Q. Hi my puppy won't eat unless it's dry food out of my hand and wet food of the floor please help

Answered By

A. Remember that part of the behavior they develop is their ability to "train" us. Although a change in food type may entice him, fish oils can also help, but really if you leave food for him to eat for a fixed period of time only... Eventually he will learn to eat it. I can consult with you much more in depth regarding training and nutrition. 2 topics I really enjoy.
