@zande oh 100% he is fishing for something better like ice cream, baked chicken .... he eat out lamb fat left other things, now he eat liver that I put bit of baked chicken on....
So don't put such goodies near him ! You'll end up with a very plump, not to say FAT, little boy in no time and that is not good for him at all.
Plain food, twice a day, down, ten minutes later - up if not eaten !
Basenjis are so good at winding new owners around their paws, you have to learn not to pander to them !
yes it was more to test is he trying me out just he is stubborn, he will not eat and that is it. and I broke my toe so we can't go for runs too.
I wonder how stubborn are other basenji.
Just remembered I had 2 kind of foods, bought premade and mine that I made for him. He eat mine + grandma's given things, and he hated premade ... maybe he learned that he can just wait out for something better and not eat all that is given to him.
just would love to know if he can do that for weeks my heart wont be able to handle that.
Hi, check him for internal worms. My girl is also on raw diet and sometimes she just doesn’t eat her food for few days. But she would eat a bone with meat around it always or boiled poultry. So, when these “mood days” are happening now, I just switch for a few days to different food.
Also, take away snacks these days, they know if the don’t eat their meal, they would fill up with snacks)))) usually, when they are sick, they would not eat anything at all but with internal worms they might eat junk but not meat. Good luck!
.............. to what food you switch in those days. I don't want to go on dry and then off, but I don't know what else would be good?
my boy has been picky eater always. He periodically stops eating things. he loved vegetable now he eats only steamed carrots but bigger issue is he loved raw food for 3 years but recently he just don't want to eat it. I am switching proteins, grounded, not grounded. He just don't want to eat. he likes snack (which I call junk food...)... can he get spoiled as we were at my grandmas place for 2 weeks he eat there his raw food + plus food for beautiful eyes as my grandma likes to share food. when we went back to city he just picks small bits of food or not eating at all.
