My dog is such a diva. He had a recent medical scare and the vet sent home special wet & dry food to change his diet.
Historically, he has NOT been a fan of any kind of dog food. The last few days he hasn't eaten the the wet food, off the plate, or the dry food, out of the bowl...that I've been putting down.
So this morning, I thought I'd try something that might play on his greedy/jealous nature. I took a bowl of the dry food, sat down on the floor, and took out individual pieces of kibble yelling "treat" really excited and, wouldn't ya know..."crunch, crunch, crunch." He ate it because he didn't want one of the cats to get it. Put the bowl down on the floor & said "treat"....nothing.
I had to sit for 20 minutes feeding that delicate little flower, by hand, saying "treat" until the bowl was almost empty. So spoiled...but at least he ate and I'll do it again & again
