    Default Eating habits

    Hello - over the last few days my big guy doesn't seem to like to eat. He will nibble but will not finish his entire bowl of food. He used to be an eating machine!!! But now not so much.

    He is acting normal - so I'm kind of perplexed! We feed him taste of the wild grain free puppy food.

    Ugh!!

    Hello - the last few days my big guy hasn't been eating- he kind of just nibbles. He used to be an eating machine! He is acting normal- playful and active. We feed him taste of the wild grain free puppy food.

    Time to put him on dog food and only feed twice a day if he is 6 months. That is when I switched Chunky to Fromm Pork/peas and beef frittata and he loves both.

    @tomclx the same thing happened with Murray, he's 9 months now and we've transitioned to blue wildnerness duck which he likes but I feel like he's had a little bit of an increase in tear stains so I just bought a bag of Fromm pork and peas. Many on here seem to use Fromm and Orijen. TOTW is a great food but it's too bad puppy only comes in one flavor. You can switch to adult food at 8 months. Good luck with trying out a new one they can be picky little buggers but are so worth it another thing I recently discovered is that if you try out a new food and your dog doesn't like it most places will take it back and let you swap it out for a different variety which is great because then you're not stuck with a food they don't like or can't eat!
