|My vet says that when we offer our dogs lots of food they will tend to become picky. It happened with my Maya so we changed that and Ramses is doing very well in that aspect.
Maya won't eat because: she doesnt feel like eating, because she wants cat food instead, because she just didnt do enough exercise to get hungry, or because she was a wet-food dog can.
Our vet said to check to see if she had something wrong, but she didnt. He was like "Well, give her food, leave it for 20 mins then take it away. Let her get hungry, refusing food is not nice. Wait four-five hours and give her the same kind of food again. If not, take the bowl away again, and repeat. Teach her, it's that or nothing."
Of course, this if you know the food never caused her allergies or such. Sometimes they are trying to send a message like: You don't pay attention to me anymore, or cuddle me more. Mine does that sometimes, actually she's doing it now. So, good luck!
