That's interesting....my last GSD would pretty much only eat her meals if I was right next to her....so I just continued with it...she'd eat her meals in the TV room with her bowl by my easy chair and dinners in the same place. In the beginning, if I left her food bowl out in the kitchen and left, she would hardly touch it..as soon as I moved it to the TV room next to me..she'd enjoy the entire meal...always wondered if my close proximity might have made her feel she needs to eat otherwise I might eat it.....and she NEVER exhibited any overt food aggression whatsoever....maybe she was just a social eater ...LOL
Maybe someone knows what this means, when a dog is more apt to eat while someone is with them.
I guess if your pup eats while in your presence and it makes you feel better ( it would for me)...then run with it.
