I'm having trouble switching over from people food to dog food. My 2 year old " Chorkie " can hold old longer than I can. He has never eaten dog food and so I constantly worry that he gets the nutrition he needs. Everyone tells me " give him a bowl of dog food and don't give him anything else and he will eventually get hungry enough ,and eat it. I've tried mixing a little bit with his food to get him use to the taste but he's smart and won't eat any of it. Does anyone have any clues how I can get it done?

I understand the tough love approach but I prefer to see dogs enjoy their food rather than just eat to survive.

What about using dog food for training (my dog 'earns' most of his food) or feeding from puzzle feeders?

Or continue with the human food but make sure it includes the nutrients he needs?
