Patches Private Space:
Off Limits to Tanner and Oliver
I have had cats all of my life. We now have 2 dogs and 5 cats! They are learning to coexisit, sort of. What's the trick to stopping the dogs from eating the cat food and vice versa? We try to separate them but thay always find a way! Any ideas?
Also, only feed them twice a day. Don't leave food out. They will learn to eat their food all at one time and then the dishes will remain empty throughout the day.
Taking ownership of the food will help allow you to be in charge, rather than the pets taking over every dish.
Teach your dogs to give your cat's food and litter area space. Practice frequently and soon they'll get the idea, when paired with reward and plenty of praise.
