My mother keeps telling me the same thing — her tiny dog is not eating!  And I noticed he has GAINED weight since I have him to her in November last year.  After some investigation with the help of my dad, I discovered that she feeds him part of her own meals and snacks throughout the day.  Ha, why would he want to eat dog food when he is getting part of a ham sandwich for breakfast, some chicken or eggs at lunch, a bit of cookies or cake in the late afternoon, and salmon for dinner each and every… Read more »

Hello! Have you tried withholding treats? Or use your regular dog food as a treat … If you feed can food just make some into small meatballs to feed, if it’s dry food just use it as if it were a treat. Also , this may sound strange but many little dogs don’t like putting their heads into a regular dog bowl to eat, esp if their collar or tags clang on the bowl. Try also offering meals on a paper plate and see if that helps. Good luck!!
