My 9-week-old puppy Fitz doesn't seem to have much of an appetite. He tends to get distracted when eating, and we have to hold him by his food for him to eat it. The food is the same kind he was eating at the breeder, so it's not that it's a new food for him. His energy is very high, so I'm not worried that he is sick. We've been feeding him 1/4 cup dry food 3 times a day, and he only eats about half of it each time. Is this normal? His food bowl is in his ex pen, which he hates (he managed to unlock it and escape this morning when he was home alone). We put the food bowl there as an enticement to get him to like his pen more- do you think that might be the reason he's not eating much? His water bowl is also there and he drinks out of it frequently.
