Does your dog tell you when it's dinner time?
I think sometimes my little Jack Russell is quite different from other dogs. She certainly is different from the dogs I've owned before.

She tries to manipulate me before I feed her dinner. She lays in front of me to get my attention. Then, she starts to shake from head to toe. There is nothing medically wrong with her. She is not cold either. She only does this before dinner time. She is trying to make me feel sorry for her because she hasn't eaten since her last treat! Poor Misha! LOL

Does your dog try to manipulate you into feeding him/her? Does anyone else's dog shake like Misha does to get attention?

It does seem as if dogs do know when their dinner time is and they will tell you. Its funny because you wonder how can they know what time it is? But maybe its just part of their instincts, so yes my dogs do try to get attention they don't shake but they will jump up on you as way to tell you its dinner time.

I have a Jack Russell mix, too, and he's not nearly as subtle or manipulative as yours. He goes right in for it. He'll just start whining. He'll sit near you or follow you around the house, whining and crying until finally you tell him that you'll get him some food. Then he jumps up and is full of energy again. He'll even start barking or jumping in the air sometimes, lol.

RE: Does your dog tell you when it's dinner time?
My Lab always knew when it was dinner time. At five minutes to 5, she stopped whatever she was doing and gave me the stare down. If I didn't respond, she was more persistent by hitting me with her paw or barking once to get my attention.

Jessi, Have you known a more verbal dog than the Jack Russell? Misha talks all the time. I have never had a dog that had so much to say. It isn't just barking. She will sit in front of you and give out all sorts of yeowls, whines, barks, and other noise. It sounds like yours has the same qualities. They sure seem to be happy to be fed.

Misha also does the "air" jumps. As I am getting the food, she sits and then she jumps straight up in the air. I'm not sure if it's because she is excited or she thinks I've forgotten her. LOL I've turned it into a trick. If I say "Jump for Joy", she will jump up about 4 feet in the air.

Yes! When my Shih Tzu was around, she would go up to me and stare at me. By doing this, I would ask her the word "food?" and she would cock her head and walk to the kitchen and then it would signify that it is indeed time for food!

RE: Does your dog tell you when it's dinner time?
Yes! Even though we don't table feed, if they see us eating then they know they will be soon. We eat first and then give our dogs food after. Does anyone else do this? I heard you're supposed to feed your dogs first. That way they won't bother you while you're eating. However, they already know they aren't getting any of ours.

RE: Does your dog tell you when it's dinner time?
It depends on the dog. With Candy, dinner time is no big deal. She is not a great eater. Just a fussy eater. She can go through the whole day with just one meal. For Black Lady, eating time is very important. That's because she eats a lot and, apparently has very short intestines. So her food passes through her body very quickly. When it's time for food, she would just stand patiently at her food dish.

Our dog Zoe does. She is very sweet about it though. She comes and stares and tries really hard to get your attention. As soon as she knows that you know what she wants she gets so excited, runs to the door and tries to get down the stairs as fast as she can!!

Yes, my dog will tell me when it's time for his dinner. He just comes up and stares right at me, like he's staring into my soul or something. It's actually a little uncomfortable, how strong he stares at you. It's cute, but it's kind of creepy, like he's trying to talk to you with his mind or something. He reminds me of those little girls in the shining, haha.

RE: Does your dog tell you when it's dinner time?
I think I have the strangest dog I ever met. He never lets us know he's hungry. The dog I had growing up would always knock around her food dish and whine until someone fed her. He doesn't even go running to the bowl when we are filling it. He generally just eats kind of strange for a dog. He will take a few pieces from his dish in the kitchen and eat them in the living room. He does that all day long. I guess he's a snacker. lol

RE: Does your dog tell you when it's dinner time?
Bobbi, if I am sitting, always jumps up in my lap, if not already there & becomes very animated; wagging her tail, propping up her ears, tilting her head to either side! And even when I moved the clocks one hour from Daylight Saving Time, she still knows as of course, it's their internal clock!

All I need say is "Bobbi's bowl" & she jumps down & acts as if it were first meal for days ! Then once her dinner is fixed & I am about to serve her, I say Code 7, as that's a law enforcement code for meal time, & she becomes a pogo stick!!

RE: Does your dog tell you when it's dinner time?
What a precious dog you have! I wish my dog will do that before dinner time or when ever she is hungry--I think it'll be easier. I try to feed her when ever I think she's hungry which is not good because I never know when she's hungry. I hate to leave food out for her because I don't want the house to smell. When ever my dog shakes or wags her tell tail for attention she wants her belly rubbed. She'll also do it when she wants to play; she'll put one of her toys in my hand--isn't that the cutest?!
