Q. I have 2 puppies, both only wants to eat from the other ones bowl. I tried feeding them in the crate, but they lose their appetite. What should I do?

Answered By

A. I would recommend feeding them only in their crates. They may lose interest initially but will learn their feeding schedule. Try to leave them with their food for a limited amount of time on as regular of schedule as you can with puppies. If they skip a meal, they will be okay as eat several times per day. Try not to give in :) they get us trained quickly!!
