Dog's Eating Habits

Do your dogs eat their food at their bowl? Or do they walk away with their food? Do you know what I mean?? Snooper and Tito take one little piece of dog food and walk 5 feet away to eat it. Manto takes a big ol mouthful, walks 5 feet away. Drops it all on the floor and then eats it up. Dork.

Bach (my GSD that passed away) never did this, he ate like a *normal* dog.

Ok, so are my dogs the only wierd ones out there?? Do your dogs do this??

My older Jack Russell does. I never understood why mom chose to feed him on carpet when he does this. The others just eat right at their bowl.

Same here

our golden takes a mouth full and drops it to eat and this is where my problem with feed my toy poodle because he eats what the golden drops. before we got the poodle we found dog food all over the place at least now the poodle eats it. But I am sure the 5 month old toy poodle shouldn't eat the adult large breed food??? Both dogs are nibblers I would really have a job on my hands to feed separatly once or twice a day.

haha! mine do this, but they take it about 1 foot away. penny is so funny, though, because sometimes she will take ONE little bitty piece of food and go to another room with it and put it on the floor and try to bury it with her nose. ONE piece. i have to just make her eat it by acting like i'm gonna take it from her! haha! she's always tried to bury food or her food bowl with her nose.

I voted "no" because ours don't do that, however we have had foster's in the past that have done that.

My red Doberman, Scarlette, will tip her bowl over and then eat her food. She does try to bury it on occasion. Riley will eat out of the dish but when she's in a wild mood she will pick her bowl up and run through the house scattering dog food everywhere!

My Mandy and Lacey both eat at the bowl but I voted that some of my dogs do because before Lacey will eat she takes a few pieces, then a few more about 5 ft. from the bowl for Mandy to eat so she won't bother her!

Gumbo did it initially but has since gotten better at eating at the bowl.

Orion takes a big mouthful of food, brings it into the living room, eats it, and then walks over to the closest person to wipe the mush from his lips onto you leg. Then he goes back for another mouthful and repeats the process.

Kali usually eats right at the bowl but sometimes brings a mouthful to the livingroom, drops it and then eats it. (she never wipes her lips on us though )

Can someone add a new option?

"My dog used to take his food away from his bowl to eat it."

When I first got my ACD pup, Levi, he would grab a mouthful of food from his bowl, run off and partially hide to eat it. After he realized he had NO competition for his food, he stopped doing that. (I am guessing he had a hard time getting food in his litter. )

Charlotte does that! I thought that since she was a stray before we got her, she did that cause she was used to eat from the floor. She takes a mouthful and drops in near her bowl... eats it and then takes another mouthful and drops it near the bowl...

Odie eats from his bowl, but likes to try and bury it with his nose usually scattering a few bits around. I tell him not to do that and he looks at me with a face that says "but mom, it'll go away!"

Why not eliminate the bowl and put her food on the floor, Padfoot?

My old Black Lab that I had used to do that, it almost seemed as though, she was checking for contamination. And she didn't want to ru in what was left in her dish, if any of it was contaminated.
