I've noticed over time that my dog does not get all hyped up to eat when I put food down for her.. Maybe she is picky... Or maybe she just isn't sure if she is supposed to take the food, but either way it has brought some thoughts to my attention recently. How do YOU feed your dog? -Do you leave a bowl of food out and full all of the time so your dog can enjoy as it wants? -Do you feed the same amount a few times a day and take it away if it isn't finished within a certain amount of time? -Have a feeder that holds a whole heap of food that just releases as your dog eats away.. -Feed one time a day? -Feed while you are eating? The variations are fairly endless, but I'd like to hear how everyone else is doing it, and then also give their opinion on other methods that they like/dislike or have had good/bad luck with. I am contemplating keeping a larger dish of food full for Emma because sometimes she eats right when I put the food down, and other times she looks at me like she'd rather chew on toys and have the food in a bit. But, I'm a first time dog owner, and would like to hear everyone's opinion on feeding methods such as this.
