I still have it out for them....thinking maybe they might want some interest in it later! lol We'll see! Little monkeys! I really am shocked Kizzie turned it down though! She would eat dirt if I let her..... :tard:Pip and Roo were exactly the same when I first tired them on it. The first time they refused to eat it. The second time Roo took a tiny nibble but that was it. Now they LOVE it! Go figure. Good luck on your next try.
When you say juice, it makes me think you may possibly be making it too liquidy? I did that too initially and it really put mine off. I let it hydrate for about 10 minutes and give it a stir, it's definitely not liquidy and they like it much more that way. So maybe using a little less water might be worth a try?they licked the juice but that was it.
I was hoping that was it too! We kept it down but still nothing....Today we tried the other packet.....it was a fail LOLThey might just not be accustomed to that form of food and aren't really sure that's what's for dinner. All three of mine were very hesitant to eat their Honest Kitchen for the first few nights. Once they got used to it they loved it and chow down like there's no tomorrow. I wouldn't give up on it just yet, it took about a week for my three to really get into THK.
It was a little juicy but not bad....the directions said to put much more in than I did I figured that would be way too water for some reason....which it would have been to ME ...the girls didn't like their Thrive either I made it for them today and well they did some sniffling but that was it! *sigh* Funny thing is the STRAY dog we have in here right now got to their bowls and ate both of the bowls right now....that little stinker! He usually just sleeps and when I came back upstairs he was eating it I was like oh crap! lol But oh well at least somebody ate it! I even did the trick I do to Kizzie when I feed the birds...she gets mad and doesn't want to share well today she didn't even care the birds could have all the HK they wanted if I would have done it she wan't gonna stop me! LOLWhen you say juice, it makes me think you may possibly be making it too liquidy? I did that too initially and it really put mine off.

Good luck! Everybody elses pup seems to like it. I just have one picky girl and I have no idea why my "I eat everything dog" doesn't like it....maybe it's new and different but I still have one package left! I'm going to see how that goes!!Good luck! I hope they end up liking them! I just looked at the website. I think I'm going to have to order some now!
I emailed Orijen and Ziwipeak I haven't heard anything from them but hopefully I'll get a sample. I don't want to buy it and waste it lol! Shayley is very stubborn! I KNEW I'd have a hard time with Shay Shay wanting this food ..I'm almost certain she won't eat it...believe me! LOL I know she won't! Kizzie eats anything and everything so I'm a little shocked by that ...this dog has never turned food down so I'm sure if they were interested they would show some sign but nothing and i've kept it out for them....still nothing ugh! Hopefully they will like the other stuff we get if they send samples if not I don't know what to do.....Guess we'll try to make our own food and cut down on the SD and can food. I'm bad at looking at whats in the food....I tend to not read if I don't have to! lol Esp when it comes to things I have no clue about..... I hate to keep feeding them this if it's bad but hopefully that will change! I still have one package of the HK so we'll give that ago!I think you shouldn't give up yet They are stubborn little things, and many, many dogs don't quite get it at first...what else are you gonna give a try to?
I didn't make much for them and picked up their hard stuff.....I let them get hungry still not wanting it. I don't mind that they don't like it, I just want them to eat something better. . .Maybe this just isn't for them. I know you all say yours didn't like it at first either but now they like it? Is that because you let them go without eating? Until they tried it? I know it won't kill my girls to do that but I just think if they were interested Kizzie would try it because believe me I know her, she eats anything under the sun lol I didn't think I'd have any luck with Shayley ... are the other foods like HK? or are they different looking as well?Let them get a little hungry and try making only less than 1 tablespoon for each...?
They get free-fed not like crazy but yes they do! lol I know I could go a meal or two but I really feel bad doing that...I know it won't kill them but I wouldn't want to be forced a meal I didn't like....esp with how Kizz is she would chow it down if she did....I felt happy when Shayley turned to SD :foxes15: now I wish I wouldn't have done that.....I just let them go a meal or two. Your girls are also used to being free-fed, too, I think, if I recall correctly? So they have no mentality whatsoever of "needing" to eat when food is available, especially if its something new and odd. They definitely don't have to like it, but I just know how many were unsure at first and now dance around and whine and shake they are so excited while it's getting ready
