|I take my time eating, and sometimes I leave everything in my bowl until I've had a good walk. Then I come home and eat. Or if Patan is close by, I will eat my food. Maybe you can eat in your kennel with Marlowe or Chey nearby.
I spit treats out too if I feel they are too big to chew. They aren't too big, of course, because if someone in the park gives me an even bigger treat, I gobble it down. I like Mom to break my treats into little pieces for me. This one is definitely a behavioral thing since we know I eat the same or larger treats from other people with no problem.
Maybe from all of your show training, you are kind of used to being hand fed your bites of food and think that is the way dogs are supposed to eat. I bet if you go a few meals without, you'll be hungry and eat out of your bowl again.
