    Unhappy Hello Everyone!!!! I'm seeking out some Great advice :)

    Hello everyone! The world would be a better place if we all acted like BULLIES wouldn't. Loyal ,Funny, Loving and we all thought wrinkles were cute well...maybe not like this guy...but they do have some pretty nice personality characteristics
    I think we should all act like a bully ...at least for a minute of our day!

    Well... I need some sound advice!!!!! My bully won't eat unless I intervene somehow!!! He has been checked by multiple vets and is HEALTHY but lately, unless I feed him from my hand or make the food somehow "playful "...he will just walk by ! I have added cottage cheese and switched foods multiple times (canidae ...TOTW...Canned) he's not buying...just eating bout a 1/4 or so at night ......
    help help help!!!!

    Have you tried raw feeding. My Usko use to eat kibble only when he was really hungry. I tried to spice it up with all sorts of stuff, but no use, he just didn't like it. I switched to raw and he's still picky and regulates his eating, but loves most of the things I offer.

    Sounds to me like Mr. Sandman is training you to hand feed him or make a game out of eating! The only time one of my Bulldogs has not eaten there was a health issue, but you've had that checked out. What I would do is put his food down for 1/2 hr. in the am. Then pick it up. Put it down again in the pm for 1/2 hour. He will eat eventually and he needs to eat when you feed him.
    Welcome to EBN! We'd love to see pictures of your smart Mr. Sandman.

    No...I hadn't tried the raw feeding ...a bit hesitant since I have already weaned between two foods...I wanted to use the eggs -cottage cheese as snacks...but I dont know what to do ...he likes to play a lot and we have to calm him down when he runs around too much...he's too distracted to eat! Im afraid he burns more calories than he takes in But thank you ...I may just get desperate.......should he be rounded anyways? At this age?

    Yes....I think behind that innocent"who me? " eyes...he's working me... so its about tough love then...! Im pretty sure he's not sick especially since he does eat once our hands have something to do with it! Any particular feeding schedule you would follow with four month olds? Im afraid to stunt his growth ... if his will is as strong as I think it is.
    But I will do it...thank you

    I'm afraid I can't help with the not eating either because I would only mimic what's been suggested. But wanted to say hi, and

    @JeannieCO if I were you I wouldn't take his advice to start acting like a bully! Don't really want to see a video of you choosing to eat over ice cream
