Maltese Q&A

My pug puppy is a little over 3 months old. I'm wondering if I have a picky eater on my hands. So far, he's had Iams Smart Puppy, Bil Jac Puppy, Nutro Naturals. Now, we're back to the Iams. He's extremely actrive--loves to run. He eats food with gusto for about 2-3 days, then loses interest. He'll take a mouthful of kibbles, drop them, then play with them. Also, he refuses to eat from a dish, yet he drinks from his dish. We give no table food of any kind. What am I doing wrong?

Sounds like you have a typical puppy on your hands. Try not to be so worried. You are not doing anything wrong. Pugs think they are people. So, like people, they have their own personality and preferences. I have adult dogs that take each piece of food somewhere else to eat it and then go back for another. I have one that tries to stash it and go back later to eat it. I have one that plays in his water dish and everytime he drinks will jump on my lap dripping water. You can train and teach, but they are still individuals, just like us. As far as dog foods. Please bear in mind that dogs are carnivores, so the FIRST ingredient should be meat. Corn is great for cows, but dogs weren't meant to eat large quantities of it. You can get lots of good info online about what really goes into commercial dog foods. Hope this helps and enjoy your puppy.
