I have told mum not to even THINK about feeding Dora... she better listen . Im going to continue this as best as I can.
    Another question... how the hell am I supposed to know when she looks like she thinks that the food maybe wasnt meant for her when I walk past?? Whenever I do TOT she always just looks at me with the same confused, head-cocked expression...
    Cut down one meal to about 1/4 what you would usually feed her, then the next meal she should show a lot more interest.

    It's a hard one to judge without seeing it at all. For Batty he started looking around at other things trying to work out what I was doing.

    It's bad for dogs and especially puppies to eat straight after racing around or lots of exercise Makes them get upset tummies!

    Ideally wait until the panting has eased up and their breathing has gone back to normal - that's what I do. Also, make sure that the tongue doesn't go blue! Half an hour should be fine, depending on how Dora is going.

    My ACD that lives with dad runs until his tongue goes blue given half the chance. He will not stop or slow down for anything on earth unless you have a tennis ball and put him in a drop/stay. Usually takes him about 2 hours to settle after that!! But he is an extreme case.

    Oh and they vomit as well as get diarreah. Not pleasant at all IMO!

    That can be a sign of her food not agreeing with her too

    But I think that's something best dealt with another time lol!

    Any chance you could hide the dog food from your mum?

    Just a thought.

    imo, you taking complete responsibility for the dog removes any ownership your parents may or may not have had over her. It's your choice. By the sounds of it, I doubt the situation will improve to the degree you want it to, because your parents apparently have very different ideas of how they want Dora to be

    I have a question (yet, another one). When I place the food down and go inside, Dora eats one bite and tries to follow me. Do I let her inside, and not give her the food? This morning I stayed outside with her... really hope Im not disruppting the TOT.

    I am pretty sure the TOT says you MUST leave them when they are eating...so leave and see what happens...if she doesn't eat, she weill be hungry later
