I have two sweet dogs one is a dachshund named Gypsy. Recently Gypsy has started hiding her food. I have been finding about a half a cup of her dog food in the strangest places. I know dogs hide bones but l don't understand why she is doing this. It seems she is doing this when she has the house to herself. Has anyone experienced this behaviour or have an idea why she might be doing this?
