Guest NSGREY Posted January 31, 2012 Share Posted January 31, 2012 Ok I'm not sure how to handle this scenario or what it means. We took down the crates for each of the dogs in the fall because we were planning to sell our house and it was what the agent recommended. In the past when the dogs would eat Adora would get growly at what I am assuming her persception that Higgins is looking at her food to eat. He's not as he won't even look in her direction. I watch to see if I catch him posing a threat to her food. They were always fed in a crate each side by side. She has a tendency of not eating her food or eating very little at mealtime but it's like the old saying " I don't want it but I don't want you to have it either" So...I'm now at the stage where while watching Adora and Higgins eat she got up and rushed over to him while he has laying down happily licking his bowl clean and lunges at his head snapping and growling. It seems like she gets irritated at him because he happily eats everything and she tries to pull this diva act that the food is not good enough for her today.... This has to stop and now before I have a fight on my hands...but I need to know what causes this? does this mean that I just have a food agressive dog?? I will be feeding them in separate areas I guess We just don't have a lot of area in which to separate them in. Forgive me if I seem dense but I'm trying to understand this in doggie language.
