Default Logan Politely Warned Abby Today

I feed Abby in her crate and Logan is fed on a towel at the opposite side of the room. This morning I fed them as usual except I didn't lock the crate door. Well, miss Abby finished her chicken leg before Logan and she snuck over to his side of the room. I had my back to them fixing a salad for my lizard. I heard a very low growl and turned to see that Abby was sniffing around Logan's towel. Just as I was going to grab Abby's collar to lead her back to her crate Logan snapped at her. It was the most gentle "snap" I think I've ever seen. LOL He was telling her politely to back off and she listened all on her own and went back to her crate until he was finished. I don't like having dogs together while they're eating nor do I like testing them like this so this will not become a habit for us, but I was very proud of how Logan handled the situation and of course how Abby took the hint. Good dogs I've got!

Awww!!! WTG Logan for having restrant AND Abby for taking the hint. Belah is younger than Jaxon and she attacks him for their treats. I treat him first then her and she just takes it out of his mouth. (of course he lets her)...not sure why.

I am glad that it didnt turn into something else.

A couple days ago my neighbor called me in tears. In November her 1 year old GSD was hit by a car in front of her house. It should never have happened as I have let them borrow my 10 x 30 dog run because their yard is not fenced in and they are on the crest of a hill. It was total laziness on her part and her dog paid with his life.

Anyways for Christmas they got a brand spanking new GSD puppy from the same breeder. He was adorable as most puppies are. On Monday I see a posting on FB from her asking if anyone has a bunch of dogs she can introduce to her puppy because he was nervous. She btw has another large mixed breed 2yr old male in her home. She and I got into it a bit because I warned her about how she was going about socializing her puppy and tried to tell her she could do more harm than good. She responded with, he is fine in my house and with my other dog, they even share the same food bowl, its just new dogs he is snappy with.



What do you mean they are sharing the same food bowl??? Not a smart idea but she said her older male was fine with it and would just walk away. Two days go by......and this is when I get the phone call.

Her 2 year old male snapped at the puppy while eating and literally snapped his neck in one quick action. Thats how fast it happened. They rushed to the vet as he was still breathing, just not responding with eye blinking. His spinal cord had been severed.

I dont care how good you think your dogs are regarding food. They are animals and their instints will kick in. Dogs respond by using their mouths, they can cause harm or even death. Respect them while they eat and give them the necessary space they need.

I was very proud of how they both handled it, but like I said above I won't be testing them again any time soon!

Oh trust me, I'm the one always preaching about leaving dogs alone while they eat and sleep, and basically just respecting them as what they are. Especially Mason who is very protective of his food. That's why he's fed alone upstairs while I feed the other two downstairs. I've been dealing with a lot lately and have a lot on my mind right now, it's definitely not laziness just in a bit of a head fog situation at the moment. I just didn't lock her crate door as I always do. I was still in the room, just didn't notice her sneaking out.

Mandy, I hope I didnt come across as preaching at you cause that wasnt my intention at all. I just wanted others to know that these things can happen and to always feed in separate spaces.

Good job Logan! Yea, I feed my dogs in separate places, facing away from each other, and I hang around until the last dog is finished. My moocher is actually my 12.5 lb. westie/bichon mix - lol! She's the one I really have to watch!! She has absolutely no shame...

It's hard at my house bc penny is a grazer and after his neuter Wyatt finally got on a morning and evening feeding. But sometimes Wyatt sneaks her food and she (bitches) at him and he backs off, but when she goes for his food he just sits there and looks at me like mom she's doing it again! Penny ( min pin btw) very food aggressive.... I never put my hands near her mouth when eating.... Wyatt has never showed any signs of it. I'm constantly putting my hands in his mouth, brush his teeth, check his gums, when he was a puppy puppy we would put our fingers near his mouth and take up his food bowl and put it down.... I think that helped with him not to be aggressive. Not saying he would never snap, bc one day he might.

Why were a small puppy and adult dog eating the same food? Shouldn't the pup have been on puppy food.... Just curious....
