one of the dogs i fostered is starting on raw in her new home. she is a picky eater and wont touch the chicken. or bone in chicken. she is on beef but there is no bone. any ideas or suggestions?
my guys were so easy to transition so I didnt have this probelm
Raw doesn't have much odor at all. It is hard for some dogs to perceive it as food. I would tell that owner to add some parmesan cheese or even some good quality canned and smear over the bone-in chicken. Also cut some slices into the meat so it's easy to tear off. She could also try searing in a very hot pan for a few seconds on each side. Or add a sprinkle of garlic powder. That usually gets reluctant eaters going.
The first time I gave Odie a chicken neck, she wasn't interested. I rolled it around a bit in some of her kibble hoping that some of the scent would transfer, and it worked! I only had to do it that one time too.
