    Default Feeding time

    Just wondering if anyone else has the same situation where when its feeding time their bulldog attacks the food like its the first time they've eaten in a year, I'm also pretty sure that if a bag of food dropped on the floor Zeus would eat and eat until it was gone haha

    When mine are pups-they do that 3 times a day-sharks! One is 5 mo. and still eats like a shark. The two 1/2 breeds(not meaning to insult them) are pickier eaters-much slower) The other Eng. is a year, has become more "ladylike" with her eating-but if she ever refuses to eat-she will go straight to the vet! And yes, they all have to sit before receiving their food!

    Yes, both my bullies have done this… I make Winston do a sit/stay before he gets his bowl!!!

    I also make Ellie earn her food with a "Go to your crate" and a "sit." Sometimes, she'll come out of her crate while I'm getting her food ready and I'll stop and look at her. She'll eventually do a 360 circle and run back to her crate and I'll then continue to get her food ready.

    I have a 6 year old that still does this. My dogs are resource guarders with the raw diet. One time, I left 20 lbs of green tripe still in the plastic sleeves tied with metal clips inside a grocery bag on the chair next to the freezer.... The whole thing was gone... eaten... including the plastic sleeves and metal clips... the only thing left is small pieces of plastic sleeve and the grocery bag... I had to poke their cannon butt poop with a stick to count metal clips...

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    Harlea eats in her crate and she sits while waiting on me to put her food down. Then it is game on and usually only takes her a few minutes or less to eat it all.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    We have one that inhales her food like it was her last meal, and everything she does is food motivated. I think she would do just about anything for food. She ate 7 bags of penny candy from the Bulk Barn once, and the vet had to induce vomiting, she vomited 5 bowls of candy. The vet said she had never see that much candy come out of a dog. Lol. Dozer on the other hand is much more laid back, he will sit and wait for his food. Also because he has a jaw defect, where his upper and lower jaw don't meet, his teeth don't meet, so he eats slower to begin with. I always add water to the food to make it easier for him to eat.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
