[VIDEO] How to Make Mealtime Safer, Healthier and More Fun

As any restaurateur can tell you, presentation matters. I’m not exactly a chef but I think the rule certainly holds true for our pets. Here’s what I’ve learned about the best ways to prepare and present meals for Eko and Penny: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qn-XM9bILd8

Comments for [VIDEO] How to Make Mealtime Safer, Healthier and More Fun

  1. great video… and I’m glad you filled the bowl before Penny started to eat Eko :o) btw: how have you made the video from the inside of your food container? have you hired someone who was inside with the cam ?

    Bailie is the first dog Mom ever had who loved to eat. Both Katie and I had little interest in food as pups. I still am a slow, picky eater and Katie has gone back to picking at meals in her senior years. Bailie learned to slow down with slow feeder bowls. She sometimes eats from them still, but often has a regular bowl. We all have to wait, and wait, and wait for our meals just like Eko and Penny. Feeding a dog sounds simple, but there really is a lot to it if you do it right.

    When our Riley wandered into our yard as a small pup, he wasn’t used to regular meals and was a bit food aggressive. So I started feeding him from my hand for weeks, then graduated to the food bowl, with my hand in the bowl giving him bits of food while he ate. After several months, no problems. Now that he’s a senior dog, he wants me to stand next to him while he eats. (Except for Sunday’s when the kids get a small portion of wet food added to their meals). I do make Bentley sit before she can eat, she is not a super fast eater, but generally finishes before Riley.

    After they have eaten everything in their bowl (including licking it and inhaling all the smells) Kaci and Kali switch bowls. Maybe the other dog missed something.

    I too keep the kibble in a locked container inside the pantry away from the prying nose.Since Nikki is an only child I buy the 15lb bag because I think the food is fresher and the bag is lighter for me to lift when I transfer it into the storage container.I use a plastic measuring cup to measure out her food,a combination of kibble and home cooked meat and vegetables.Of course this is not to mention the banana she shares with Daddy before he leaves in the morning,the blueberries she gets in her treat dispenser and,and,and.She is a 77 pound omnivore!

  6. I love the slow feed bowls. I got one for Neeka, but the channels were a little too narrow for her. She figured out very quickly, that if you put your paw on the edge and flip it with your nose….voila. Eating off the floor is much easier, except when food scatters under the oven or lands in the water bowl. That drove her mad. We too, don’t let them eat until we release them. There has to be eye contact first and our word. Khoi caught on very quickly as a pup. Now balancing treats on the nose? We’ll leave that to the master, Mr Eko.

    Oh my gosh Will your children are starving – can you not see that in those looks of sheer pity……..I’m surprised in your absence they haven’t got on the computer and traded you in…….lol

  8. If a drool bomb hits the floor does anyone hear it? 😉

  9. Jo Rhodes says:

    My boys just figured out how to climb on a chair and they just stole 2 brand new bags of training treats. Mama is NOT happy!

  10. fredrieka says:

    when I first came here I used to inhale my food. Momwithoutpaws purchased a special dish like that. I did not like it, so I flipped it over.

  11. Great points…we especially appreciate the mention on measuring. So many obese dogs because people think that coffee cup is really a ‘cup’. It’s not.
