Dog Walks around While Chewing Food
by Justin weber
My Jack Russell Terrier will pick up food from her bowl and walk around find a spot sit down and chew and swallow then goes back for more sometimes she stays at her bowl to eat.
Is this normal? She is about to be two.Suggestion from our Vet
Yes, some dogs will do this. I suspect it’s because they are more comfortable where they have chosen to eat (e.g., on the carpet, away from another dog, etc.). It is nothing to worry about as long as her weight is good and she is otherwise healthy.
