So Dungy will eat any type of food but he gets bored easily and it seems that ALOT of people on here sometimes have issues w/ their dog getting bored too... silly boxers.

So i was wondering this question especially goes to heather cuz u have done it... how do u suggest doing the switching of different foods.  Like do u do one for awhile or one type in the morning and one at night??  Nothing has made dungy sick and i have like 3 types that he likes to eat... chicken soup, Flint River Ranch, and Blue buffalo... how should i break these up for his diet so he doesnt get bored.


THANKS!!!

You can rotate two food but IMO I would try the food alone to make sure it agrees with his belly first.   Then when you find two food then you can mix it up.   When I did food rotation I found three food Hanna could eat and liked.   I would buy one bag, then when it was gone buy the other kind and do it over again.  Mine stayed on a food for 6 months.  

If he is not eating shorter than 6 months my only issue with food rotation is that he is going to figure out if he does not eat you will give in an switch his food around.   Thats not good, thats the dog controlling you.   So I would make a chart of foods he likes and will eat, and then go from there.

he has been on it for almost a month... his poops are nice and solid.  He has had runny poop i think only once since i have had him.  His poop has always been nice and solid no matter what he has ate.  Even when he has gotten into stuff he shouldnt eat it is solid

I would finish up the bag of Blue - then here is some good info from Dog Food Analysis -

Do I have to change brands every time I change food?

No, not necessarily. Look at the ingredients in the different formulas made by your brand. What is different? If it is only the main meat ingredient, then you should change to a different brand when you change foods. If many of the ingredients, including the main meat, are different then there is no need to change brands if you don
