I feed all four of mine at the same time, but Duke doesn't eat until the others are all finished, then eats as they look on. Is that a sign that he thinks he's lowest in pack order, or is he teasing them? In the past, I have had other dogs who did this also.

Hmmmm... I think just a quirk?
I feed all 6 of mine at the same time and nobody postpones digging in.
Rawhides or nylabones is a different matter, though. Meg will ALWAYS hang on to hers until she is certain everybody else is finished with theirs. Then she begins gnawing.

It's the taunt of it: "See? I still have mine and you have none."

I think it really depends on the dog... Abbey is a stinker and if there is another dog around at dinner time, she'll wait until that dog is done... carefully watching them, and then eat ever so slowly while the other dog drools. Such a little stinker!!!
