Still no food

I know that's not new for you guys but it's new for me it's first time I see dog doesn’t like any kind of dog food. My puppy hate dog food I don't know why since i got him he don't want to eat any dog food I change the brand many times and still. He wants to eat home made food not dry food. I try canned food and he doesn’t like it. He is healthy and I take him to 2 vets and they said there no health problem with him.
Now since yesterday I only offer him dry food only he won't touch it or even smell it. I would like to know how long he can stay with no food and how long he can start to eat his dry food and get used for his dry food. i really want him to eat his dog food it's good for him and i think it's better then home made food. Thanks guys I really appreciate it.

I'm new but I'd say don't give up. When he gets hungry enough he'll eat it and figure out it's not so bad. Just make sure and get a quality food.

get him on Beneful puppy. almost everyone will eat that even very sick puppies after he eats that then switch onto something more healthy
the rule of thumb is 4 days, most dogs will break and eat within 4 days, only cats will starve themselves to death
Has he been checked for coccidia? Not normal for a puppy to not eat canned food at least

Sometimes they just go through phases where they don't seem to be hungry or they are just being too picky. As long as they have and drink plenty of water, they normally come around and start to eat well again.

I got him Beneful before he ate the first day some and next day he didn't eat it. i know he is healthy %100 and there nothing wrong with him he just very picky and i will try to change. Tomorrow I will go buy him orijen LBP I heard it’s very good dry food and dogs love it.

my dog decided one day he didn't like his food.
he didn't eat for 3 days.

i finally found something he likes (kibble). my
dogs kibble was always mixed with
either chicken, ground beef, can food,
fish, veggies, fruit, organic yogurt,
raw eggs, slamon oil or flax seed oil (cold
pressed, organic), table scraps, etc.

Can you try mixing the dry in with what he will eat? Perhaps a little at a time.

Let him be and make sure he's drinking water. He'll get hungry again and eat. The real issue is water for now, they can survive quite a while as long as they have water. He may just being a picky eater. I'd stick with the dry food you want to feed him and be patient. If he goes 3-4 days and zero food (even if he does drink water), take him back to the vet.
