Picky Eaters Anonymous
#1
So, for those of you with picky eaters, here's a question. Do you find your dog is not only picky, but will only eat 1 type of food in a meal?

For instance, I bought Ember her Fresh "kibble" (meatballs, refridgerated), and some raw topper. The first day, she ate almost all of it, but today she only picked out the raw and left the kibble part. Now she LOVES this kibble and will even work for it outdoors. So this is very unusual - except it also isn't. Ember has always been a "highest value only" dog. I've never been able to use varying rewards. I just thought it only applied in training, never to a meal. But it seems that because the raw kibble trumps the fresh in her brain, she'll just go without?

Anyone else seen this?

Gideon was just the ordinary kind of picky as a youngster and Lily was for about 2 days when she first arrived. That was probably a little stress. She picks out and eats her favorite parts first, but she finishes everything.
Gotta love 'em.

That's how I do it too.

Except dessert. I believe life is uncertain, eat dessert first.

Mattie is a fussy eater. If there is too much activity in the house she will worry about what is going on and not eat. I can't tell you how many times my daughter and I will sit quietly so Mattie can eat her meal. I know some people will say, "Let them skip a meal, they won't starve!" But I am a mom and Mattie is a skinny, little, thing and want my kids (even fur kids) to have a few healthy meals each day. When we travel Mattie is horrible about eating her meals. Often I have said to my kid, "Give Mattie extra string cheese, she didn't eat breakfast".
