treat saving??

Post by Huskymomma on Fri Jun 10, 2011 7:35 am

When we go out we give Storm a treat in his crate.

He doesnt eat it, he saves it for when we come home and then he gets it and eats it out of his crate.

Shocked Weird eh? Anyone know why? or have a dog who does it?

If he was suffering separation anxiety I would think he would show more obvious signs of stress, he might just prefer to eat it when you are there Smile

I have retrievers so they never tend to say no. Although when left with Milo I put treats on the kitchen floor, make them wait, I sneak out the stair gate on the doorway then say go on then and Rupert wont eat, he just sits looking at me with big eyes like but Mum, can't I come? Crying or Very sad

haha I get Kita jumping up and leaning on the door looking at me through the door window, then when I walk away she runs to the leaving room, jumps up and looks out the window at me! Laughing

Haha Rupert runs and looks out the window if loose but I put them away in the kitchen normally. Again, for my crazed paranoia reasons that someone could put something through the letter box Laughing

Rupert prefers his crate anyway, its a battle to get him in the kitchen, he'd rather be on his own in a metal box than shut in with Milo what does that say lol!

I tried a crate for Kita, she went MENTAL, absolutley hated it! Neutral So she gets mostly free roam of the house with the king charles spaniel ^_^

Aww bet she likes that though. Rupert used to be shut in the kitchen/utility in the old house which was huge (he would chew cables etc mischievous thing) but in this house he howled and cried when left in the kitchen. Put him back in his crate and he's been great. Got Milo in Nov and he will be quiet in the kitchen with him but he doesn't like it.

the best replies I had on H-O were that the treats may not be good enough in his eyes to compensate for being left alone.
