Many puppies and dogs go crazy after eating and dog owners often wonder what's going on with their canine friends. It's not like they are eating sugar-loaded candy as it happens with toddlers getting a sugar high, so what gives? Interestingly, there are several possible explanations for this behavior.
Dogs eat cat food for a simple reason: dogs find cat food to be an appealing delicacy that is difficult to resist. If Rover is stealing Miss Kitty's food though, you may want to take some steps to discourage this behavior. While it's still nutrition, dogs are built differently than cats and therefore have different nutritional requirements. Not to mention, it's not nice for your dog to deprive your cat from needed nourishment, and secondly, consider the fact that cat food can cause problems to your dog, especially when consumed frequently or in abundance.
If your dog refuses to walk on leash, you may be thinking your dog is being stubborn like a mule, but most likely, there are other dynamics at play. These dogs certainly deserve being given the benefit of doubt before labeling them as hard-headed or lazy. It's therefore important to play close attention to when this behavior occurs so to obtain some helpful pointers which provide valuable help in the resolution process of the problem.
Dogs eat so fast because their minds and bodies were crafted to survive in a feast or famine fashion. To better understand this behavior it takes gaining a closer look into the roots of the behavior which dates back to when a dog's ancestors lived in groups and hunted for their own meat.
