I have a 14 month old that has been doing the same thing...her interest is on checking on her toys and bones when she gets up NOT on eating. I just feed her later ( that's an option for me) She isn't interested in food at all until at least 8 am and that's even getting up at 6am and squeezing in a short nap or two ..and a romp around the yard.
I have to mix a bit of wet blue buffalo in with her dry. AND she has to eat by me. This has been going on for months now...so I just figure it's her quirk and I deal with it.

|devinh||Any suggestions on what to try next? I want to feed her good quality food.|

Could be that the puppy dislikes the food and will only eat it because of your presence or being able to interact with you.
I would try another food.

So this morning I get up at 5am like normal and get her out of her crate and take her outside to go to the bathroom. Come in and make her breakfast and she will only eat it out of my hand. I will tap on her bowl and show her the food but she just looks at me waiting to grab a handful and feed it to her.
Any ideas what's up with that?

Ahhhhhhh...so nice to see people make things work for their furry companions !!

|devinh||Yes. I have thought about it. When I would put her food down and walk away she wouldn't touch it. But today for her dinner I put her food down and pulled a chair up and she are every bit of it. She would glance up and make sure I was there and clean her bowl. And she's not good protective whatsoever. I can reach in and mix her food up and she keeps eating like I'm not even there. So I guess I will be sitting with her while she eats. Which doesn't bother me at all.|

That's interesting....my last GSD would pretty much only eat her meals if I was right next to her....so I just continued with it...she'd eat her meals in the TV room with her bowl by my easy chair and dinners in the same place. In the beginning, if I left her food bowl out in the kitchen and left, she would hardly touch it..as soon as I moved it to the TV room next to me..she'd enjoy the entire meal...always wondered if my close proximity might have made her feel she needs to eat otherwise I might eat it.....and she NEVER exhibited any overt food aggression whatsoever....maybe she was just a social eater ...LOL
Maybe someone knows what this means, when a dog is more apt to eat while someone is with them.
I guess if your pup eats while in your presence and it makes you feel better ( it would for me)...then run with it.

|devinh||I just made her dinner and say with her and she cleaned the whole bowl. I wonder if me sitting there with her helped maybe.|

|devinh||She will eat a couple of bites. She seems perfectly fine otherwise. Which is weird. She plays hard but doesn't seem to want to eat.|
