We got our black lab pup at 7 weeks old, and he has been crazy excited about food since we got him. He is now 12 weeks old. He would scarf it down then would get the hiccups so we got him a puzzle feeder and that has helped tremendously on slowing down his eating. HOWEVER, when it comes time to feed, he gets so excited about getting his food (runs in front of me, jumps on me, whimpers & whines, barks etc). Since we got him, we make him sit and stay after we put the food bowl down to try to teach him some manners, but he still is just going crazy and doesn't really listen to the commands because his full attention is on the food bowl. We thought he would start to outgrow this behavior as the breeder fed his whole litter from one bowl, but now he has his own bowl and the other 2 dogs don't bother him at all during feeding. He is not food aggressive; just a crazy food lover! Any advice on how to teach him not to be so food crazy?
