Picky Pooch?

Post by Tylersmamma on Tue Aug 28 2012, 23:58

Tyler seems to be very picky with his food!

Turns his nose up at dry food on its own! I have to mix it with something, usually gravy!
Hes not very keen on veg either, which I find a bit weird lol, but obviously its just not to his taste. He just seems to be very hit and miss when it comes to his food. I have tried different brands of food thinking it could be that, but as I say, he seems very picky.
I gave him Pasta mixed with pilchards,which he wolfed down. I was reading it was good for the skin etc, so Ive made that a once a fortnight kinda thing.
I do know he gets hungry, because he kinda hangs around us at meal times, ears up and watching us like a hawk lol. But just doesn't wanna eat his own food. As I say, Hes only been with us about three weeks now, and its all trial and error at the moment, but any advice would be appreciated Smile

put it down for 10 mins , then pick it up , put it back an hour later. Keep lt like this and he will soon learn. Don't give him anything else , a healthy dog will not starve itself Smile

Dave

Funny, because when we came in from a walk the other day, I kept kinda coaxing him toward the bowl and since he follows me everywhere, he obviously came toward the bowl.
After a few sniffs, he finally gave in and ate!

I'll have a crack at your suggestion Smile Thanks

Agree with Dave too. If he doesn't learn the drill in a couple of days it will require more investigation, but I doubt he will starve himself. Avoid any treats, table scraps etc. Like a fussy child. I don't give them my table scraps either Wink you know what I mean! A good quality, healthy dry food should be enough to temp him. Just check out his teeth and gums to make sure that's not an issue Smile
Let us know how you go Smile

I have recently changed Rockys food to Barking Heads from JWB. All I do is cooked of some chicken and add a little, once cooled, to his kibble. I also put some water in the tray when cooking the chicken to make a little stock for him too. Once this has been the refridgerator a while it will set and seperate. I then just take the fat of the jelly and add a little of the jelly to his dinner too. Rocky loves it.
