How do I know if my dog likes his food?
When dogs are excited about food, they tend to show it. If they dig through their food, move it with their nose, or look around their bowl before eating, they may actually be searching for more appealing options. The best way to check is to provide your dog with a healthy treat you know they like.
Why is my dog not eating his food anymore?
When a dog won’t eat, it is referred to as anorexia. Because loss of appetite in dogs can indicate illness, it is important to seek veterinary care if you notice changes in your dog’s eating habits. It is especially important to respond promptly to a refusal to eat in dogs that usually eat well.
Why do dogs circle before lying down?
Many dogs will circle around a spot before they settle down to rest. Your dog’s ancestors had to sleep outside, in the elements, without much warmth or safety. Walking around a spot was a way to stamp down grass, leaves or snow and create a soft, level surface — something akin to carving out a nest.
What to feed a dog who won t eat?
Add Canned or Fresh Dog Food
If you normally feed your dog kibble, he might enjoy a different type of dog food stirred in. Don’t add too much at once, because changing your dog’s diet quickly can cause digestive upset. A few spoonfuls of canned dog food or fresh dog food can add interest to his dry food, though.

Will a picky dog starve?
