Whole sardines

I have been feeding raw to my two dogs (one 14 mth old female GSD and one 11 yr old male Siberian Husky) for about 3 wks now with great results till recently. I tried giving them a whole, half frozen sardine and neither dog would eat it. My GS finally ate the head and eventually ate the majority of the sardine after I cut it up into large chunks for her. My Siberian wouldn't touch it. Any suggestions on how to get a dog use to eating a whole raw fish?

Maybe they just don't like them? I don't know. When I gave my girl a sardine she looked at me like I was trying to poison her.

My puppy is reluctant on the sardines as well. I find that it helps to limit his choices, that is, I give him only the sardine. Once it is eaten, I give him other things. Also, I have been tracking what he likes and when he likes it. He really hates sardines at breakfast, but is starting to show more interest in the afternoon and evening meals.

I just throw a sardine or two on the top of her raw food...she eats them down with the rest of the food, no problem.

My boy does the same thing, he will eat around the sardines.
If I give him only sardines he looks at me as if to say "I will become dog-orexic before I put that in my mouth"
