I've edited my post and apologized and sent you a PM Smiley Happy

 

Sorry again, I was being a half-awake bad-tempered b*tch.

 

On topic - ever since someone tried to poison our Doberman when I was a kid, all subsequent dogs were trained that unless edibles are handed to them or are in their bowl, they do not eat it. I feed the cats on the kitchen floor and Murphy would not touch it. If I want to feed him leftover catfood, which the cats turn their noses up at, I have to place the cat's dish in his bowl or he won't eat it.

That's excellent policy which I will implement with my next dog. (My current property has a very large, enclosed backyard with one long side adjacent to a pedestrian alley.)
Katie came to me as a 4-year old, accompanied by her 4 1/2-year old sister, Margaret the cat. Margaret was 7 lbs of fur and 70 lbs of attitude and bossed Katie around mercilessly. M's food was kept elevated to keep it away from Katie. Strangely, it didn't have to be out of reach, just as long as it was off the floor, Katie considered it out of bounds. Margaret would not drink water from her own bowl, only from K's bowl (or the toilet or, if she could cajole me into it, from a trickling faucet). When Katie died and I took up her dishes, I realized after a day or so that Margaret wasn't drinking water at all. I had to put Katie's bowl back down for a few weeks. We were both very sad.

My dogs ask before eating something they find, which is usually sort of charming, but not so much when, just for example, Daisy finds a piece of pizza crust I must have dropped taking out the garbage and wakes me up at 3 a.m. to find out if it's okay to eat.

Great idea Petra!

 

I'll remember that as I add to my canine family. 

 

Currently, my Belgian Malinois investigates even the food that I GIVE HIM in his bowel. Mind you, he's a big spoiled brat lol. But, still...I guess the police/military dogness that is he just naturally wants to investigate whatever he's being fed. Doesn't matter what I give him....tasty treats...dog food...he performs his own canine examination before consuming.
