Me @ it again
question for you all....
What is the best way to get your dogs into a feeding habit? My Pepper is a lab and loves her food, when she was with our other lab who has now passed away she would eat her food all in one go, I think because she was scared the other lab would eat it. However now with our Staffy X Charlie they graze all day, She will eat most of both bowls as they are left to sit outside all day, which I know isn't the right way to feed them.
The only way they eat their food all in one go is if I mix wet food all through their biscuits, they then gulp it down, however I am not sure if a bit of wet food everyday is the answer?
People have mentioned to just be hard, start putting their food out for them before work, give them half an hour if they don't eat it put it away and not allow them to eat again until when I get home from work, if their hungry they will eat it.
Our lab pepper is a few kgs overweight however she doesn't get many treats, only has dry food and goes on a 40 minute walk twice daily, so I want her feeding habits to be correct before she starts to get problems.
Our Charlie is absolute perfect weight, and he has the same exercise and feeding habits as her.
your thoughts and opinions are greatly appreciated
