Eatin' time

I wanted to ask what type of dog food everyone uses. My dogs do not want to eat when we put the food down they like to wait a few hours for some reason. I want a dog food that they will want to eat right away so I don't have to leave their food sitting out all night. Right now I am feeding them iams mini chunks. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

someone just started this so look here. I moved this to the question thread too
I feed Lina Purina Puppy Chow Healthy Morsels Formula. She seems to like it just fine :) There are bunch of threads on here discussing food. If you go back a few pages you'll probably find one :).
Actually, maybe they just are not hungry.
My girls don't eat when they first get up, they usually wait 1 to 2 hours depending on how late they ate and how many treats they had the night before. And some days they are just lazy and would rather go back to sleep.
The best way to get them to eat when you feed them is not to leave their food down all the time. Just leave it down for about 1/2 hour then take it up until the next meal time and do the same with it.
Remember if they have been eating greenies or other edible chews they are not going to be as hungry as normal.
My two little guys eat in the morning and again in the afternoon. They are both very hardy eaters. However, my little Chloe is very picky and will not eat in the morning at all! :roll: Since they were puppies I have always mixed in a small amount of Peddigree in the pouch food with their dry food. I have to admit the pouch food smells wonderful! They love it. It does not stay down long! :) I only use about a teaspoon of the soft food.
