Picky Eater

murphDear Murphy,

My dog is such a picky eater! He only seems to enjoy treats and table scraps and show no interest in his high quality, top grade dog food! I feel like he’s not getting the nutrients he needs and is too slim. What should I do?

Dear Human,

There are several different options to address your stubborn pup! One option is to get a powder food mix in or something that coats the food like pumpkin puree or chicken broth. A second option is to limit all treating to the dog food your dog is refusing or picking at. Fill treat balls with dog food, give rewards with dog food until he learns to love his food. Finally you could try switching foods! Contact different food companies for samples or stop by your local pet store  to try before you buy.
