Did u leave the food for him to eat with all the time he wants?
Try this, no free feeding for him, always feed him at a particular time, leave the food for him to finish in say 10 mins, after that time's up, regardless of if he has finish eating or not, take the food away, repeat it at the next meal time, he will get the message.
I think he is trying to train u to give him the best deal:) my dog tried this with me, the first time i took his food away, he dun really bother, thinking i'll give him something later, the 2nd time he was a bit hesitant, the 3rd time when he see me feeding him, he quickly finish everything and leave only a clean bowl:)
So u wanna train him or be trained by him?
Just my 2 cents worth...
Maybe we should better discuss this under behaviour..
