So my question is will a dog eat his food so another dog won't get it? do any of your hav do this?
I work for the public schools and so I'm off in the summers. I've noticed my 1/2 hav, Ollie, seems to eat his food, when one of my others dogs is close by, even though he didn't show any interest 5 minutes ago.
all three of my dogs are fed in seperate spaces, and Ollie is actually has his food in a different room, for privacy
if he doesn't finish his meal, and I'm not in that room, I close the door, otherwise my anatolian piggy pup, Oz, with snarf down that tablespoon of food.
anyway, it seems that if Oz is near (2-3 body lenghs of Oz's, 10 yards or so) maybe looks at ollie's food
, then Ollie eats some of it.
Ollie has always been a driveby eater, never really finishing any meal like all my other food scarfing, I'm done in 10 sec flat, dogs.
I'm wondering b/c he usually maintains his weight but lately he seems to be gaining a little and I wonder if that's why.
thanks for the insight and help in advance!
