Marker, Clicker, operant conditioning.
No time to explain right now, but you can search for those things and get a good understanding.

Yep! Good suggestion for the OP. Why waste that drive. My male still trains for most of his meals and he will be a year this month. Not only has he worked on all kinds of obedience behaviors but fun kibble games that build drive to interact with me. We have free-shaped wearing a muzzle; done foundation work for the dumbbell retrieve and lots more. There are a ton of things that can be accomplished with a hungry, energetic pup at feeding time!

|Sunflowers||Feed them in separate rooms. There's no reason why the older dog should have to put up with the rude puppy behavior at meal time. Also, if you don't have the other dog present and you have his full attention, you can wait until he sits and looks at you before putting down his food. This would be much more easily accomplished without the presence and distraction of the other dog.|

Thanks for the advice. I will definitely start just giving them the food at the same time. One reason I wasn't giving him his food right away was because he was jumping around and barking wanting his food. So I was trying to get him to calm down first and learn the wait command. But I do always put the older ones down first then the puppy's.
I am definitely learning that is for sure. I think I have read way to much trying to enusre I ger this right and maybe I am messing it up anyways.
My poor little guy is teething and has growing pains in his right front leg. He isn't doing to well right now. Just sleeping alot. He has taken over the couch.

|Michele Maxcy||I feed my two dogs in different locations. Main reason is my black lab will eat the shepherd's food along with her own. I don't think it's a good idea to make one dog wait while watching another dog eat. Even my lab wouldn't stand for that.|
