Romeo is 6 month and eats Buffalo puppy food. Sometimes he chokes on his food if i give him 1 or 2 for treat. ALSO i think he eats his food WAY to fast. I give him a lil more than a half a cup for breakfast and a lil more than half a cup for dinner. but hes done before you know it. What should i do?!?!?

*************** Also Romeo thinks hes in charge of me. He walks infront of me, and bites me when i put him on my bed or when i use the computer. --__-- sigh what should i do. Or give my attention to my baby sister and boyfriend

I use a lot of Cesar Millan's training methods with Heidi and they seem to work well. Here's the website: . He might have some suggestions for getting your dog to stop biting. Good luck!

They have dog food bowls that are designed to slow down fast eaters. They are bowls with a large rise in the middle, so the dog has to eat around the cone instead of inhaling the whole bowl of food. You can also make him work for his food in a Kong. My freind Amy has been known to do that, her Dauchsund is a pig and will eat anything in a second. She does that to slow down the meal and burn a few calories at the same time.

Even though my Ed is 'grain-free', I don't see need to stop this next-door neighbor (who loves Ed) flings a little handful of Cheerio's over the fence every day. This is one of the highlights to Ed's day, and it takes him about a half an hour to find all the Cheerio's in the grass. I've often thought it would be a good way to feed him his meals, too.

ty for that clever idea. DEF will do that since that bowl cost way too much in petsmart and petco

You can also put an fairly heavy, small object in the middle of the food bowl. (I use a vitamin bottle) I do that with Ein and he eats slower since he has to eat around it.

i should really try that bowl. Thank you. Jane, i tried the OW, yelp, high pitch and ignoring him. He gets more excited when i yelp or even make a sound. He stops than does it harder. He have lots of toy but i think he likes my hand more. T___T And i will def try the opposite direction thing (yes he is on a leash).

I was going to suggest the bowl too.I don't have personal experience with this but read about the bowl.When he nips the best thing to do is say ouch or ow real loud put him down and turn ignoring him completely for his behavior. That's what I did for Wynn when he would try to nip at my ankles when he was young and it worked well. When he walks in front of you is he on a leash? then turn and go the other direction so he has to turn. He's still young and his teeth could still be giving him some problems...does he get plenty of chew toys??? Maybe a toy he likes by you to give him while your on the computer???
Good Luck!

My Aussie is the same way. I had to buy him a "slow down" bowl at PetSmart. It's basically just a bowl with raised ridges so they have to work a little harder to get the food and they can really only eat one piece at a time which encourages chewing rather than gulping. Sky didn't like it at first and would stare at his bowl and whine, but he got over it quickly. While he still manages to eat with the slow down bowl pretty fast, it is better than if his food were in a regular bowl. Good luck!
