I have a picky miniature poodle puppy (9 months) who I am currently feeding Acana Regionals. However, I also want to incorporate some raw food into his diet. 99% of the time with raw food he just sniffs it and walks away. Is there some way to make it more appealing to him?
Cook it, put it in boiling water for a bit or warm the raw food in the microwave maybe its too cold…

Try mixing in some green tripe. Raw if you can get it (Hare Today and My Pet Carnivore sell raw) or a canned product like Tripett. Very few dogs will turn their noses up to green tripe.
Thanks for the advice!
I’ve tried giving the raw to him at different temperatures, but it doesn’t seem to make much of a difference. Is cooking it ok if there is bone in it?
I have considered mixing in Triplett (he has it once in a while mixed with his kibble), but I don’t want him to always expect Triplett and the raw mixed together.
I feed him orijen freeze dried medallions for supper a few times a week. Does this have the same benefits as raw?

Thank you for advice. I used this trick on my dog also.
