I have a 10 month old labrador puppy,The problem is that he is less interested in the food?

I have a 10 month old labrador puppy.My dog was eating regularly till the age of 8 months.He is fed 3 times a day with dog food(pedigree) along with some home prepared food.The problem is that he is less interested in the food given to him and more interested in food stuffs like fruits(most favourite),chocolates,custard,ice-creams.Secondly he is very choosy on the flavor of dog food ..you can't repeat the same next month morever I can't afford feeding him Royal Canine.The feeding is the biggest headache of mine of what new I have to invent every month to feed him.And mind it he is very stubborn he would simply refuse to eat if his demands are not met (unlike any lab always salivating for food). His weight is 29 kgs as on today and dewormed regularly.Plz Help.

first do NOT mix kibbles (pedigree) with home-made. Both take different time to digest. Kibbles are the longest time consuming for digestion. And remember that you need to FIRST toughen yourself to change his food habits. Love and affection always overcome humans when it comes to feeding. Give him Pedigree or if you can go a bit ahead try RC AGR/HE series. Costs somewhat close to pedigree.Keep the feed in front of him and let it be there for 15 min. Then take it away. Do this for a day and when hunger comes onhim , he will eat himself. HE seems to be pampered a lot. Choco is a NO-NO.. can cause sudden death if given a bit more...fruits are great.same goes for ice-creams..normal flavours..Instead give him 250-500 gm of yogurt/dahi each day..Try to do these and hopefully things will be smoother soon . But keep your emotions under control. You need to teach him that you are the BOSS...
