Barking at meal time

Hi all,

I'm a little at my wit's end as to how to train them out of this. When it was just Buckley, he would do his happy dance, but feeding time was a quiet affair. Now, with two of them, it's an all-out barkfest. This wouldn't be such a big deal, but I get up an hour earlier than DH and feed the dogs right away. Thus, the barking wakes him up. Jewelie is the main problem. Clearly this is a behaviour that was tolerated at her old house for her whole life.

I have tried nose hugs, firm NO, going back into the basement (we keep the food on the landing) and closing the door until they are quiet...nothing seems to work. I know it's because we are feeding them at the same time, but given the size of our house, I'm not sure how I would go about feeding them separately.

Any ideas???

Hee..hee..hee.. How I can imagine :hi:

No advice to offer here though as I'm far worse than you are. Boeing not only does his happy dance but also barks away at the top of his voice. Whatever strength he has, he puts it in his barking until the food bowl is placed in front of him. Luckily, there are just me and mom in the house and we wake at the same time, I to get ready to go to work and mom to feed the beagle. She has to be real quick to keep his barking at a minimum.
