  • Keep them separated during meal time. Our pup is crated during meals, especially when our son is eating. It keeps him from feeding the dog and keeps her from jumping on him trying to get his food.

  • You have to put the animals away during meals. I go through this too. I put the dog outisde and the cat in the laundry room.

  • I am a FIRM believer in allowing for natural consequences when possible. If he feeds the dogs his food, then his food is all gone...there is no more. After a couple of meals of not eating, he'll stop or at least eat first, feed the dogs second. =) (at which time you remove his tray).
