How can kenneling my dog improve my snacking habits?

Dawn Marcus
Neurology
If you religiously kennel your dog every time you get out even the smallest snack, you'll soon find you're snacking less often. Kenneling the dog before you eat makes you take a few minutes break to determine if you really need a dish of ice cream or a handful of cookies an hour before dinner. If you're a frequent snacker, this will become obvious when you're regularly asking your dog to go to his kennel so you can nibble something. Kenneling your dog with every snack can help make you more aware of your own bad eating behavior.
