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.

I always feed Saya at around 8 pm. She decided to skip her meal and did not touch her food. It is now 11pm she is desperately trying to reach her food and keeps barking. Should I wait to her next meal, or I'm allow to break the "feed at specific time rule."?

If you want her to remain scheduled, I would say some tough love is in order. She's not going to die because she skipped one meal. If anything, she'll learn not to skip anymore Wink

Tori is right, Axel gets super picky sometimes and will not eat what I give him at dinner time, so, well, love ya baby but you gotta wait till breakfast then. He knows he wont eat again till its time and will do it maybe once a month still, he is stubborn though. But its really no harm.

Lol although you girls were unable to see it I just did exactly what I think every husky does. You know when they get tired of trying t o get something, or just get tired of something period how they lay down and do this powerful "exhale" letting you know exactly how they feel. Lol well I just exhale just like she would. Although it kills me to see her go to sleep hungry. I guess you are right and she can wait until tomorrow (Exhale)

I'm an enabler - but I try to follow that rule...could you give her a treat - so its not her kibble? Maybe some chicken. That always make me feel better about making them skip. They have to earn it of course!

Thankfully, they don't skip now that we are on raw.

I seriously want to go raw with her but I feel like I will do an awful job with it. I have read alot about it but I don't feel comfortable going raw. Although honestly ever since I switched Saya from royal canin her poop has been soft, it is not as solid as it was before

My cali will eat when she wants- so i leave it out for her to eat. She is 5.5 y/o and stubborn. Her previous home free fed them. Mika though, she only gets 5 mins to eat and only needs 2 if that...so i take her bowl back in when done. Mika will go a few meals sometimes and she is fine.

i like the schedule thing, but also, do what you want. I like the calm feeding mika would be if she missed a meal and would feed her anyways. but with my job i don't have set sched for them to work with unless its morning and my Mika brand alarm clock goes off at 7:19 am, yes- 7:19- not :20 or 30..19!!!

Honestly, If Delilah didn't like a kibble she wouldn't eat it. She went 5 days, no one believe me but my fiance can attest to it.

I would feed something higher in protein if I were you, Royal Canin isn't very high quality.

Check otu Dogfoodadvisor.com - I personally only feed 5 star, but I know plenty who have perfectly healthy dogs on 4 star foods.

Well how long has she been on the TOTW? It might be the formula or the way its cooked - Raw has been great for us. I was nervous too. But now its easy. this forum was a lot of help and you can get all of your questions answered here Smile

Well I'm slowly doing the transition by friday it should be all taste of the wild though. I honestly see the difference with taste of the wild although her stools are still a bit soft, it is not diarrhea like it was with wellness
