Good morning all. Hope everyone is having a good Sunday. Things at my house with Kitchee and Wyot are going well, routine is being established, BUT...Wyot refuses to eat his food!
Now, I never had two dogs before. I am assuming he will eventually go back to eating again. I am feeding the two of them in seperate areas- they each have their own space and their own bowls. I put down Alpha dog's food down first (Wyot), then I put down Kitchee's....little guy tears into his food, and Wyot won't touch his! It's almost like he feels "responsible" for Kitchee, and watches over him while he eats. As soon as Kitchee finishes, he sure knows how to go right to Wyot's food bowl, which of course, I take away. I try to give Wyot back his food when Kitchee passes out, but no dice. He just looks at me with these eyes....sigh..
I've given him his Kong, but he refuses to take it in another room, away from his little guy. If he settles with the Kong in the common area, Kitchee takes it away from him, and he lets him! I say no, and take it away. I'm learning too, but I figure it'll settle itself soon enough, but I have to say, as a dog mama, I worry about the food thing. He barely ate two cups of food in the last three and a half days.
Any tips and advice is VERY welcome!!!
Thanks in advance!
