Dealing with Fussy Eaters: How to Get Dogs to Eat

In the quest for optimal pet health, dog owners are often faced with the challenge of ensuring their furry companions receive all the necessary nutrients for a vibrant, healthy life. This becomes especially challenging when dealing with picky eaters or dogs with specific dietary needs. From understanding the importance of a balanced diet to navigating the vast world of pet supplements, this article aims to guide pet owners through the essentials of canine nutrition. Whether you're trying to entice a fussy eater or simply looking to enhance your dog's diet, you'll find actionable tips and insights into how natural supplements can play a crucial role in maintaining your pet's health and well-being.

Get back in charge

Dog's can get conditioned. If they are allowed to eat whatever they want, whenever they want, with no consideration to what is the best for their health, you could end up with a finicky, unhealthy pet. Take control, avoid free feeding. This can be done by carefully selecting the type of food we feed and the times at which we feed them.

Here is what to do:

  • Feed them a high-quality dog food (we recommend a natural dog food with no fillers or grains)
  • Limit feedings to 1 or 2 times per day
  • Be consistent by feeding your pet at the same time each day. This will also help regulate their digestion and elimination.
  • Leave the food for only 10 minutes (i they are picky and don't eat it, pick it up and give it to them at the next scheduled feeding time). Do not leave the dish of food available for a long period of time.

Within a couple of days your pet will get the idea and their survival mechanism to eat when they get a chance will kick in. The result a healthier pet, and an easier feeding regimen for you.

Note: often the same situations will arise with the fussy eater and the use of supplements. If your pet really needs the nutritional support, you can't let them off of the hook just because they won't eat it the first time. You have to stick with it until they adjust, and they will. This way you can give them the support they need to lead long and healthy lives.
