Rubbing his nose before eating? Bizarre!
My almost-3-year-old "pup", Beamer, has his share of quirks. He goes in phases with his food, where at times he'll gobble it down and even wait to be fed, others it seems he has no interest in eating.
During the times it seems he has no interest, he does this weird thing after we pour the food into the bowl!
He rubs his nose on the carpet under the bowls repeatedly, walks around the bowl, as much as he can, nudges it sometimes, and sometimes he'll even "push" water from the water bowl into the food bowl with his snout!
We've been feeding him Taste of the Wild Buffalo, and likes it sometimes, seems like he doesn't others. After doing the water thing a couple of times, we started wetting it with water or chicken broth, but he still does the water thing so it's not to make it softer. We even tried giving him wet food in case he didn't like the hard, but nothing seems to make a difference in his behavior.
He still LOVES treats, so we're thinking maybe it's the food... but we switched it from Taste of the Wild salmon, so I have no idea what his issue is!
