    Default Is this a normal EBD thing????

    In the morning I put out 1/2c food in 2 different bowls-I have Norm and Phoebe the pizza freak Jack Russell. Then I am gone till 4. I come home and I don't think Norm has moved off the couch and it looks like little to no food has been eaten from either bowl. Then once I'm home and everyone is stirring around, Norm eats breakfast. Then dinnertime-ish I put out a cup in each bowl (Fromm Beef Fritatta). Usually by 10-11pm one bowl is completely gone and one has been a little sampled. I know Norm eats the bulk of the food. Phoebe is a lot more active and she eats when he isn't. Her weight is holding steady so I know she's eating. But I think it's weird that Norm doesn't eat until I get home. Maybe it's a Norm thing?

    My dogs won't eat until I am home or if I'm not the one who feeds them

    Could just be a Norm thing.... when I worked at a doggie daycare, there were a few of the dogs (not EBD) that would not eat if left alone. So, we had to stand by the crate until they finished eating

    Raven likes to eat when I am in the kitchen with her. Once I put down the food, if I walk away she walks away with me, then will return when I got back and finish her meal. She is also good for coming over to me and wiping her mouth on my pants/legs/skirt once she is done and then gives me a little burp. Guess she is telling me she enjoyed her meal and thanks.

    Rocky won't eat if I'm not there with him, He won't eat if any other pets are around, He wants to eat alone, when i'm with him, or he would rather not eat at all, Thats a typical Bully, I also read somewhere thats how Bullys were, So I'd say its the norm…

    Dually will sample his food in the morning and then go back and lay on the recliner. My husband gets home before me in the evening so he gives them dinner. Dually will not touch his food until after I get home and say Hi to him, then he runs for the bowl and eats the whole thing!! He's such a mama's boy!!

    They do have their own way of doing things. Most of our girls could care less who's around or not around when it comes to food. They just scarf it down. Buddy used to be a picky eater, but now he loves to eat again. Diva is the picky one now.

    Lord have mercy LOL now I am wondering if there is something wrong with Hurley....... she would eat me if I allowed her too. She will eat at anytime, anywhere, and anything. If you drop something on the floor, forget about it.. it's gone.

    Doesn't matter to her who is feeding her she eats. Seriously I know she is normal. Or not. Oh well I love her anyway !

    Hold on Kimmy, I'm talking about out of a Pet Dish, My Bully observes the two second rule, Thats different, if food other than kibble hits the floor, its consumed in 2 seconds, I'm just talking out of the pet dish itself lol, Thats different. I feed Rocky morning and evening, and when I feed him, if I walk out of the room, he's following me, So as long as i'm with him, he's all in for eating his food, as long as theres not another pet around, Rockys not food bowl aggressive at all.

    Lmao...I try to make sure now I am out of my work clothes before I set down her food bowl. Otherwise every single day my clothes have food slobber on them. Gotta love the fact that they just need to investigate what is going on with the ones the love.

    I don't really go out like that during the week, normally it's straight home after work. Recently maybe three times I had things to take care of after work and I left the feeding to the kids and hubby. Well when I got home she hadn't touched her food. The first time I guess it might have also annoyed her that they didn't put any yummies in for her (carrot slices, broccoli, peas, a touch of wet food), then the second time even though they did, she still wouldn't eat until I got home. Gotta love these stinkers.
