If you are a multi-pet owner and want to provide personalized nutrition for each of your dogs, you will likely need training. Here are some steps that may help:

  • Individual bowls: Purchase two separate bowls for each dog. This will help them realize that they have their own utensils for eating.
  • Regular feeding: Set a consistent feeding time every day. This will help create a ritual and your pets will expect food at a certain time.
  • Specific place to eat: Designate a specific area for each dog where they will eat. This could be near their resting place or on a special mat.
  • Behavior monitoring: Closely monitor your dogs behavior while eating. If one of them tries to go to the other’s bowl, calmly redirect him to his place.
  • Positive reinforcement: Reward desired behavior with positive reinforcement. Praise and give each pet a treat when he stays in his place and eats from his bowl.
  • Repetition and reinforcement: Repeat this process at each feeding and continue to maintain the desired behavior.
  • Avoid punishment: Do not use punishment for unwanted behavior. Instead, redirect dogs to their places and reward positive behavior.
  • Patience: Remember that learning takes time. Be patient and consistent in your approach. Over time, your dogs will learn to calmly eat from each of their bowls.
