Siena has always been the exact same way. Hours to coax her to eat. For her, we started feeding 3 times a day... mostly didn't want to eat. Then went to twice a day, that worked better, but still not great. Finally, we decided to feed only once a day and that is working great. I wanted her hungry for din, so once a day is good. She never wanted to eat in the morning. Funny for us the turning point was adding pro biotics (pet dophilus) to her diet and when we found out she had severe HD we put her on a natural anti-inflammatory, and then she really started eating well (was she in pain??) Now, she eats everything in 5 minutes, no coaxing needed.
Good luck, as Elaine said, it is a royal pain. I always have also had to add wet food. She wont' take the kibble on it's own.
