Davis our youngest of the two cavaliers that we have does not like to eat out of a bowl.
He likes to be fed by hand and after a few bites he will eat the food off the floor but rarely out of a bowl.
He simply was not eating much and thus starting eating his dung, which is disgusting.
When we feed him by hand and sit with him while he finishes the food off the floor, he gets than will not eat his dung. At least not that much.
Not sure how we break him of this eating disorder.
Could it be that since the older cavalier is the dominant dog, Davis is than just too shy to step in and eat.
The play great together and sleep next to each other , so there is no obvious aggression or dislike.
Just seems odd that he won't eat like other dogs. We have tried different bowls, etc but always back to the hand. Must be a security issue,,,maybe?
