HOW DO YOU ADDRESS PICKY EATING?

SCENE ZONE

1 DON’T GIVE IN Yes, you have to toughen up when a companion animal starts staring at you with those puppy eyes. In this case, it is the human companions who needs to be trained not to give any table scraps, however much a dog tries to beg. 2 INVOLVE THE ENTIRE FAMILY Make sure that the whole household is on board. Everyone should agree not to give table food and unplanned treats. 3 LIMIT TREATS Limit the amount of treats you give them as well, especially when it’s almost meal time. 4 START A ROUTINE Provide a space for their meals that would make animal companions feel safe and comfortable, preferably somewhere that doesn’t have too much activity or noise. Always consider sticking strictly to their feeding schedules. 5 SWITCH IT UP Try making their meals not only filling but also fun! Consider making their meals a little different each day. Try other food brands, but if you’re shifting them to another food, do so gradually.
