Lily just had a lovely beach walk and played ball so happy little girlie
You should put the food down, let her try and eat it. Then lift it up after a while. Then put it back down later on in the day. Eventually she'll understand that's what she can eat. Just make sure you go to the vet and check there's no actual issues.
I understand the tough love approach for fussy eaters but I'm not sure this is the case here or the time to use it.
Also, even for fussy dogs, I think food is such an important part of our dogs' days that I'd rather see mine enjoy his food rather than just subsist on it . So for me, I'd prefer to find something he enjoys rather than just eats because he has to.
This mindset is outdated ... there are much better ways of coaxing a dog to eat
I am so happy! I brought a steak pie to see if Lily would have a little of the filling....she ate all of it and some pastry! We had Huntsman chicken so I saved her some chicken, mashed potato and carrots thinking she won’t eat anymore but she did! Yay! Think we may have to live in the caravan and take her to play on the beach everyday oh and she had rice pudding might not all be good for her but I don’t care!
You're going to get a positive feedback loop now - you're happy, so she'll be happier and more keen to eat, which will make you happier.....
Yay yay yay yay so happy for you,...sending you all a virtual hug xxxx
I agree totally Jo! exactly how we feel,if she’s grieving we want her to feel loved and if we can find something she will eat and enjoy then that’s what we try and do for her, she’s nearly 10 and a half now and in the Autumn of her years so why not spoil her a little ( reasonably of course )
Thank you ladies so much, who would have thought how happy I could be seeing my beautiful girlie eating! xxxx
