Have you ever wondered why your dog flips her food bowl and then eats the food from the floor or carries food off to another area of the house to eat it?
We have listed the 10 most common reasons:
1. The Bowl is too small for her snout and eating from it is uncomfortable.
2. They don’t like the smell of the detergent you used to clean it
3. The bowl is dirty or his food is rancid. Make sure bugs haven’t invaded the bowl and change the food regularly, especially if you pour water in it.
4. The bowl is too deep and it may cause discomfort or difficulty reaching the bottom of the bowl
5. For larger dogs, bending to eat from a bowl on the floor may cause discomfort in their joints.
6. Your dog’s ID tags or collar may hit the metal or glass bowl while she is eating and that frightens her
7. The metal bowl may slide while she eats, causing scary sounds as it slides along tile or hits the wall
8. Your dog gives Into their scavenger side by dumping the food on the floor. Eating out of bowls and dishes is a human behavior that we introduce to our domestic dogs
9. When dogs hunted for their food, the weaker dogs often carried their portion of the meal to another area to eat it away from the pack. This lowered the likelihood of having it stolen or having to fight for it. Domestic dogs sometimes revert back to their ancestor’s behavior and carry the food away, even if the threat is imaginary.
10. Your other animals may steal your dog’s food or show some aggression during mealtime. Your dog may choose this flight over fight behavior. Likewise, if humans commonly interfere with the dog during mealtime, your dog is looking for an escape.
