How to get dog to Chew
Since I have been raw feeding my dog, I have had to cut up their food since they are gulpers. I want to get them to start chewing while they are still, so I dont have to always be cutting up their food.
Yesterday I feed them their chicken cut up, but saved a big chuck to try to feed to my oldest who is 8mo. I held it in my hand and tried to hold it to make him bit off a piece. He ended up bitting my fingers. After he got a few large peice bitten off without and fingers, he went for another and pull a peice to large for him and it slipped right out of my hand, and he started choking. So im freaking out, but he was able to get it up.
I feed raw now because it is the best for them, but also for the stimulation of chewing. Although we are not chewing yet.
Tomorrow is suppose to be a bone day, and I have a small cornish hen that i cut up into so small size pieces, but im scared he might try to swallow the whole thing.
Are there any techniques to get my dog to start chewing.
Also I am still in need of a good formula on how much to be feeding my dogs. I feeding 4 oz a day to both my 8mo and 3mo old.
