Don't switch to kibble. It is not better for him.

Research how to feed homemade correctly, or even better, raw.

Many of our puppies are very picky eaters, but kibble is much easier for us and there are quite a few brands that are good for them.

Have you seen this for ideas?

Pup doesn't want to eat (picky eater?) <-- click that

That is NOT balanced, but if you have some of that PLUS MOSTLY a good balanced kibble he would do fine.

If you are not feeding 'dog' food then you need to read up on --> B.A.R.F./Raw Feeding - German Shepherd Dog Forums those are links with those of us making our own food up and how to have it balanced and healthy.

OP is in Egypt.


There are many websites that explain how to cook for your dog.

Dogs have survived for thousands of years eating what people fed them, and the dog food industry wants us to believe they will not be well fed without kibble. They did just fine before the invention of dog food.

kibble would actually be better than a poorly balanced diet
usually what is available over there is royal canin or some such which of course would have the correct nutrients the dog needs
he could be picky due to nutritional imbalance

No, he is picky because kibble tastes like crap compared to what he has been eating.

What did dogs eat before kibble? they did just fine before it was invented.
