Two dogs and One Eats the Other Food

If you have two dogs and one is jealous of the other and eats the others food what do you do?  This can be a frustrating situation but there are some things that you may want to try to help with the problem. Here is a step by step suggestion.

  • Take both dogs out for a walk and give them a chance to eliminate.
  • Place dog A in the cellar or bathroom.
  • Prepare the dogs food.
  • Confine dog B to the kitchen area.
  • Take dog A’s food dish to him.
  • Deliver dog B’s food dish.
  • Wait for each dog to finish eating before letting them out of their designated areas.
  • Let each dog out to eliminate.

Another option is to feed the dogs separately in their crates. ┬áMake sure that they leave the crate calmly. Don’t keep them in the crate too long after they eat. They can develop a gastric or intestinal problems. They need to go out and unwind. Most dogs go out for a walk after they eat. If you have a fenced in yard, you can let them out for awhile to unwind and eliminate. If not, take them for a short walk.

This may take some work and training but if you feed the dogs separately, they both will have the same amount of food and one dog will not get too heavy from eating too much food while the other becomes skin and bones from not having enough to eat. Good luck!
