I thought it would be Harder! (I also have a Question).
Mom free feeds 4 of our dogs Purina Dog chow. Despite my greatest efforts, she refuses to switch them to a better diet. I'm not paying for it, so there's really nothing I can do.
I wanted to get everyone on a feeding schedule so that my pup wouldn't eat that food, but it turns out I didn't need to.
When Ozzy's out running around, he only goes over there for a drink, but won't TOUCH their food, which is available 24/7. When I went out to switch him from Purina Puppy Chow (what his breeder was feeding) to Blue Buffalo, as SOON as I mixed in the BB, he didn't touch the Purina. I'm so happy that I don't have to worry about him eating their food. I still watch him when he goes over there just to make sure, but so far he doesn't even look at it.
Now my question: I know that Blue Wilderness isn't good for GSD puppies because the protein content can damage their bone structure while they're growing. But would it be alright for me to feed it to Ozzy, since he's not going to go through a crazy growth spurt, given he's a toy breed?
