We just adopted a new dog and he will not eat out of the metal dog bowl. He will eat out of our hand though. He drinks water out of a glass bowl. The bowls are from a previous dog but I washed them twice before I put some food in it. I mixed some wet food into dry food and I also just put dry food in. I am not sure what to do with him since we have only had him 3 days. He is four years old and previously was only an outside dog. He has had 3 owners in his life...View Thread
Thank you all for your help. I put his food in a very shallow porcelain tart pan and gave him a few bits and he is eating great now! I am going to try to get him to eat out of his own bowl now...I need my tart pan back!!View Thread
