My 15 month old is super picky..probably in part to her owner😆. I choose to top most of her kibble, even then I have to be creative. Always a good quality kibble, though the one time recently that she ate her kibble dry was a so-so rated kibble. She is currently turning up her nose at BB! Here are some things I frequently top with: canned food, leftover meats, rice, scrambled egg, even some veggies! She's pretty active, so sometimes I crate her and put her food in there, it seems to take away some of the distractions and many times she will then eat.

|Loneforce||Have you tried just adding water to the kibble, stir it up to make gravy, and let set for about 10 minutes; then feed? You say both dogs. Does the other dog eat this with no problem? You might just have a really finicky dog and only likes topped with canned food. A lot of people top their food to feed their dogs. A lot will say just set bowl down for 10 - 15 minutes and if he don't eat it remove food till next feeding "if he is hungry he will eat" I have tried this method myself and like you I didn't want my dog getting sick. "maybe try feeding at different times. Early in the morning, a little bit at lunch, then late in the evening. You will have to see what clicks with the problem dog.|

|Loneforce||What kind of kibble? Maybe he doesn't like it. The first thing I test is when the new food comes in, I try and see if the dog will eat a few pieces dry. Let him smell the bag and see if he keeps going back to it. It took many small bags of kibble to find what Jonas likes. He loves Merrick beef grain free. I was starting to worry until I finally found one. It seemed he didn't like anything LOL.|

I've been having this issue with getting my dog to eat his kibble when given from day one. I was told not to cater to his finickiness by mixing in canned food or anything extra because he'll come to rely on it every time in order to get what he wants. I have tried that for a while only to discover that he gets sick and throws up bile from not having anything in his stomach. So I've been mixing in about a tbsp. of canned food lately only once a day instead of twice but now he's been only eating some of it and leaving the rest when I do this. He doesn't have problems with any other food, just the kibble I feed him and I've tried more than one already.
Should I stop doing this so he can learn to eat when his bowl is down or find something else like chicken or beef broth to mix in the first meal(I feed 2x a day) so he doesn't make himself sick?
Any help would be appreciated. I'm not sure what else to do.
