Freeway, have you tried filet mignon? just kidding, save that for when you are at wits end. I too fed jasper by hand and sometime mixed in a little wet food with his kibble bowl (evangers 100% buffallo did the trick here- turned his nose up at little ceasars) Also I found, he would eat anything even the kibble he wouldn't eat 2 seonds ago if it was for a reward. Jasper sit! handful of kibble. I got this great pouch from pet staged that was attatched to a ball, I would fill the pour with kibble and a few special treats tuck the ball in real tight and make him work for it. I often used this when I had to leave for a few hours.
But the best thing ultimately for Jasper's finickyness was another dog. Cash's "eat anything" competition makes Jasper eat his food now- Grant it, I still doctor the back to basic Kibble with a cooked raw medallion from Natures Variety. good luck, and the thing having two dogs tought me was = don't worry too much ---they will eat if they are hungry.
