Dogs are the best friends of man, an obvious statement but we at times get frustrated of handling them. Sometimes they bark and sometimes they bite, yes even to their owners and most of the times the reason is FOOD, especially if you have a forever-hungry dog breed, e.g. Labrador.
Many times I have heard people complaining that their dogs become very furious if someone tries to touch them during their food time. They growl as you touch their bowl. Therefore people prefer leaving their dogs alone, while they are consuming their food.
But this is not a MUST scenario. If you are one of those who love cuddling their little bundle of joy all the time, despite what activities they are into then just follow TWO small suggestions.
EAT WITH THEM!!
Yes you heard me right. Sit on the floor, keep your food next to them and eat with them. I do not mean eat from the same plate but feed them while you are having your own food. Put one bite in your own mouth and place one in their bowl. This might sound crazy but it will teach them to SHARE. They will WAIT for their turn and learn PATIENCE. Also because they will be dependent on you for each bite, they will not growl at you but look at you with their innocent eyes while dripping saliva on the floor.
Also, take turns while feeding him. If you are a family of four, make sure everyone feeds him. This will help him associate all the family members with food and thus make him more LOYAL and keep him off his biting habits.
Dogs love getting loved and there is nothing you can’t teach them with some pampering and little treats and you can also save yourself from all the Rabies injections.
