Default fussy poodle not eating

I have had him since he was 10 weeks old and has always been fussy. My other poodle eats perfectly I just don't understand. I used to feed him James wellbeloved but he then refused so I changed to royal canin and then tried the BARF raw diet he didn't like that either. Then I decided to buy Lilly's kitchen cook book but he ate that once or twice but then refused but he will refuse to eat for a week to a week and a half some times if I do the whole "this is all you get or nothing" I went to the vets and apparently he is fine but it's so frustrating as he's losing weight (not rapidly).

It does sound unusual. I think I might try an exclusion diet, and see if there is a problem with specific protein and carbohydrate sources. Are you in the UK? IF so, DAF are a good source of inexpensive single protein meat minces.

Is there a possibility your other poodle is dominating him and making him afraid to eat? How is their interaction?

Yeah I live in the UK so do you feed DAF on its own or mix through with something? And I don't think that it would be a dominance problem as he is the one who dominates my younger pup just now :P I went too see the vet today too and she said too feed him royal canin which is what I do then just said to feed him what he wants but I'd rather give him dog kibble and get all his balanced diet

Also they are really good together and love to cuddle up together and they do share treats and toys etc.
