Re: Do you eat before or after your dog?
I now have four dogs here, two unaltered males, and they all eat before me. It doesn't matter. As far as dominance, they all have to perform something for me before they eat, a sit or down. Then I call them by names and place the food next to them, or whatever spot in the room I want them to eat.
What does seem to matter is the order of who gets fed. The oldest dog gets fed first, no matter that he was not the first dog living here. He is more dominant. Then the two girls are fed last, usually the puppy in her crate.
That's most amount of dominance I show my dogs where food is concerned.
