There's Dog Food In The Dog Bowls!!!!

AMAZING isn't it!!!

Dinner time went really well tonight with Polo and Chelsea...

First they ate from their respective bowls with me sitting at attention between the two of them as I have been doing since night one.

After they are "basically done" eating is when the trouble begins because Polo will "walk away but still guard the bowl" and then become vicious since Chelsea needs to investigate etc etc..

Well tonight he decided to growl and snap... so I sent him outside on the porch (glass sliding door between him and his bowls) where he got to watch Chelsea eat from his bowl for 5 seconds... then he was let back in...

Then she stuck her nose back in his bowl... he stuck his nose in the bowl with her..then he looked at me like "ugh if I kick her butt you're going to send me out again arn't you? "

So I PRAISED THE HECK OUT OF HIM!!!!!!!!!! I mean MEGA PRAISE!!!! so much commotion caused the three kids to come in and watch the ordeal...

Well he REALLY GOT OFF ON THE PRAISE.... so he then "struts his stuff" and goes to Chelsea's bowl WHILE SHE IS STILL EATING and grabs a kibble from her bowl... from there he goes to each one of us and gets his MEGA PRAISE.

As far as he was concerned he was the smartest dog on the planet... it was as if he learned the most AMAZING TRICK IN THE WORLD.

Lather rinse repeat...he kept "showing off" his new A MAZE ING abilities by going to her bowl (even if just for a sniff) and then walking over to each human (this means four humans by the way lol) to get his praise!

So I've had food in both bowls for about 2.5 hours now and both dogs have occasionally walked over "just to see if it's still there" and calmly walked away. So far Polo has not complained about Chelsea's inspections at all.

This isn't to say the problem is solved as I'm sure there are still going to be incidents.... but WOWZERS From a VICIOUS KILLER ROTT just 48 hours ago to "Look at me I know how to stick my nose in a food bowl...love me!" tonight....



He's so funny though cuz he really does seem think he's God's gift to mankind for being able to do such an awesome trick LOL

Wow! That's awsome! Way to go Polo!! :whoohoo: I think the more this goes on, the better it'll be. I think he was just concerned not knowing what Chelsea's intentions to his food bowl was. Now that he knows she isn't going to steal his share of the pie, he's more relaxed, AND all the extra attention for doing the right thing helps TONS! Way to stick it out!!

I'm supposed to be working so can't stay long lol BUT LOOK AT BREAKFAST!!!!!!!

THEY initiated feeding time... I was able to leave the food in the bowls ALL NIGHT last night w/o incident... and this morning Chelsea began to eat as she normally would.... Polo followed and THEY HAD THEIR FIRST REAL TOGETHER MEAL ALL BY THEMSELVES!!

Since I wasn't stuck playing ref in the middle of them I was able to snag a couple of pics -- woo hoo!!!







Followed by the obvious lol



I am SO PROUD AND RELIEVED!!!! I really didn't think it was possible to make this much progress this quickly. Polo was CRAZY VIOLENT two days ago.... as-in I was fearing he would kill Chelsea.... and now they are like big bro and lil sis just enjoying their life!!! I still monitor very closely of course... but so far so GOOD!
