Finally, A dry kibble my picky eater loves

Petunia just made 14 months old, she been just wonderful and is very healthy, weighing 12.5 lbs.
She is however an extremely picky eater, she absolutely loves apples, bananas and blueberries so we give that to her as a special treat now and then. But when it comes to eating her dog food it's been a problem, I honestly think I throw away more dog food everyday then she eats.
I only buy the premium brand dog foods because I want her to eat a high quality kibble. I've tried canned and she turns her nose up at that too.
She eventually eats whatever I put down but more times then not it will sit there all day and night. We've tried Solid Gold, Wellness, Natural Balance, Eukanuba, Nutro etc.... Bottom line is that, she does not enjoy the dog food that I buy.
UNTIL NOW!!!
Last month I happened to find a feed store that sells the Fromm Brand.
I bought a bag of the sweet potato formula for Petunia to try.
She is crazy about it, as soon as I pour it in her dish she starts eating it. It pleases me to know she is eating a health food and at the same time enjoying it. Not to mention that I'm not wasting money trying different brands of dog food anymore.
For those of you with the picky eaters like Petunia, I highly suggest you try Fromm.

Like yourself, we had the same issues with Beamer no eating any kibble. We tried the exact one you are now using and he hated it.. lol..

How long has Petunia been eating it for? Hopefully she keeps on enjoying it!

I guess that all picky eaters aren't alike. LOL!
At first I was putting it side by side with the Solid Gold, she would eat only the Fromms and leave the Solid Gold.
She has been eating the Fromm's very enthusiastically now for about 5 weeks.
Next time I buy, I'm going to try the other Fromm blends so she will have some variety.

*Note* She doesn't eat her food while standing at her dish. She grabs a mouthful, walks over to her favorite spot, drops it, eats it, then returns to the dish for some more and her routine continues.

Funny. Milo takes a mouthful of his kibble and brings it to his favorite dining spot and then eats. My group has been on Fromm's since I changed Milo over to it in 2007. Unfortunately for a long time now they all stopped eating it with any enthusiasm and it would sit for hours in their bowls. I finally gave up but think I'll try the other combinations before I write it off altogether.

I am so glad Petunia likes this food!
Let's hope she keeps it up the good eating.
I adore her!

Ya'll just need a second dog (or third or fourth or fifth). <VBG> My guys will eat ANYTHING for fear that someone else might eat it.

My guys eat raw so on the rare occassion when they get kibble (like when I forget to thaw food) they eat it like its junk food.

I had a few chuckles off of this thread! I will have to see if there are any samples at my pet store to try...some days, Dexter will eat everything and sometimes, he shows no interest in the food....but, then I find out his bowels are bothering him.

As long as Dexter is playing, peeing and pooing, I do not worry about ALL the food that is wasted................... sure am glad that I do not have a BIG dog! And, I am sure if I had another dog...the food would disappear. I would save money on food if I got another Hav!

I am just starting the process of switching my picky eater Stogie from Natural Balance to Orijen. He is convinced that the Orijen in not kibble, but cookies!

Yesterday was the first day with some Orijen mixed in. I gave him the mixture for breakfast and before I knew it, there were little piles kibble all over the living room floor... He was meticulously picking out only the Orijen kibble & leaving the others.

So at dinner time, I gave him some of his usual Natural Balance & then some of the Orijen afterward. This worked much better. This morning at breakfast, he ate the Natural Balance and ran to the kitchen looking for the Orijen!

I think he truly thinks the Orijen is cookies and that I am off my rocker giving it to him as a meal!!

i have 2 dogs and they are both extremely picky.
kibble is ok some days and other days they look at me like i'm a fool to have put this in their dishes.
same with wet food. at first they were in heaven and pushing and shoving the other out of the way, now it depend on where the moon is when the dish hits the floor.

then i made the biggest mistake...i gave them some 'beggin strips' which they love and would sell their souls for another piece but they wont eat kibble or wet now.

greetings from mugsy & me
