Question Picky Eater

I've been trying to swap Romi over from Royal Canine to Orijen Puppy with no sucess.
After weeks of not really eating the Royal Canine I ordered some Orijen and started to mix a small amount in with the RC.
Romi is not picking out the RC and leaving the Orjen!
Help!

Picky eaters are made, not born. So...replace about 1/2 his old food with the new food. Leave it down for 15 minutes, pick it up until the next feeding time. After a week up the new food to 75% of his meals, and same thing, down for 15 minutes, pick it up. After that week, 100% of his meal is the new food. Don't fuss over him or try to encourage him to eat. Bottom line is you are mom, you know what's best, and a healthy animal will not starve itself. Make sure he is not getting any other treats or handouts right now, so he is good and hungry.
