Does your dog dance when he gets fed?

Our dog dances when he is fed. He litterally spins in circles and stands on his hind legs a couple times.

  • no... mine won't shut up. While I am fixing his food he barks his head off at me like it will make me go faster.

  • They follow us around. One of them will shove her bowl around the floor till it's in the place she wants it.

  • My dog checks out the grub that we are having first to see if she's missing out and then goes to eat her own chow. It's really funny because she likes people food on the same plate as her dog food.

  • My dog sits and waits for me to fill her bowl. I guess she's odd!

  • Haha, no, but she gets so happy she wags her tail so hard her whole butt shakes back and forth. :)
    She dances and does tricks for treats - she gets all worked up for that, lol. My husband has taught her to "dance", to play dead, and to almost roll over.
    But with food she usually just waits for me to fill her bowl and then runs and eats. I keep her bowl full all the time, though, so maybe that's why (she doesn't eat a lot, or overeat, so I don't mind leaving it out for her).

  • No dancing, but he will "talk" to us and tell us all about how he thinks he needs to eat RIGHT NOW and bug the heck out of us until we give in and feed him dinner.

  • That is exactly what our puppy does...we call it his "Dinner Dance" . We also get told off if we are taking too long with it!
