Ari’s email: Fast eaters

If your dog is crazy about food, and doing homework (like sit or down) before feeding, makes your dog crazy and causes them to eat in the wrong “frame of mind”, try this feeding ritual instead:

  • Split a feeding into 4 small feeding bowls
  • Don’t be too structured before feeding
  • After the food is prepared, wait ….
  • When you see your dog settle their nervous system down, praise lightly and slowly put the food down
  • After she finishes that ¼ of her meal, watch for more settling behavior, once you see it “praise” or verbally mark that settling behavior and put the second bowl down
  • Follow that process for meals and see if this experiment helps your dog learn to settle more with feedings.

Here’s the link to the article on slow feed bowls too: Click Here

About the Author:

I’ve been training people and dogs in Seattle for the last decade and a half. My main focus when working with clients every week in one-on-one, private lessons is to help people learn to get their dogs to a functional level so that they can actually enjoy spending time every day with their dog instead of stressing about their dog’s behavior issues.
