Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Bandit has been pretty lethargic about food lately. She eats it all just not at the normal feeding times. She will sniff it, put it in her mouth then just drop it. Other times She dives right in. For the past two weeks it has been going on. Some days she is a lazy blob and others hyper as hell. She used to get super excited about food now not so much. She still eats it all though eventually. Maybe lack of excersize? I have been pretty busy lately so we don't always get our daily walk in. Or is it her just being a husky? Maybe try a new food?

Cut back a bit on the quantity - she is older now and not growing quite so rapidly. Also, the reduction in exercise could very well be reducing her appetite.

But...someone needs to walk the girl, if not you, maybe a relative? A dog walker?

Okay the last few days I've put other things on hold to include most excessive time with Bandit. Back to at least one walk a day and a generous amount of play time with myself. Still a little picky about eating. I have to persuade her to eat. Pretend I beat her food and then she will eat it. Maybe it's time for a new food? Currently taste of the wild is what I'm feeding her

I wouldn't suggest changing her food if it doesn't cause any stomach upset and is giving her solid and healthy looking eliminations. I would suggest making the time to walk your dog every day, or hiring a dog walker.

In addition to this, it isn't the end of the world if a dog skips a meal. As long as he/she is eating regularly enough and not avoiding food/treats day after day, I don't think it is much to worry about. My dog skips meals frequently and other days he will wolf everything down in a heartbeat. He is at a very healthy weight because of his seldom skipped meals and daily exercise.

She's just being a diva... I'll pretend to eat some and she will pretend to be interested. She wants me to hand feed her lol such a spoiled rotten girl. So I've been hand feeding half then just holding the bowl for the rest.
