    Sorry it took so long, have a few things going on in my life here and I think I'm going cross eyed looking at all the stuff I've been having to look over recently. Hope it helps.

    LOL, oh gosh no, but its funny you should say that cause people keep telling me I should be and my in laws call me their vet, they call me before they call the vet. I just have 28 years of animal expericance, I have had abuse cases and health issues, and trained by some of the best equine trainers and dog handlers around here, I'm actually and Equine Science honnors student. However I have been in your position, where my dogs refused RAW. I went to my rottie breeder and asked them as that is what they feed exclusivly. He looked me in the eye and said simply, its tuff love, you offer them RAW and RAW only and when they get hungry, they will eat. They wont starve themselves its against their nature, and its in their nature to eat meat.

    Some dogs simply wont eat freash meat, some will insist on it having sat for a day or two, it depends on the dog.

    Thank you for the compliment and good luck.

    The thing is, we are trying to feed him raw meat, because we are butchering our own animals, and our friends do the same, and they were telling us about grinding up, and feeding him the leftovers (head, fur, etc.). And so I was wondering how I could get him to eat raw meat.
    Just wondering are you a vet? Because it seems like it. :?:

    Dog's are actually designed to skip meals, they can go alot longer without food then we can, however you will find that he most likely wont go the full day without food, and if he does he'll very unlikely refuse the second day, when he gets hungry he will eat. The other option is to feed BARF instead of RAW. That is, you cook the meat your trying to feed him instead of giving it to him raw, its the same diet for the most part except its cooked, its more time consuming and you need to add a few things because it losses some of its nutritional value, but its basicly the same diet. Trust me, your dog wont die or disappear with one missed feeding, just cause he's lanky doesn't mean he's starving.

    So just give it to him and nothing else? But he is a Great Pyrenees\Maremma, so he is already skinny enough, skip feeding him for one day, and your afraid he's gonna die!! What now? Really, you can't skip feeding him for one day.

    Some dogs just wont, espically if they're use to kibble or cooked meat . As a rottie breeder once said to me, its a lesson of tough love, keep offering it, but offer nothing else, when he gets hugnry enough, he'll eat it. Only put the food down for fifteen minutes in an controlled environment so he can't run off with it. Eventually he'll eat.
