Keeping the Baby out of Your Dog’s Food and Water Bowl

Babies are curious, and they don’t necessarily understand the meaning of ‘no’ either. That means they get into all kinds of things they shouldn’t, like the dog’s food and water bowl.

To keep your kid out of the dog’s food bowl, you should only put it on the floor when it’s time for your dog to eat. Once he has had his fill, you should pick the bowl up off the floor. Your dog shouldn’t graze anyway, but it has the added benefit of keeping your kiddo from eating dog food.

You have to get a bit trickier when it comes to water because your dog should have access to it at all times. Try placing it in an area of the home where your child doesn’t have access, like on the other side of the baby gate. You can also try placing it on a table.
