I’ve talked about the pros and cons of moving back home and another huge plus for moving back home was that Laney, the dog-child, gets a yard to play in. That, and the fact that I don’t have to walk her in the morning, I just let her outside to do her thing without having to hover over her. Which is heavenly, by the way.

Currently, Josh and I split custody (which sounds more awful than it is–but I’m not sure how else to say it!) until we can move in together. Some days she’s with me and others, she’s at the Ryan farm.
When she’s with me and my family, Laney has a VERY hard time sharing food. Josh and I have kind of maybe spoiled her just a little. She will eat all of her food, all of our other dog’s food, the cat food, and then beg for human food.
The ONLY thing I’ve found that keeps her from doing this at meal time is feeding her canned dog food.  Because she’s that much of a diva that dry food just doesn’t do it for her. 
This month we she got to try the Whole Earth Farms Canned Dog Food in the Beef Stew flavor from Chewy.com . Laney went nuts for it. It must be the gravy! Sidenote: I will never get over the fact that canned dog food smells like some people food! Like it really smelled like beef stew.
I like it because I know it’s good for her (grain free, no preservatives, and no corn, wheat, or soy) AND it keeps her on her side of the room (or at least focused on her own bowl)! I know she enjoyed it because she licked the bowl clean and her beard was sticky afterwards #dogchild

Have any tips for feeding multiple animals? Let me know in the comments!

  • My parents have two dogs and it took a good couple of months after we got Chloe for Cooper to stay in his food and not try and eat hers. It was a pretty smooth transition, but if we aren't watching them or we try and break their food routine it can get hairy. Our dogs are kind of spoiled as well 🙂

  • Hahaha, luckily both our dogs scarf down their food as soon as it hits the bowl. We keep the cats' food upstairs behind a baby gate, or the dogs will totally eat all of it. When we first brought Lucy to this house, I had to train her to eat her food at once, or Tinkerbell would eat it!
