    Default Like a scavenger

    My girl has been driving me crazy lately. In the last month, she sits there while I'm cooking and waits for me to walk away from that spot. As soon as I walk away she goes over and starts linking and sniffing the floor, even I don't drop anything. I don't feed her people food, so I don't know why this started. The problem is she is constantly in the way and soaks the floor so it gets slick. She acts like I don't feed her, yet she inhales her food twice a day.

    Hey there, welcome! Now who's the boss? Up to you to say, "Hey Missy, OUT the kitchen when im cooking!" Basically it's for her safety and yours. Slick floors can be dangerous especially holding a pot of boiled water or hot pan! Every dog I ever had, as soon as I take a pot out, trust me they knew to go sit or lay outside the kitchen. My kitchen, my rule. Training time.

    I am also guilty as charged except that I sometimes have four dogs in the kitchen. They don't move around they just sit there looking pathetic and blocking the stove.

    They always take the most awkward position to obstruct a passage or in the centre! And they give LOOKS, and SIGHS as you are cooking, but not sharing.

    it is called... BULLDOG! My guy is the same way... he could have just eaten a whole bag of food and will sit there, drool, soak the floor and lick the floor after I walk away. Nothing dropped, spilled or left behind.
