Fresh dog food has been all the rage in recent years. One look at a fresh brand such as JustFoodForDogs, and its no wonder why. It actually looks and smells like real human food. You see the color of the veggies and the texture of the meat.
I decided to give JustFoodForDogs a try with my ultra-picky 16 year old Siberian Husky, Splash. While Splash will eventually eat almost any food, she clearly shows me which she’s most excited about with her pre-dinner dance and tail wag. When she smells something she’s interested in, she’ll do an extra aggressive pre-dinner dance. When she’s not that into her food, she’ll let it sit untouched in her bowl for a few hours, just in case I bring her something more enticing.
