Well, we’ve all heard the term Free Feeding. Basically, this means you drop a food bowl and your dog eats throughout the day. Now Free Feeding to me is a term that does not make sense at all from a dog’s perspective. Did the wild dog hunt and occasionally nibble on his prey throughout the day or, if you tossed some freshly roasted turkey in your dog’s bowl do you think he would eat it gradually throughout the day. No Way! Most so-called Free Feeding dogs in my opinion are simply telling you that they’re not extremely fond of their food and when they’re really hungry enough they will finally eat it.
Here’s a simple test if you have a Free Feeding or finicky dog. Pick up a high-quality wet food with a novel protein like Kangaroo, Duck, Lamb or Venison and set up two bowls. One bowl will have your dog’s regular food and the second bowl will have the novel protein wet food. If your dog eats all the new novel protein wet food immediately then you have identified that your dog is not really a Free Feeder. Here’s another tip for FREE FEEDERS more exciting rotate the delicious proteins so your dog never gets bored!
