How to train my dog to eat at food bowl?
Topic: How to train my dog to eat at food bowl?
July 21, 2019 / By Cleve Question:
I have a 5 yr old golden. I got her about a yr ago and i don't know how to brake this habit. She goes to her food bowl fills her mouth with food and then takes it to another room to eat it. This is fine other then she leaves half the food on the floor. So there will be a kernel here and a kernel there. Stepping on it is like stepping on a rock and it gets sucked up in my vacuum which will eventually ruin it. I would love to know how many bags of food has been wasted in the yr that i have had her. I don't know how to stop her from doing this. Any ideas?

Feed the dog in a small room (such as the bathroom or pantry). Stay with her as she eats and praise her while she does. After a week or so of this, feed her in her normal place again staying with her and praising her if she stays near her food bowl. If she attempts to leave the area, stop her and bring her back to her bowl...then lots of praise or a special treat. Keep that up until she stays near her food bowl at meal time.

Why wait until April, I can get you in shape in three months, there are alot of things to consider like your weight, endurence, metabolism and things like that, but first, go to a track and run one mile (4 laps) if you can, if you can't then start at 1 lap and go to the track three times a week until you can run 1 mile at a comfortable pace and then time it. Map out 1 and 2 mile running courses on bike trails or somewhere where the traffic is slow and start running the one mile course for about 3 weeks, 3 to 4 times a week, and you'll start noticing your time and endurence improving to the point that you will eventually run longer and longer and faster each time until you reach the two mile course and finish it at a comfortable pace. Then go back to the track and run the 1 mile again at about 80% effort and you find a big and faster difference in the time. Continue to run 1 to 2 miles at about 70% effort for the next three weeks and continue going to the track once a week too to check out your progress on the clock. The biggest thing is you don't want to overtrain and peak too soon. Cross training at the same time will help you get to that 30 minute mark easily. Eat healthy and try high complex carbo food the night before you train. Drink alot of fluids and stay away from the carbonated stuff. Once you feel comfortable after reaching the 2 mile workouts then it's all down hill. If you can get a course map of the run in April, then start working out on that course too. After about two months of this type of training, time all of your runs with one mile split time checks. Ten minute splits are kinda slow, you may surprise yourself with a much better time at race time as long as you stay motivated and consistant with your training. If you wait until April then just thin out the schedule based om what I shared with you.
Hi, I understand that you are looking for some advice or resources to help fully train your dog or fix behavior problems. If a professional dog trainer is not an option at this time, or if you want to trt training your dog on your own (a great way to bond), I'd suggest you https://bitly.im/aNWNn
A friend recommened it to me a few years ago, and I was amazed how quickly it worked, which is why I recommend it to others. The dog training academy also has as an excellent home training course.

Try feeding her where ever she is taking the food to eat it, maybe she is more comfortable there? Dont give her too much, just fill the bottom of the bowl and then fill some more when she is done, slowly move her to where ever you want her to be fed. If she still tries it, try feeding her in her crate and let her out when she is completely finished.

It's instinct from their ancestors. My dogs do that, too. Mine also like to hide their food all around the house and in the couch cushions! I found a dried up rock hard pizza crust buried in my couch! If it really bothers you, you can confine her in a room while she eats.

You can't improve your ability in the next 4 days, so work on what you can control:
1. Make sure you have good walking or running shoes that fit and don't give you blisters. Try them out on a 30 minute walk/jog today. If they bother you, find some good shoes tonight.
2. Eat healthy foods for the next 4 days. Don't change your diet too much, to prevent stomach problems.
3. Rest. Get those 8 or 9 hours of sleep that your body need for the next 3 nights.
4. Wear comfortable clothing on your run day. Find shorts and a shirt that don't chafe.
5. Drink some water before the start, maybe 30-60 minutes before the start.
With that, you'll be fine I expect. Start off at a jog, and run if you can. If you get tired, slow down. It's just for fun, right?
