltese dog will be given a treat and then start to eat/chew on it. When ever i get close to him he thinks that im going to steal it from him even though im the one that gave it to him! There are other dogs that are around the house and they have never done this before. I have tried to spray him with water and gave him a tap on his booty and say “no”. But when ever i do that he now associates the treat as something bad that he has done and is discouraged to eat it once he has scene it again.
Another problem that i have, is that he will eat little treats too fast. He swallowed a treat before and it was a nightmare to get it out. I was so scared. He just wolfs it down and dosent take his time to eat it. This happens even with the other dogs being outside of the room. Please help me I have no clue what to do
First of all, are the other dogs in the house bigger, and if they are how do they all interact with each other, the best way to get yr pooch to relax is to show him the treat ,, keep YR HAND CLOSED LIGHTLY AROUND THE TREAT . CALL HIM OVER “” RELAX, JUST MAKE A GAME OUT OF IT ”
LIKE U WOULD IF U WERE PLAYING WITH HIM , HAVING A TOY, ALSO KEEP YR PET ON A REGULAR FEEDING REGIMENT, ONCE U HAVE STARTED THIS, ( SMALL AMOUNTS OVER THE COURSE OF THE DAY) WHEN IT,S TIME FOR THE SECOUND FEEDING SIT DOWN WITH THE BOWL ON YR LAP, AND FEED HIM BY HAND, SO HE WILL START TO ASSOCIOATE THAT TIME AS YR TIME TOGETHER, BONDING WITH ANY ANIMAL IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF TRUST,, THIS WILL TAKE SOME TIME SO BE PATIENT,
How to teach my dog to chew her food?
I have a 12 month old mutt named Luna, and she is great, well mannered, and behaves well around food. The problem is, when she gets food, she gobbles it up and hardly chews at all! She finishes her food within less than a minute of me putting it down for her. I used to raw feed and was so happy with it because she thinned out, her coat became nice and shiny, and she just seemed healthier, but I had to stop when one day I was in the kitchen she she barfed up an entire chicken wing! We had to stop raw feeding because of this, and now even though she is just eating dog food, she still gobbles it down. When am doing training, she will snap up the treats and basically inhale them, and then will start coughing and choking on treats. I am worried, because she has a deep chest and I’m afraid that if she continues with this she could get health problems. Is there any way to train a dog to eat slower? I use the Kong Wobbler, but I still don’t know how to get her to eat treats more slowly. It’s also dangerous, because if I give her bones, she will break off a piece and basically swallow it whole, but bones are the only toys she likes. Please help!
We have tried those bowls, but they don’t work, and she has REALLY strong teeth, we still haven’t been able to find a bone that she can’t break in half! I’m just worried with the speed that she eats, and she is constantly choking and coughing after she eats.
I stopped raw feeding because it was horrifying to see my dog vomit up an entire chicken wing, especially because it was almost to large too come out of her throat.
Dogs actually don’t chew their food. This is completely normal behavior. You may just want to consider giving her smaller pieces of food. Im betting she is a big dog so she probably thinks she can handle big food and just cant. Also consider making her pace herself. When its dinner time try only giving her a small portion at a time so she learns to take it slow. Or if she goes to fast interrupt her by taking the food and giving a command like like slow then give her a small portion to make sure she understands. And don’t give her bones anymore or only give them when u can supervise and make her take breaks
