Can you retrain a dog to eat dog food after being fed only people food? Previous owner did not give him dog food and now he won't eat.

He was dumped at our house and he looks to be a Pekingese. He won't eat anything but begs for what we are eating. We have tried many different kinds, wet and dry.

Mix dog food and human food together and then slowly make the switch to dog food. But make sure the human food your giving the dog is safe for the dog. Best luck.

Start by adding very small portions of dog food to human food. Keep increasing these portions at a relatively slow pace as you watch its response to the introduction. The dog will finally become used to the taste of pure dog food.
