    Finally a winner??

    By Tanksmom on Apr 23, 2022

    This is my shihtzu's 2nd brand of Lamb food. We started with Purina One Plus Small Breed, lamb and rice. That went somewhat well for awhile, but still just not a big enough hit. (But better than all of the other attempts of dry dog food besides the Canidae Pure Small Breed Chicken that he was on for This is my shihtzu's 2nd brand of Lamb food. We started with Purina One Plus Small Breed, lamb and rice. That went somewhat well for awhile, but still just not a big enough hit. (But better than all of the other attempts of dry dog food besides the Canidae Pure Small Breed Chicken that he was on for awhile...which he grew tired of but was still never a clear winner either.)My boy has tried too many different foods, maybe that's why he's so picky...but once you really try to please them you seem to go down a rabbit hole and before you know it you're on your 10th attempt of finding something he really likes! ugh. I FINALLY decided to try Lamb (he went back and forth between chicken and beef mostly. We tried salmon...did NOT like, and tried an expensive Whitefish flavor of some expensive brand which had GREAT reviews for picky little dogs...he did NOT like it). Lamb seems to be a winner for him. What I found with the Purina One version is that he doesn't care for the Rice component...that seems to be where most of the hesitation was for him. I went back to the Canidae b/c I just felt in all my research it is such a great option for him and really wanted him to like it, especially with the raw coated pieces I couldn't understand why he didn't take more to the Chicken version. Turns out he prefers Lamb! While I finished up the Purina One I bought the Canidae Lamb and blended the two...that's when I figured out it was the Rice in the Purina he didn't like. I actually sorted out the Rice pieces and trashed them, so his entire bowl is purina lamb kibble and lamb "chewy" chunks combined with Canidae raw coated lamb kibble. It has been the best combo yet. Once the purina is gone I will proceed with the Canidae only and hope I can get by with that...if not I know what I have to do. Nothing will ever be a slam dunk for him...he's been "ruined" by all of this food change.... 5 stars seems to only be plausible for people food. ugh. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this item...but if you're reading this you too have a picky eater who has great potential to disappoint you in your food purchase...but I think this one is worth a shot (it really comes down to if he likes lamb...if so then I think this might be a 4 or 5 star choice!) … more

    Not having it

    By Sweet on Feb 23, 2022

    She hated it. I tried mixing in the bowl boosters she loves in it and nothing, she ate the boosters not touching the food. I tried with the wet food she loves and she ate a minimal amount and around as much as she could so 3 days later I stopped trying to force the issue. She’s not having it so I’m getting She hated it.
