3 month old boxer and a 50 days old Rajapalayam, they never share their food, please help?

Hi everyone. I have a 3 month old boxer and i bought a 50 days old Rajapalayam puppy very recently. Both are males. They keep playing all the time. But they never share their food. Whenever one get near another puppy's bowl they give that warning growl. They are together only for a couple of weeks. But my neighbour's 1 yrs old Lab has let my boxer to share the food from the same bowl. Is this normal with puppies. Will they start sharing once they grow up?

Dogs should always be fed from different bowls and place them apart and not together.

well dont even expect them to eat from same bowl depends on breeds their sex and rajapalyam are hunting dogs. best feed them separately alpha dog gets first then the 2nd one eats. and dont continue feeding them in same bowl that will be just asking for problems

Hi Dinkar, could you please guide me as regards what food is best for dogs? I have labrador female 14 months old. One of them does not eat most of the times. Doctors say no problem with her health and may be she is not adapting to the diet we give her, i.e. veg diet + boiled eggs

I personally prefer packaged food as it is very convenient to feed and has all the nutrients in the right proportion. For Labs, I think there is a tailor made food by Royal Canin. Royal Canin as per me is the best and the Eukanoba. You will need to see how much you want to spend and then accordingly choose one of the above or others which may be a bit cheaper. A new food called Natural is also out which is good. Most dog food will have a guide as to how much to feed your dog based on its age, breed etc.

I hope u do not feed ur dog in between snacks etc. If it does not finish its food within half an hour remove it. By giving just one type of food the dog will not become a picky eater and will eat its food when given, if it sees that u will remove it after a while.

Loss of appetite can also be due to worms and I prefer deworming my dogs every 3 months.

All The best !! Hope I was of help.

I do not agree with separate feeding alpha dog idea, that will just raise the tension line between the two dogs. Its you who has to built the alpha position else when they will reach maturity they will keep challenging each other. Both the breed are dominant type. You feed them same time and before giving them food put them in down and stay position. Let them have food in their separate bowl. And if anyone of them tries to come to other dog food just push him away. Like mother dog do to their puppies to make them realize that they all are at the same rank and she is the boss. Be confident and feel like a leader. You dog will be fine in no time. They are young so shape them well

Oh really!!! As far I know the alpha position is the rank and rest all are pack. And there is always fight for rank. And if you don't take the alpha position then both the dog will fight because they think one should be alpha. And let me tell you there are very few dog who wants to become an alpha. Rank is the order not the nature. Nature of dog is to be in a pack. Don't try to create a half information. If you want to live happily with two dominant dog first you have take the alpha position. And dog should be ranked lowest. If tgr owner do not take the alpha position the dogs will always fight. Trust me You don't want run a second pack order.

lol Who's creating half information read and understand an first lol im telling FEED THE FIRST dominant dog im talking about the 2 dogs of course he is the pack leader who is no2? the boxer or the other thats what im saying dont feed both same time is the worst thing to do. feed one and let the other one watch the feed the next one and keep away the other one. and take suggestion from a guy who has a lot of experience man no 2 dogs will share same rank there has to be a no2 and no3

Dude they both are puppy one is 3 month and one is 50 day. Right now the alpha position is important. And yes I agree with the lower rank but establishing lower rank will be done in no time. The food is not the only factor. And let me tell you a dog get aggressive or dominant coz they find their leader incapable of the position. Even if you establish lower rank the fight will continue cos they know fight is between two of them and once they mature they will fight again for alpha position. Its is like 2 employees and CEO. How good employees are doesn't matter they have to work at the same level ignoring all the conflict coz CEO is above them and they can't be CEO. Establishing alpha position among dogs is the first way to control all behavior problem. And that alpha always should be you. Don't take this to 2nd level. Very few people can nurture an alpha dog. This is the reason why most dog end up on leash or two dog are not ready to share the same things. Now it is food later it will be space and area they live.

You don't want their conflict you want them to work and listen to you and in reward they get food and affection. It is your duty to share the food amount. Look at street there is always one alpha male and all other dogs are pack and they eat food but its alpha who touches the food first and then other joins them. I see everyday people have to give up their dog coz of conflicts and dog owner do not know what is wrong. I can write whole page. I am not here to fight on ideas I am just telling first owner should establish the alpha position and start controlling bad behaviour.
