Dog Lover Tip of the Day: Tricks to get your puppy to eat!

A trick to get your puppy to eat that actually has a second purpose.

When your puppy is in a playful mood; or otherwise distracted from eating there is a trick I have used with my dogs for years.  Simply pick up your pup’s food bowl for 10 to 15 seconds and than place it back down on the floor.  If that does not work, pick up the bowl again but this time before placing it back down hold it near your face and pretend to eat.  I know this sounds ridiculous, but it actually works.  This trick is a technique that has a second use.   It helps prevent your dog from developing food-guarding problems.  Food guarding is when a dog becomes agitated as a person or animal approaches their food bowl.  To help prevent this from happening taking away the food bowl and placing it back down after a few seconds can help prevent this tendency from developing your dog.  If your pup still does not eat, then his or her belly is probably bothering him and you may want to consult with your Veterinarian.
