Re: Won't eat...have I created a monster?
It sounds like Riggs has a little OCD. No... I'm only kidding! I can really relate, though. My boy Willie waits for a command before he will begin eating. I have no idea what the secret command is. In fact, a while ago I posted about it. I tried all the suggestions I got, but nothing has worked.
I got Willie out of the dog pound, and so I thought maybe his first owner taught him to wait for a certain command. That door is locked, though, and I've never found the key. What I do now is put his food down, tell him dinner is ready, walk away and ignore him. Eventually, he goes over to it and starts eating. Good luck with Riggs!
