Q: Dry Dog Food

I have a siberian husky. They don't eat much or on a regular basis. Someone recommended Nutro, but he won't touch it. Every other day I mix dry food with pedigree canned food. Sometimes he'll eat it; sometimes not. So for those of your who have huskies, please recommend to me the foods your husky likes.

What do you usually feed your huskies? You could try a normal raw diet, but some people don't like to feed raw to their dogs, but if you do it right its usually cheaper then feeding high grade dry dog food, and its much cheaper. I'm currently not feeding raw, I just had a baby, and it was just to much to deal with, cause I do have to seperate my dogs, or my Lab will eat everything.
I currently feed Blue dry food. Its much more expensive then Nurto. But Nurto is great food. Maybe just leave it out for them for a few days, they'll get hungry enough and eat it.

Some dogs don't like variety. They like the same food day after day, in the same bowl, in the same place, at the same time everyday. They are creatures of habit, and get upset at change.Sometimes a dog can be made to be fussy by changing food and others can get upset stomachs from change and lose their appetite. Start like you would a puppy. Select a food that you can always buy and put it down for 20 minutes, then take it up. The next day do the same. Eventually the dogs will figure out when food time is and he better eat it now or wait till next time. You can do this twice a day , but no more or he will be the one to decide when food time is not you.Huskies are very pack oriented and you really need to be a dominate leader, or he will take over. That could lead to a lot of other problems. Being dominate doesn't mean being mean, just strong.
