I don't know how, if I even can, stop Angel from shaking when I get his food ready. He looks like he's on a vibrating platform! I guess it doesn't do him any harm - but he gets super excited! I put his food down and have him wait til I give the okay. He just looks up at me anxiously, waiting for the okay!! Then he eats so fast like its going to go away! His dish is about 3 feet from Susie's, our golden, but if he makes a move toward her dish, she will just step away and let him have it. So I have to monitor eating time and have him stay put until she finishes her food. I guess I just hate to see him shake so! If I feed him one piece of food at a time he just swallows each piece. I've tried standing in front of his food. He still shakes! I think I read somewhere that you should wait until their attention turns away from an object to let them have it, but he is so focused!
Should I just not worry about how anxious/excited he gets? Or should I try to get hin to calm down around food?
I don't know if you can see his anticipation, but he is like on the edge of his seat!!
I don't know what I can try to calm him down. He is like this with absolutely any type of food. Whether it be carrots, green beans, cheese - oh forget cheese- I had to get down from upstairs this morning and asked if he would like some cheese! Next thing I saw, in a flash, was him racing down the stairs, sitting in front of me for cheese!
Any suggestions are appreciated.
