    Default Eating Problem

    So I thought about posting this up in the food section, but it's really not about food in that way!

    Ever since I switched to Fromms, which was quite a while ago, we've had a hard time adjusting to the tiny kibbles. And by we, I mean me and my wife, not Taco! Our feeding bowl is on a carpet, and when he eats, he manages to fling about 15% around the general vicinity of his food bowl, or wherever he ends up while he finishes working them out of his jowls!

    I'd like it if from made a larger kibble, but I don't know if it would help much! Does anybody else face this battle daily? I feel like I sweep up about half a cup a day!

    Use a very large bowl. There is plenty of space so the kibble will not fall off the sides.

    I wonder if that's the issue. Our bowl is pretty large to start with. Even if we did get a larger bowl, the radius seems to be up to 2 feet, lol.

    Frankie does the same thing. Food all over and stuck in his jowls, its pretty funny when he shakes his head and food flies out. He then turns into a Hoover and cleans up!

    Taco is pretty much done when he's done. We could leave his full ration of the day out, and he would only eat when he's hungry. I know it's weird, just the way he is. He's certainly not cleaning the floor when he's done!

    He doesn't go around eating them up? Banks was like this, but nothing was ever left behind - she would go looking for what she dropped or 'got away'

    He doesn't! He could care less. It's possible I just got a messy bulldog?

    I wonder if you put a tennis ball in his bowl to slow him down would help with the food flinging. When Elsa gets going on her food she eats so fast and furious that they are flying all over the place but Buster cleans it all up after.

    He's ball crazy, putting s ball in his food would be like putting a beer in mine!
