Does your BC eat laying down?

Recommended Posts

I have Two Border Collies and they eat laying down. ALot of people see this and think it is so funny. I have heard from other people who say their Border Collies eat laying down too. I was wondering if anybody elses did.

Hi Ivy. Siena stands to eat, but when we've worked hard, she'll lay down to slurp up her water. She'll just lay there with her head in the water bowl. It's so funny looking. I guess they want to be comfortable, huh!

That's the only way my BC will eat. She has to get comfortable before she will dig in. My BC is the only dog out of all the dogs I've had (about 12 breeds) that eat laying down. I think it's cute. She will lay there with one leg on each side of the bowl so when she moves the bowl too far away with her head she will pull it right back with her legs. I'll have to get a pic of that.

My BC does both, standing and laying, i have noticed with my 3 that they prefer to lay down when they got bigger, my two 3 month olds stand more but i think its so they can reach, my 6 month old lays. I laugh at him, but that is what makes us love him more. He is soooooo different.

Both of my Border Collies lay down and eat it is so funny. And the puppy with sleep with her head in the food bowl. I think It might have something to do with the BC structure that is is uncomfortable to stand and have their necks bent down like that

Gus will do the same thing Siena does with the water bowl. Must be a family trait!!!

May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am,

One of my Border Collies does this! I have always wondered why.

It is funny.
