If you feed your dog right before you leave for the day, you might be upset if you find that your dog hasn’t eaten the food by the time you return. Unfortunately, this is more common than you might think. However, the question remains: why?
Dog behavioral experts have determined that stress is the main cause of dogs not eating, and it’s possible that your dog is stressed when you’re away. One simple fix could be making eating more interesting. For instance, you could try placing the food in a maze bowl or a slow feeding toy to make feeding fun which could distract your dog from their stress. You could also look into some supplements that lessen your dog’s stress but be sure to consult your vet.
If none of that works, you might need the help of a dog behavioral expert to train your dog to deal with these stressful situations. In fact, there are certifications just for this expertise that your vet can talk to you about.
