    My 8 mouth old boy is not licking his food, when i got him at 8 weeks the breeder had him on pro plan, 2 of my dogs was on james wellbeloved but i got them on pro plan to as i fort it was best to have all 3 on the same food, what do you think of pro plan is it a good food?

    i would have been more inclined to have them all on james wellbeloved since u already had 2 dogs who were doing well on it.

    as i said in another thread, pro plan isnt the best food, but its not the worst either. but i would feed jwb before i fed pro plan.

    Nearly all my dogs have gone off of their food at between 5 and 9 months of age!! i do put it down to teenage trying it on to see if they get anything better offered?? I made the mistake of mixing meat and gravy in with my last gsd's food and my trainer i worked with at the time said i was making a rod for my own back and i found he was right for a few weeks i had a dog who would tuck into a new 'recipe' with gusto and then by the third meal of it would refuse, my trainer told me to go back to feeding, leave down for 15 minutes then remove any uneaten food until the next meal!! I did this and he was never fussy again!! :D
    I now find that whenever my dogs go through this 'fussy' phase i just resort to soaking the dry food in warm water rather than mix anything with it and they love it, then i gradually wean off the amount of water i mix in until they are once again eating it dry!!

    Sorry to go on but was the easiest way to explain what i had been through! :);)
