Hello again! So I have a 1 year old female shih tzu who is active and a total loof. She’s very playful and is healthy, I have a problem with her tho, she won’t eat dog food:( no matter how hard I try from reflex to royal canin to wet food. The only thing she enjoys is bread soaked in chicken stock with chicken and I know this isn’t good for her so what do I do!

Have you tried giving her some toppers on her food, e.g. shredded cheese, peanut butter, etc.? When we adopted our dog he would not eat any dog food either so I ended up boiling rice and hamburger meat. Slowly but surely I was able to mix in his dog food and eventually switch him over. Best of luck!

Dogs usually won't starve themselves like cats will, so you could try starving her out, she should give in within a week or so. I'm too much of a softie for that though. What does she think of cat food? My dogs do appreciate a cat food topper. Have you tried putting the broth and chicken on dog food instead of bread?
