My dog was fed on Chappie, it’s basically chicken and rice so quite bland. Vet stated that Pedigree Chum was too rich.
I used to buy frozen meat from the pet shop and cook it in the microwave. The smell was dreadful but dog was happy, probably cos it consisted of offal and veins.
I personally don’t get this dried food malarkey.Posted 4 years agosharkbaitMember
Things our working cocker loves (in order of what I give her)
Toasted brown bread
Eggs (done any way but we do boiled)
Anything vaguely fishy (so fish or skins)
Baked potato skins (not sure they should have much potato though)
Cooked meat – not massive amounts though.
We feed James Wellbeloved spiced up with any of the above.
Don’t give up on the dried food though, just make it a bit more interesting.Posted 4 years agodan1980Member
Chicken breast is OK, not chicken on the bone though as chicken bones splinter.
Raw, uncooked chicken on the bone is OK, it doesn’t splinter. Think how many dead wild dogs and cats there’d be if raw bones (bird or otherwise) splintered!
Any cooked bones will splinter and should be avoided.
Bones can occasionally present a choking hazard, so for example feeding chicken wings to a Great Dane would be a bad idea.Posted 4 years agoGolfChickMember
Be aware my boxer was picky with her meals and got bored of her food. We ended up spending loads of money swapping foods every time she got sick of it instead of just sticking to what she had which was perfectly good. However, I’m also a big advocate of choosing a food that is the best quality you can afford for your dog,Posted 4 years agoLazgoatMember
It’s a slippery slope you’re heading too! We’ve been through 3 different brands abs settled on Gentle dogfood. She did not get on with JWelbeloved. Dried food isn’t all fun, but mixing in some raw meat may make the dog selective. It certainly has ours. She’ll eat all the tasty bits and leave the rest.
Try a tin of Tuna in oil and mix up the dry kibble with some of the fishy oil. Works for us.
There are some raw foods you can buy that come frozen & you just defrost and feed straight from the packet.

How does a dog get bored of food? If it’s hungry it’ll eat.
How many meals a day is your pup getting? Is it on 3/4 still?
If so could it be time to cut it down to 2 a day (am and pm)?
Ours went off his midday feed at about 4 months once he started getting his adult teeth. He’s never turned down his am or pm feeds though.Posted 4 years ago
