Rodeo eats really fast too! We put warm water in his food! It seems to slow him down, to 2 minuets instead of 30 seconds. Plus I think it fills him up more. We only feed him once a day in the morning.

Cocoa, my choc lab, is not a big eater, and is also a picky eater, so I never had a problem with her. But with Sophie --- let's just say I never have to vacuum crumbs off the floor, or the furniture, or myself.

Lola is a typical lab and will eat whatever she can find. We feed our dogs twice a day and watch what they eat. If we didn't, Lola would end up eating Abbey's food to. They eat on opposite sides of the kitchen too. With Lola, time isn't an issue. If you have a minute, that's more than enough time for her to eat. She inhales it.

Oh poor Sophie! Green beans again!!!! She might not like that or the low calorie food!!!! I'm glad her thyroid is okay though. Are they sure it can't be any other problem??? Guess she is like her Godmother and loves to eat!!!!!

The vet checked her thyroid, but Sophie isn't hypothyroid; she just likes to eat! The vet said she was licking the floor and cabinets trying to find food while she was there. Sophie is going back on green beans and will be fed separately!

Oh dear and we know that Sophie is eating more than her share. Can you put Sophie somewhere by herself while you are getting ready for work and let her eat some then take up all the food and put it down when you get home? Could they all wait until evening when you are home?
I'm sure they wouldn't like that waiting though!
Sure hope some others have some good suggestions for you.

How did her vet appt. go???

Each morning I fill 3 dog food bowls with dry food (Blue Buffalo) and put them down for the dogs. By evening, the bowls are empty. Evidently, Sophie (yellow lab) is eating more than her share because she is definitely one of those "I'll eat everything I can" labs. Can anyone give me advice on how to feed multiple dogs, and limit the input of one of the dogs? Keep in mind, that I work so I really don't have time to supervise who's eating what in the morning.
