My hands are starting to suffer some serious damage. Gunnar is now 12 weeks of age and is being fed a RAW diet. Because of the fact that he swallows his RAW meal whole I have had to hold the chicken quarters in my hand to ensure that he eats a little at a time. Needless to say he is very enthusiastic about eating and even though it is in my hand he attempts to wolf it down but my hand is getting in his way! This problem also occurs when I give him a treat, like a dog biscuit. Before he eats he needs to sit, wait, and then I hold the treat cupped in my hand and tell him to take it nice...he is having a really hard time with the take it nice command. Should I just not give him the treat/food if he bites my hand in the process? I was under the impression that dogs can distinguish your hand from the food, is this not true or does he just not care? Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated!
