Many of you will remember the various trials I’ve been through with Django’s eating. After scarfing down her meals in puppyhood, she somehow settled into a being an incredibly picky eater as an adult. She will always happily welcome a handout from our plates, and does a fabulous orphan pose for just a taste, but I’d venture to say that about 80% of the time, she will walk over to her food bowl when I fill it up, sniff for a second and walk away. Unless, of course, if Hayley is around. Then she will fiercely claim her bowl while still not really eating much of it.
As a result, there are times in the day when Django’s belly will growl so loud, we can hear it over the TV. Usually, one of us will then give her a crust from a sandwich or a dog treat, so something else to stave off the hunger a little bit. I always say I’m not going to give her anything until she eats her own food. but I rarely do. I’ve tried many different foods but her pickiness is practically an art form.
A month ago as part of a campaign for Pinnacle® Dog Food, I started feeding her grain free dog food and lo and behold, she began eating it. In the past, her food would sit in her bowl all day, but when I gave her Pinnacle, she started eating her meals at mealtime. Another thing I noticed was that she was hungry and looking to eat right before mealtime. I feed my dogs at 6am and 6pm and while Hayley is always ready to eat, Django wouldn’t even go look at her bowl many times when I poured the food in. Also, those terrible stomach growls have gone away.
My daughter has to maintain a gluten free diet. If she consumes gluten she knows she will pay for it. After seeing how my daughter’s body responds to gluten, I wondered if Django’s body works better when she’s grain free. Django also has a lot of allergies and I’m interested to see if they alleviate somewhat with this new diet.
Pinnacle isn’t only just grain-free; it has many health benefits:
