How do you feed one pet with special needs at the same time as everyone else ?

Penny can't always eat everything Maggie & Daisy can. I can't leave their dishes a minute because Penny always wants to check out what the girls have.

Aren't there electronic pet dishes that open/close based on a sensor in the pet's collar? If a certain pet doesn't have access to a certain food/bowl, the bowl will stay closed. This doesn't sound like a foolproof method if the dogs are already in close proximity, but you could try getting a dish for Penny and feeding her in a different room until the other dogs are done eating--and their bowls are closed. If you don't want to invest in the bowls (which may be on the expensive side), you could just feed Penny in a separate room; it is for her own good.

This may not work for you, but I also feed my two German Shepherds far apart from one another. One eats by the oven at the far end of the kitchen. The other eats by the table on the other side of the island, which is at least 10 feet away from the other dog. They both have been trained to leave each other's feeding areas ALONE.
