Have had finicky eaters before but it was short lived after employing this tactic.
Thanks for the reply! I was going to give this exact idea a try! After thinking about it, I definitely taught him a bad behavior by allowing him to eat it in his crate after he refused. I just hope that it doesnt carry on for too long, I feel like I'm starving him at times
