    Ok so I'm trying to be crack down on the whole not eating thing - its going down for 20 mins then picked up, the only problem is in that 20 mins he gets distracted, and either goes on a crumb hunt, or simply just curls up and goes to sleep :lol:

    Any advice on what to do? If this really doesn't work in a few days and he really doesn't like this food I'll change it, but I don't want to give in now and him get me wrapped round his finger, so I'm trying to be hard nosed for a new days, but when he eats say a third of each meal then wanders off and sleeps, its hardly worth having it down for 20 mins!

    How can I keep his attention? Would it be better to feed him in his crate? Tbh though I think he would probably go to sleep in there too! Its not like I'm feeding him at his sleeping time either, he had had a nap just before.
