Hunting or Prison Eating? 👨🏼💻Wait what? Far too many dogs are fed in such a way that promotes an unhealthy ritual of eating. Eating should be enjoyable, not competitive. Eating should be nourishing not fearful. Eating should be enriching, not mundane. 🐶What is a dog? A natural born predator. We can work at it as much as we like, but even the best professionals need to manage their dogs predatory instincts. 👓Why then don’t we let them hunt for their food? Given a choice they would hunt, no doubt. That’s what gets many dogs into trouble! 👮🏼♂️Jumping on tables, urinating on chairs, eating cat poo, digging through the garbage, ripping the washing off of the line and so much more! 🗣How can this be addressed with minimal fuss?
1️⃣First step: Through the food bowl away
2️⃣Second step: Spread the meal around the apartment, garden or house
3️⃣Third step: release the hound! 🏡If you have a yard then you can easily spread the food around the lawn and your dog will learn to forage there. 🙊A great boredom buster, confidence booster and enrichment tool. Another benefit is that a predator will not defecate on their table. Meaning trawling for land mines gets easier!
