We have a picky eater and were supplementing with wet food, Parmesan cheese etc just to get him to eat. If we didn't, he would just look at us with the - really you expect me to eat that?? - look. We have cut all of that extra out and have switched his food to the Costco Natures Domain grain free salmon and sweet potato and he loves it. He doesn't always eat right away and sometimes he has his breakfast for dinner but that is okay in this household.
If you are really concerned about him being skinny, you should always have a work up done by a vet too.

Thanks for the response! I don't think I have a picture of him from above unfortunately. We've asked the vet many times about him being skinny and she's told us that it's nothing to worry about as he's still young and he should fill out. He's due for a worm checkup in the next couple of weeks so I'll ask about it again at that time.
Like your dog, Jake has less of an appetite in the morning and sometimes eats his dinner and
most of his breakfast at dinner time.
We've been trying to feed him soon after his morning and afternoon walks in the hopes that he'd be hungrier after activity but it hasn't helped much.
I suppose it's possible that he's just not interested in his food anymore and we should try something different, but like I said, he gets an upset stomach very easily and we had a heck of a time finding a food that didn't give him a terribly upset stomach which isn't particularly fun for him or us.
Someone I work with said that adult dog food tastes much better and that her dog likes his adult food much
more than his puppy food. Would switching him to adult food possibly help?
