what to do if my dog doesn't like their food and is a picky eater | Pupford

What to Do If My Dog Doesn’t Like Their Food, A Guide to Picky Eaters

When I was a kid I absolutely HATED beets. And that hatred (similar to how much most dogs hate bath time) continued on for years. I mean, if I could eat Starbursts, why would I choose beets?! Then, at age 26, my wife put into layman’s terms why I should eat beets. The vitamins, minerals, fiber, etc. blah blah blah. Meh, I was still uninterested and “stubborn and picky” – her words not mine. A few weeks ago, something miraculous happened though. My wife bought some beets from our local farmer’s market and whipped them up with some delicious goat… Continue reading

Listen to This Article Using the Player Above Your pup deserves the best, and finding the best dog bed can make a huge difference in their joint health and overall well-being in the long run! I’ve purchased some seriously terrible dog beds in my life and I’d love to have that money back. *sigh* I remember picking out a bed from a pet store and thinking to myself that I was getting something that would last a long while.

Dog & Dog Parent Approved

The proof is in the tail wags.

See what some happy pups (and their parents) have to say about Pupford!

Goldendoodle in Love

Our Goldendoodle doesn't even like food. She won't eat peanut butter and used to eat her previous food very sparingly. She LOVES her Pupford food so much. I've never seen her have so much healthy energy and enjoy eating so much STRONGLY recommend!   Spencer

My Dogs Inhale the Food

My girls LOVE this stuff. They inhale it. The bigger girl was starting to get picky... No more worries! I can't wait for them to try the beef!!! Leah

Dog Loves the Taste

We got the supplements for our 2-year-old Saint Bernard. He's not having any joint pain yet, but we wanted to get him started early. He loves the taste every time we give them to him. Barrett

My Dogs LOVE Pupford!

One of my dogs is a picky eater and now she is excited when she hears the bag come out, she sits and waits for her bowl and then she spends a little extra time, licking her bowl! Pupford smells so good we all want to eat it! Marcia

Pups Gobble Them Up

Our dogs, who can be picky, gobbled them right up when offered. We train dogs on agility and they work very hard to be accurate in running, cornering, etc, so this joint supplement will do well to keep them up and moving. Al
