Dogs are picky eaters caused by their owners. If owners are giving the dogs food and scraps from the table, it causes the dog to get used to the human food. Obviously, human food tastes way better than dog food. The dog will not eat its own food anymore unless you mix it with human food. If your dog chooses not to eat, it doesn't eat. Leave the food out and when they get hungry enough, they'll just eat their own plain food.

your dog should just eat regular dog food because it is not un-common for a dog to eat it's own poo.

when the dogs are ready to eat the food on their own... this also depends on the dog sometimes the dog is really slow to start to eat on its own and sometimes the dog is fast and starts to eat on its own really early.

It is advisable to feed the dog food specially designed for that species. Cat food usually has far more protein and extra nutrients than dog food, and it can be very addictive for the dog. This can put the dog off its original dog food. But some dogs can eat cats food and can still eat its own food, if you give the dog cats food like 2 times a week.

Because if they really needed food they would eat their own poo and vomit. Also they eat just about anything.

A dog that doesn't eat dog poop is a VERY good dog! You NEVER want your dog to eat poop, because after your dog may lick you, the floor, or even get into your food. This could get you ill and your house could get sickly to live in.

Well try putting hot water on it or you can always mix it in with wet dog food. Or you could even try a different flavor or type of dog food. Good luck!! Try feeding your dog only Dog Food, do not give the dog any other type of food,especially food that is meant for people,dogs will often shun their own dog food in favor of getting people food..Switch between dry and canned or a mix of the two..It may take a day or even two days but eventually hunger and instinct will cause the dog to eat its own food...Once that happens continue to feed the animal only dog food and give them treats specifically for dogs.People food is not recommended for dogs because of the additives and preservatives it contains.. This is what I do to make my dog eat her dog food.. -I put ground beef into her bowl, and then I pour hot water over it (just a bit) and then I put the dry dog food in, after the water has absorbed the flavors of the meat.

A dog is a heterotroph because it cannot make its own food. Dogs are considered to be omnivores, since they eat vegetables, fruits, and meat.

A dog will not eat its own leg. Dogs will sometimes lick or gnaw at their legs if they are itchy, wounded, or infected.

Pomeranian dogs eat dry dog food, but not all types of dry dog foods because they can be very picky eaters. They should not be given any food that people can eat as well. Especially to puppies, to prevent tooth loss, dry dog food is the very answer. Though, don't worry if they do loose some teeth as a puppy, those could be just baby teeth. For the very best results, dogs {especially Pomeranians} should eat their own special dog food.
