Are you kidding??
Granted, my girls do not get that as an option.
Oh Karen, I wish I was joking, sadly I'm not. I watched a little of your video but had to stop because it frustrated me so much. That's exactly how all my dogs have ever eaten, including my current Mastiffs.
I should video mine for you when I call them up, "Nom noms, who wants nom noms" ... they all come galloping like a herd of turtles. They're all sitting, I put the bowls down, say, "Eat it" they go up to the bowls, sniff and walk away, a couple may take a square away, lay down and slowly think about eating it, the others couldn't care less.
Exactly the same reaction regardles of whether it's raw dinner, a fresh chicken wing or a fresher lamb rib i.e. I just put out 4 x ribs, only ONE of them has bothered to chew it, the others just look at it and wander away, so there they sit attracting flies until I throw them away or the dogs will decide to get them within the hour or so, otherwise in the bin or to the Mastiffs they go, sigh.
I tried the down for 15 minutes & take it away, but they'd starve!
Mine just aren't turned on by food, any food whatsoever is just boring to them, except my own dehydrated treats (liver, kidney, chicken fillet). Even Bully Sticks only get chewed on for a couple of minutes before being forgotten.
