|Yes, refuse food until he eats kibble, it is the only way. I leave my dogs food down all day though, they have monitored themselves pretty well on there own. But last year when I noticed a decrease in food consumption, I put the treats away, the food consumption went back up and I forced myself to give out less treats. It's not good for your dog to eat mostly bread, in fact, in such a small body, your dog could be loosing important nutrients that can result in major health issues. Naturally, a dog would never eat bread or wheat, sugar, yeast, whatever, not to mention that bread is low in protein! Believe me, you will do your dog a better service by creating a situation where he may not eat for a few days then you are by allowing him to eat a bread diet. In a way, you are giving candy to a kid because the kid refuses to eat anything else, that's bad parenting.
I'm not trying to lecture you, I'm just making a point. I know it's scary to think of your dog not eating for a few days but it is the best thing for your dog in the long run!
