|I think as far as dogs wanting/needing variety goes, it depends on the individual dog. Sandy will stop eating a food if I feed it to her for too long. She's always been this way, even before I fed a rotation diet.
Sandy and Sweeney are on rotation diets. I recently cut canned out of Sandy's diet and replaced it with pre-made raw, but she still gets kibble in the evening and that is still rotated. She has allergies and sensitivities, so I have to be extra careful which brands I choose.
I rotate brands. A typical rotation is like this:
Blue Buffalo Wilderness
Taste of the Wild
and back to the beginning (BB)
Both Sweeney and Sandy seem to do well on this diet. They have no problem eating and never seem to refuse food, their overall health is good, and their coat tends to stay nice (soft, no excessive shedding, etc).
Every dog is different, though. So, this may not work for your dog.
