Help with Dry Dogfood and Treats
I know that there are several threads and websites that discuss dog food, but I think my question is a little different and I hope you all can help.
Shiloh turns 6 months tomorrow and we have had him for about 5 weeks. His breeder was giving him eukanuba, so I purchased a small bag when we first got him. After reading extensively, I realized, that although this is not horrible, I could do a lot better. I purchase Innova Dry Puppy food and mixed it in with some eukanuba. I have been doing this for a little over a week and he painstakingly picks out the eukanuba and doesn't eat the Innova. Should I keep trying the new food and if so, for how long? Or should I try something else? Are puppies like kids, they have to try something 10 times, or more, to like it?
Also, Shiloh has been in puppy kindergarten for 3 weeks, with his younger boxer cousin (my sister-in-law's new puppy) and they would like me to bring in a special treat for Shiloh that he cannot resist. Unfortunately, I cannot find anything that fits the bill. He doesn't really care for american cheese and I have purchased 6 or 7 different type of treats, which he only moderately likes. Is there anything that you can recommend that he will do "anything" for, that I can use for training. We are learning "come" and they want that command to work well.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have learned so much from this site as a lurker, most especially, everyone's passion for their dogs and to help us newbies.
