If there were a kibble balanced for my health available for me, I'd jump on it.

You might want to try Stella and Chewys new raw coated grain inclusive kibble, which is pea, lentil and potato free as well. My older Standard has always been a very picky eater and has only gotten worse as she has aged. So far, knock on wood LOL, I am getting her to eat it. I supplement with a lot of other homemade cooked food as well, but always want them to get kibble so I know they are getting all their needs met. My younger dog, thank goodness, will eat whatever you put in front of her so no issues with finding something she likes.....

It really doesn't seem like it's a problem with her liking the food, I just don't think it's a *WOW I LOVE THIS STUFF* moment. She happily eats it if I have her do a trick and then give it to her as a reward (this isn't true with most kibble I've tried). She will do that for the entire meal portion without hesitation. But if I just put it in a bowl or on a mat she'll take a few bites and then keep following me around instead of eating.

I don't mind turning her meals into training sessions if that's what it takes. I just find it odd!

Maybe she just enjoys training and being rewarded by you. And finds just eating by herself boring....

Bil-jac - it's been recommended before on this forum. I have two picky eaters and they will always eat Bil-jac.

Thanks! I was excited when I read about Bil-Jac a couple of months ago, but Jessie doesn't like it

Not at all! I appreciate the response. Too much information on this forum for me to see it all. In fact, I think I ran across Bil-Jac from the AKC's website not this forum!
