Baxter has never been bothered with me and food before this morning.. im really shocked at why and how this has happened and escalated so quickly..
positive & negative results at tonights feed..
I seperated them both first but they were scratching & barking to get to each other so tried seperate ends of the room.. still no joy, when Thor had finished eating i allowed him into the room with baxter (under my supervision) and put poppy in the kitchen on her own, she wouldnt eat but Baxter did.. Baxter behaved perfectly, allowed me to hand feed & remove food from his bowl & put in not a murmur... Poppy on the other hand would not go near her bowl.. i seperated them and she wouldnt eat, i put them back together & she wouldnt eat.. i ended up with her bowl between my feet hand feeding her all of her tea! and not allowing Baxter to go near it.. which he did take notice of so whilst im pleased that Baxter will learn and this is positive... obviously a long way to go and he wont be getting high reward treats or food whilst with any of the others on his own.
im worried at the effects this has had on poppy, she even wet herself when i went to pick her up and move her away from Baxter
Sarah, Thor, Freya, Poppy & Baxter
