Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Even something this simple can slow your dog down a bit when it comes to eating and doesn't require any new equipment. Be aware that this is only suitable for small dogs where a golf ball is too large to swallow.
This takes the pressure off the victim dog and removes the temptation of extra food for the greedy dog. If you still find that your dog is greedy or aggressive over food, it may be a possessiveness problem, rather than a speed eating problem. Bloating from food can increase the chance that your dog's stomach will twist, cutting off blood supply to the stomach. This version of How to Stop a Dog from Eating Too Fast was reviewed by Pippa Elliott, MRCVS on February 6, 2015. Eating too quickly can harm your pet's digestion: he may choke, burp, pass gas, bloat, and even vomit.


If you do want to purchase a commercial plastic bowl, try the Brake Fast Bowl or Slow Feeder. Either split the food between several small saucers and spread them around the room, or divide the food among the individual dips in a muffin or cupcake tin. You may find that your dog will still rush over to eat the rest of the other dog's food purely out of habit. For example, the owner was late home and the hungry dog found leftovers from an uneaten meal.
Dogs are most likely to be aggressive over food if one dog has something the other dog wants.
When feeding your dog is more like throwing raw chicken at an alligator, it can be frustrating. This forces the dog to put his paws on the surface and it slants his gullet downhill, which can help decrease the amount of air swallowed.


You may find that your dog eats quickly because he fears the other dog will steal his food, or maybe he eats quickly in order to race over and eat the other dog's food. This gives each dog a chance to eat from his own bowl without the pressure of the other dog breathing down his neck.
When the next meal appeared, he bolted his food and went in search of leftovers (from his pal's dish) out of a sense of food insecurity. Address any competitive behaviors when it comes to eating and learn things you can do to physically slow your dog's eating. They don't have grip rings, so they can slide as dogs eat, requiring them to 'chase' their food.
