Ceili is six and since I've switched her to kibble I find she coughs and chokes as well. She's not barking, I think it's a matter of inhaling her food - she gets too much in her mouth at one time too fast. When I feed her by the handful she's fine. Personally, I don't think it is EVER safe - especially with a puppy - to feed them - or give them bones etc. - unsupervised.Your puppy will settle down in time of course (give it five, ten years ) but have looked at your pre-breakfast/lunch/dinner routine? If you aren't already - having "quiet time" before and after food - is best and safest. Another thought - is the size of the kibble suitable to Suzie's size?
