There are many reasons, why your dog is so fussy when it comes to food. One of the main reason, is no house rule have been established. If you do establish rules for feeding time, your dog would not understand the important of food and he would know how to cherish it. I am going to break down, 3 easy steps to make your fussy dog eat!
STEP 1 – SCHEDULE AND TIMER
Feed the dog at a fixed time everyday and set a timer for how long they have to finish their meal. You do not want to place the food there for him. This is not a full day buffet your dog. You dog need have a schedule for his meals.
STEP 2 – TIMES OUT AND REMOVE THE FOOD
Remove the food –time’s up! When the timer runs out, remove the food regardless if the dog has finished. This teaches him that, if you do not eat your food within this time frame, your food will be removed and you don’t have food until the next meal time.
Dogs can live for 3-6 days without eating, so don’t worry about starving them. Think about the stray and wild dogs, they would go days without eating, just to hunt for their food.
STEP 3 – REPEAT
Repeat step 1 and 2 for a few days. Be patient and don’t give up before your dog. Most dog would start to eat within 3 – 4 days and once your dog understand the rule.
