    Dogs can’t be picky they have no money 🙂  They eat what you get for them. I always loved this Jerry Seinfeld clip:

    But, in all honesty, dogs really can’t be picky, but they DO have owners who will give in before they do.  Consider I have been training and kenneling dogs for 20 years and I never could cater to any dog and none have ever starved to death.

    You have “Italian mother syndrome”.   If I am 10 lbs overweight and I visit my mother while I am wearing pants that are too loose (that I bought when I was 20 lbs overweight) my mother assumes I am “too skinny” and gives me extra food.

    Feed your dog what you think is best and if she doesn’t eat it just pick it up.  Do that for a week if you have to, she will come around before she starves to death.  Otherwise, there isn’t much that can be done about a picky dog.  If you have THREE picky eaters then that would mean for sure we have to look at the Italian mother as to why 🙂

    That being said,  I have been feeding raw for years and never really played around with the commercial raw food.  I just go get whatever is cheap at the supermarket/butcher.  I like to know exactly what I am giving the dog and this saves a lot of money.

    The two most important things to consider when feeding raw is:

    1. Keep things sanitary mostly for the humans’ sake.

    2. Research the right percentage of meat vs bones vs organ meat.

    Here is a decent site that is dedicated to feeding raw if you want to look further: http://preymodelraw.com/page/articles.html/_/raw-chat/how-to-get-started-feeding-a-prey-model-raw-diet-r19
