Default Stella & Chewy

I thought I would try some Stella & Chewy Freeze-Dried for Chico...I bought the Lamb, Duck Duck goose, and Beef Dinner.... it says to soak in 1/4 cup of water but Chico won't even sniff it when I set it down.....

am I doing something wrong?? I hear stories of how their doggies just LOVE this brand but Chico turns his nose up at it........

Help!

Mine certainly love it! I soak it in warm water for about 10-15 minutes (unless it the duck duck goose, which tends to be much softer and flakier) and then mash it up with a fork so it looks a bit like canned food.

What does he normally eat Jan? I can't remember. If he's on kibble, the S&C won't have much smell in comparison. Maybe sprinkle on just a bit of parmesan cheese on top to get him started. The lamb is Brody's favorite by far.

I feed about 1/2-3/4 patty 2x a day. I chop it up into 3-4 pieces then add some water cuz it soaks up better that way. After its soft I DRAIN the water all out then mash it up, add supplements, then feed! My girls scarf it down like no other!

You could always try tough love Jan, if you want. Just put it down (with or without a sprinkle of parmesan) and let him choose to eat or not. 10 minutes should be enough. If he doesn't want to eat, then put it back in the fridge and NOTHING at all to eat until dinnertime. After a couple of missed meals, he will choose to eat.

well, after getting tired of hand-feeding Chico for a few days... I just thought this brand wasn't for Chico but I opened a bag of the Beef and tried it tonight.... he eat it without hand feeding!!.... I guess he just doesn't like Lamb.... poor Chico.... I guess it was like me getting force fed Liver n' Onions for a week.... PLECK!! I will get rid of the lamb and feed the Beef now.... I still have a bag of the Duck but won't try that flavor for awhile...

Awe Chico thinks its yucky!

LOL when we travel, I tend to feed it dry. They love it and think it is a biscuit. Leah is sooooo picky when we are out at shows, she will NOT eat it mixed with water but she'll eat it dry like it's a treat.
