  1. Enclosure for feeding dog with food aggression

    Thank you Snook! Your idea worked! So there you all go! Our not so pretty situation we have going on.. One crate for him to wait in, a plank of plywood to lift up and then the second crate to safely place food in and for him to eat. Topped with his blanket for extra comfort and privacy. No contact with him and us while using this and no stress! It worked well for our first night so let’s see how it continues once he gets used to it..

    I’m trying to upload a photo to share but it’s not letting me.. I’m guessing the size is too big. It’s just a standard iPhone photo.. does anyone know how to make it smaller so I can upload it?

    So, just an update for everyone following along.. After discussing it, my husband and I have come up with hopefully a secure idea we hope will work well. We are going out today to pick up what we need so I’ll be sure to update you with how it goes!

    Thank you for sharing and thinking of me! We did think of this! It is a good idea but we are going to try something else first. Thanks again

    So.. he is a very complicated boy that’s for sure! He doesn’t resource guard an area or room. At the moment we put him in the laundry behind a baby gate and then do the food, come back to the laundry and let him outside through the laundry door. That worked well for quite a while but now he has started not wanting to let us in the laundry to be able to let him out. It’s not that he is guarding the laundry, it’s that he gets so worked out knowing what is coming. Also once we get in the laundry and let him outside he would always just go straight to the food but now he runs outside then runs back inside to bite us... Once he has eaten his food he snaps out of this state and goes back to his regular self..

    Thanks for sharing and thank your beautiful dog model for helping too haha! At first I thought this would be a good idea but my husband and I talked it out and went through ideas and we think it will be an added stress to the system but putting a pan (or whatever object) into the area and then having to take it away. Thank you so much for sharing though, I appreciate the help!

    Maybe a mix of a funnel / tube to drop the food down onto a tray that can be pulled away once he’s done.. It is really hard. He’s tried multiple medications but nothing has really worked. We’ve just started another.. we’ll see how this one goes.

    We a do dry and wet food mix. It currently just gets put outside on the ground and he eats it with no bowl but we have to change up our system because it’s not working anymore.. This is a good idea.. I was thinking of making something like that I just need someone to help me as I’m not very handy! Thanks for the comment.

    Thanks for your comment. We don’t bring food out until he is already locked up but unfortunately that doesn’t help his issues. We also can’t use bowls so that system won’t work for us. I’m thinking even a funnel type system so the food can just be dropped down to him may work..

    We would have used a timed feeder a longggg time ago but unfortunately he will just guard it, just like regular bowls. And we haven’t used a bowl in a long time. Thanks for the suggestion though

    Amazing! Thank you! This would be perfect... a great start. Thank you for sharing!
  12. Hi all, I’ve posted in the past about my dog with OCD and anxiety who becomes extremely good aggressive. I don’t want to have a discussion about him and his issues today but I’m looking for help with ideas. We have had a set routine which has worked well up until a few weeks ago. It’s at the point where we need to figure out a more secure and safe routine for ourselves and our dog. His vet specialist suggested a crate to somehow be customised to work with him and us but I’m a bit stumped on ideas at the moment. We basically need to make him go into an area, be able to then put food safely without him getting to us, then once he’s finished be able to let him out. I found online these spinning bowls, they basically can be pushed inside the crate and then spun back out again. We were thinking of making a crate and adding that but I feel we made need a divider to there is two seperate sections for him to be in just incase.. I don’t know if what I’m saying is making much sense but I’m just looking for ideas and thoughts that may help get my creative juices flowing! Even if anyone knows of a crate that has two seperate sections with a divider down the middle that can be removed from outside the crate.. that may be a start. Anyway.. I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

    Feel free to have a read of the link above Sheena but I’m not really here to chat about my other dog as it’s a very emotional subject for me. I have got some suggestions and I will take them on board to help with the chewing.

    Thank you. I was hesitant to even post today but thought I may get some answers. Apart from the chewing issues, everything else has been good. I’m happy to report the boys get on amazing! They are currently on the floor having a nap together.
