Hi Himanshu,

You know what there is a time when the dogs will stop eating, request you not to force the dog to eat. It is normal. If you also see our childern at certain age they completely reduce their food, what we do so that they can eat. Try the same thing or rather make a schedule for Food and see the difference.

Warm Regards,

Mandar Phadke

Hmm...fussy eater. I guess gsds r like that. Mine is also very picky eater. Thankfully he eats chicken!
I will suggest u to do some experiments with the recipe. Try per boiled rice+chicken both+chicken. U can also try to see whether she likes to eat eggs, mutton, any special veggie, curd, paneer/cheese, etc etc. Try every variation that can be given to dogs. I am sure she will pick one. Then u can add that to her regular food. Like my pup likes to eat curd & mutton a lot. So I add some curd/mutton to his food.
Regular deworming is also important to maintain the apetite.

Himanshu> Dogs are notorious to blackmail humans emotionally. Infact if they do not eat for 2 days nothing will happen to them. But we as human think ohhh my poo is hungry and we try to feed anyhow. Best way worldwide is keep the feed for 10 min..if ignores remove it. then putit again at the second meal time. Just do it couple of time and it will start eating. Handfeeding is bad.

Hi, sureshot remedy for fussy eaters is put them in company with greedy but smaller dogs for a few days with minimum contact with humans.Works like magic wand,but make sure ur dog is not having health problem first...

Make sure u deworm her properly.. Feed her the things she likes.. Take her for walk regularly.. Dont force her to eat.. U can also try liv 52 if the problem persists but only after consulting ur vet..

Hi Himanshu
lack of exercise end up resulting this problem..
take her out before her meals for atleast 40mins, running is very important for your gsd + walking helps dogs to make a mental bonding with owner.
Feed her twice a day 11am and 7pm
1hr running,1hr walk everyday.. best for your dog

there can be many reasons behind this problem consult dr for bloodtest.

and u can try pedigree professional (black packing) good for your pocket
eukanuba,royal canine (expensive)
