Try getting her a galvanized pan from Walmart. My dogs don't like bowls either

Don't feed her for a couple days, then put her food out if she pushes it out then take it away again. She will get hungry and learn to eat when she gets fed

How would you like it if someone starved you every time you did something stupid? I'm guessing you wouldn't last long, right with many other hound hunters. What would that actually teach a dog? All the dog will learn is that its master/owner doesn't care about it enough to feed it. Sometimes I am truly amazed how long humans have lasted on this planet.

I would get a bowl with tall sides (like a popcorn bowl) and make sure the boxer can't knock it over, so screw it down to a piece of plywood, or strap it to the side of the kennel. Doesn't that sound a little more normal than starving a dog?

No, sir you are absolutely wrong. If the dog is hungry it will eat. If it is not it will play with its food and push it out of its bowl, I'm not saying starve him to death just let the dog get hungry and see what happens.
I had a beagle that would dump her water bowl as soon as I filled it, so I would fill it up and she would turn it over, after a day or two of her spilling it she learned to drink and not play with it

I doubt that very much. To correct an animal's behavior, preventing the negative behavior is quicker and simpler for both the dog and owner.

Didn't 57% of your state vote for the President in the last election? HA HA, sorry that was a low blow and you didn't deserve that.

You can talk to any vet out there. Fasting a dog is not going to harm it at all.

Fasting sure wouldn't hurt me, but you know what I would still hate it. I realize we are talking about a boxer, but I hear a lot of stuff like this on these websites and it just boggles my mind. A working dog needs good, healthy food to be able to perform to the best of their ability, they also need to be well hydrated, and they also need a clean/dry place to sleep. This isn't exactly rocket science here folks.

JCarson,

Iagree with you, I had a bluetick gyp that wouldnt eat and dump her food. I with held her food for a day and a half til i knew she was real hungry then fed her. She ate a little then started to dump the food. So i took it out and waited another day. When i fed her the next day she ate all her food and has not dumped her food since. She now eats every bite as soon as I place the bowl in there. That dog also does not think i dont care for her, ahe worships the ground i walk on. That dog will break her heart in te woods for me to tree a coon. She wont hunt with anyone else. My buddy has taken her with out me and she just sat there. I think this ol Boy commenting above might not know as much about coon hounds as he thinks he does.

Well maby he just got the wrong idea, I wouldn't starve a dog. My dogs blow the roof off the kennel when they see me coming down the drive I pet and give each one some attention every night.
