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.

Hello everyone my ten month old female pup tends to pick at her food not really sure if that's normal behavior. She will have food in her dish for two to four days before eating it

Does she eat a sufficient amount of food per day- even if she's just picking at it?

If she's not eating anything, or much of anything, I would probably take her to a vet. If it's just her dog food, perhaps a change in food is in order.

Maybe offer some hot dog pieces and see what happens.

Even if I put stuff in her food or give wet food she'll eat a little here and there usually her food is gone the. Next morning but I think the reason she picks here and there is that she's in heat and that's when the not eating food much for three to four days she eats a high performance dog food and gets anywheres between 1 1/2 cups to two cups a day

I would put her on a feeding schedule and give her half her daily allotment in the morning, leave it down for 20 minutes than take it away. Nothing more, including treats until her next feeding, either late afternoon or early evening, give her the other half of her daily allotment. Leave it down for 20 minutes and remove. Personally, I would stick to just kibble - trying to coax a dog to eat with additives only encourages them to be picky, waiting to see what else you have and the additives do not increase the nutrition of a high quality kibble.

Also, make sure you are not over-feeding. Its easy to do with a high quality kibble that packs a lot of nutrition (and calories) in a small package.

I have a big bag as I have other dogs as well I only give hotdog water over their food and I do the same with my pup so she's not thinking the other dogs are getting something special she only gets fed twice a day. When she was younger I'd feed her 1/2 cup three to four times a day now that she's ten months it's only twice a day
