Looks funny, but it’s actually meant to help dogs with a condition called megaesophagus. They can’t swallow food properly in a head down position (or something like that).

It is sweet though, that the dog is so perfectly trained that he puts the tray table down himself :slight_smile:

Then I change the title… and on the FB video, you’re right the dog pushes the tray table. Then I was totally wrong.

It’s still funny how ready the dog was to pull down the traytable. Some breeds are very helpful when it comes to feeding times! :rofl:

Thank you for sharing @Candide and for your helpful comment @Harris2

For anyone interested in knowing more about this condition here’s some additional information as we may just find ourselves asked to care for a dog with the condition, which is very manageable.

  • Bailey Chairs are used to keep the dog in an upright position for at least 10 minutes, preferably 20-30 minutes, preventing most of the food and liquid from accumulating in the esophagus. These chairs look like highchairs for dogs and can be custom-built for growing puppies and all sizes of adult dogs.

Do you think that special chair is sold or the owner made it on purpose ?
I have never seen that in pets shops

They’re called Bailey chairs and are sold online. But if someone is handy, they could probably build their own as well.

I use the Ruffwear chain reaction dog collar and it’s very useful for a dog owner.
