I’m going to have to make a category for this, if my dogs keep this up.
Aww. Hard to stay mad at that face.
Ceramic bowl might be the solution
Oh, but look at that FACE! I’m immune to puppydog eyes and even I would accept that apology.
Oh, that face! Priceless!
Anyway. Three words: stainless steel bowls. My first dog, the late great Mollydog, taught me this well. All the dogs since know nothing else. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks, Molly.
I’ll second that, stainless steel bowls last forever and are much easier to clean as well. The only downside is the loud CLANG! they make upon being dropped by dogs trying to give you a hint it’s dinner time.
…or just change his name to Shame-us. (I’m probably the 1000th person to suggest that, hun?)
Oh, good. Someone else made the bad joke so I didn’t have to.
It’s time for some stainless steel bowls.
I had to get my cat stainless steel because he was getting huge pimples on his chin. Turns out the scraps in the bottom of plastic bowls breed bacteria like mad. And yes, I washed the bowl twice a day and it didn’t matter.
Switch to steel. Your pup will thank you.
If I were to “dog shame” my Axel, I’d take a picture of him with the receipt for the Apple Macbook power supply and cordless mouse I just had to replace for my son. There’s $150 gone from the Christmas budget real quick-like.
Aw! Stainless steel bowls will put a stop to that. They’re pretty much indestructible.
OH THE FACE 0.0
If it were my pit bull, there’d also be a small mountain of little blue plastic balls of chewed-up nastiness all over my floor. Seamus’ poop should be uh, extra… ornamental… the next few days.
I’m with them up ^there^; stainless steel bowls. They have non-tip and feeder varieties, if your bullies are like mine with the food-confetti-ing and flooding the house.
Yeah, I took one look at the plastic bowls and went “Those will not last one day with my dog.” Stainless steel ftw.
STAINLESS IS DEFINITELY THE PERMANENT ANSWER, BUT UNTIL YOU GET AROUND TO THAT, RUB A LITTLE TABASCO OR CAYENNE AROUND THE BOTTOM. (OR ON ANYTHING COLORFAST THAT GETS CHEWED). IT WON’T HURT THEM, AND IT IS A GOOD DETERRENT.
Maybe its time to up the walks? Changing the bowl wont help, he’ll just chew somethin else if he’s got energy to burn.
A Labrador we used to have would carry his plastic food dish around the yard, throw it up in the air and chase it. The neighbors would point and laugh. One winter it shattered when he did that. We gave him an old heavy aluminum cake pan, that was a little bent up. He still carried it around, but eventually he put holes in it from chewing it. He also chewed a leather collar in two.
Hey…. my friend used to put rock in her dog’s bowl to slow her down while eating. Now she uses a feeding cube. The food goes in a hole, it’s set to how easy or hard it is to get it out, and then Haley (the dog) pushes the cube all over the place and the food falls out. She’s entertained (and so are we) and fed at the same time. PS her dog is a mixed bread but has the same forehead yours has.
I use a stainless bowl with softballs in it to slow down my dog’s eating.
He also suffers from what the veterinarian refers to as “Dietary Indiscretion”; which is the most hilarious veterinary term in existence.
We had this same problem with our Boxer/Plott Hound. This bowl is amazing – http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0033PR7CS/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00
It is stainless steel AND has nifty center thingy for slowing down eating. Can’t recommend it enough!
Awwwwwwwwww ! How about trying one of those self dog feeders?
I agree steel bowl and maybe some kong toys with some treats inside.
Awwww, bad dog! LOL! My kitty is 13 and seems to have garnered stomach problems. I have to feed her like she’s a kitten – if I don’t keep small amounts of food coming all day she’ll chew on plastic and make herself puke. Oddly enough, feeding her like this has eliminated most of her hairball incidents. She now sees her opportunity to chew on plastic wrapping or bags as her signal that she needs food in her tummy, but I’ve also learned to listen to for her stomach growling. The silly thing is I’ve always kept a bowl of kibble available to her in case she gets hungry when I’m not in the house or asleep. It’s the expensive stuff too. Old age and pets. You gotta love it!
How do you get him to sit so perfectly? Whenever i try to take a picture of my dog, he always moves at the exact moment i click the camera.
I suspect my dog is an evil mastermind.
