Dog Waits for Permission To Eat [VIDEO]

How do you know dogs and cats are very different?  I don’t think there’s any way to can train a cat to wait for the command to eat after putting a dish of food in front of him.

there's not freaking animal cruelty here. some of you really need to lighten the heck up. if she hadn't let him eat then you could cry animal cruelty. dang, people cry animal cruelty at the drop of a hat now just like a certain race cries raceism when things dont go their way.

We've had three labradors (all obsessed with food) who've done the same, but we didn't make a point of having them wait for a minute for the sake of a video. Get a grip.

Oh this is so cruel to tease the dog like this! The poor thing was dribbling into it's bowl. It's not natural to make the animal wait so long and it WAS a long time! The food was practicaly gone in 10 seconds. All for the sake of the camera...

I agree that it is good to your dog to wait for a signal to eat (although not for an unreasonable length of time). It strengthens your role as the alpha dog and is important for preventing your beloved pet from eating potentially harmful things while out on walks.

My uncle trains dogs to assist with his security work and teaches all his dogs to only eat what he himself has given to them. This is to help prevent deliberate poisoning. If I were to feed his dogs they would not touch it. While I think this would be extremely overboard for a family pet (what would happen to the dog if something were to happen to that person so that he were unable to feed them?), I can see why it is important for his dogs' safety.

As for the dog eating very quickly, that is a normal behaviour in healthy dogs, have you ever seen a wild dog eat? Dogs are not required to chew their food as we do.
