    Default picky eater

    So this guy will not touch his food unless there is yogurt mixed in. He's also starting to not eat if he doesn't like a particular food, which is unfortunate as I like to rotate different proteins when he's done with a bag. Here's to trying fish this time. Anyone else deal with picky eaters?

    @Sophatp...Chubby is a picky eater as well and due to skin allergies he can only eat one kind of food...I used to feel really bad if he didn't gobble up his food right away but my wise 13yr old told me " Mommy he will eat when he is hungry" so I left the food out and the little brat was waiting to get something else or a treat. Sure enough a little while later he ate his food...so don't worry if he doesn't eat it right away he will not starve...hope this helps

    I would stick to something you know he likes instead of always switching. The constant switching could be upsetting his belly, and this could be the reason why he's hesitate to eat. If you find he likes one particular flavor stick with that.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Agree with @TyTysmom
    I switched charlottes protein last month and she hesitated eating it. Seems to be happy with the same ole' same ole' so that's what we are going to do.

    An old vet I had years ago always said,"as long as they are not sick,and they are healthy-when they get hungry enough,they will eat"
    "
    “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"
