I have a dog that allows me in her bowl. I can walk up behind her. I can touch her and pet her. I can take her food away. Meanwhile she's like "so uh, what's up". She doesn't care. Did I toss her cookies and click and then toss her hot dog? No I just started from day one of owning her that the dog food is mine and that it's my right to do whatever I want with it. It doesn't take a lot of training to get it done. This family didn't do it and the dog turned out to be a POS. It may have been altered at puppyhood but the dog bit and so in my eyes is worthless.
