You know, if your human kid’s not hungry, you let him skip the meal. This way, he doesn’t get fat.
So why is it with dogs, that they HAVE to eat a lot, every 12 hours?
When you PLY and COAXE this – oh he’ll eat, but it’s because he WANTS to, not because he NEEDS to.
Overweight accelerates arthritis and heart disease in dogs. And they can’t just get a bypass or new knees.
When you “get a dog to eat” by his taste buds, he loses the ability to eat what he NEEDS by his hypothalamus.
A normal-to-thick dog is picky about DRY FOOD but a slender dog isn’t picky about ANYTHING.
When you feed canned or fancy fresh food (aka: Pizza in a bag) they’ll eat even when they’re not hungry. And overweight accelerates arthritis and heart disease in dogs. And they can’t get a bypass or new knees. For them, it’s over when it’s over. Years in advance of when it has to be.
So, here I am ‘busting’ on how you feed your dog without telling you a better way to do it?
Just feed dry food, fed dry, twice a day. And here’s the way to feed it: Feeding chart
And is your dog even overweight? How would you know? It’s easy, WITH PICTURES ( Body Condition Scoring With Pictures )
Yes the Harmer’s Dog tells you that dry food isn’t real food. They say that the food is made with toxins, lead and asbestos, and demonizes the food industry EVEN THOUGH the Harmer’s Dog DOES NOT USE USDA GRADE “A” MEAT IN THEIR DIETS.

I actually admire the Bil-Jac company. In fact, I knew Bill Eldridge personally when I was a kid. Nice guy. I highly suspect he has passed by now. He and his partner used to go to Tip-Top poultry on Gresham Road in Marietta and get loads of chicken parts and then take it all down on Hwy 41 to rented space, ground it up and boiled it down to a tasty nutritious frozen food. Sold it to Kroger t first, and then it caught on. Larger and larger accounts until it was Georgia wide! Then the rest is history.
To this particular food though: I feel like their “Picky No More” diet takes nutrition to the “next level” like sugared cereals took 1970’s Mom’s to the next level “getting kids to eat their breakfast.”
Yeah, it’s the identical same thing.

Once a dog has graduated to human meals, and bowls of bacon with skittles mixed in – they won’t eat dry dog food again until
They suspect no more fatty-sugar-trash is forthcoming
They get really hungry
Their leptin levels decline
Their ghrelin levels peak
The owner holds the line and measures the food, and teaches the dog to eat what he needs NOT what he wants.
