Two old dogs hitting the open road can get pretty monotonous, so when I have a chance to change it up, I take it.
With the addition of a new puppy in the family this presents an even greater challenge. My older dog tends to graze, she eats a little bit of food and then comes back to the bowl whenever she feels hungry again. That is until the five-month-old puppy comes around, and then all bets are off and it’s a race to the finish! I’ll admit I was skeptical at first. Would Dita give me the side-eye and demand her bowl back? Would the puppy think it was a new toy and flip it over spilling the kibble all over my kitchen floor? I was about to find out.
I sprinkled the kibble into the rug (according to the directions) as if I was sprinkling birdseed into the grass, and I waited. Then the strangest thing happened; They both ate, side-by-side, slowly foraging for each bite, without growling at each other, or giving me dirty looks!
It worked, and I was blown away. For the first time they ate without choking food down, without fighting, and they actually finished all their food, and got some mental stimulation, as an added bonus!
