hey everyone,
i dont know if its a big problem but pita sometimes doesnt eat her dry food until the evening and even in the evening she doesnt eat a lot. when a get really worried i give her chicken and other goodies witch she eats without a problem. i tried 2-3 types of food and she doesnt really eat none of them... (until the evening). so she actually eats only one meal a day... any suggestions?

Both of ours will devour anything put in front of them at home. Be very careful giving your Beagle human food. It's not really good for them, even if it's healthy for us, it may not be good for fido. He may very well have figured out that he just needs to hold out for better food by turning his nose up at the dog food. They only thing they don't like is lettuce. Carrots are great snacks and keep them busy. Tinker eats treats when we are out at the dog park or PetSmart but Belle won't take snacks when she is out. Weird. I think she thinks another dog will get her for her food, because she is a little vacuum cleaner back at home with those very same snacks. Speaking of human food being given to our dogs, can anyone name five foods that are dangerous for dogs? I'll start: Chocolate. In large enough amounts, the theobromine in it interferes with their ablity to digest. And that's not good. Other foods have theobromine in it too, but not like chocolate. Name some other foods people, time to test our knowledge here!

EXCELLENT! We should all remind our fellow Beagle (and other dog) owners about the foods that are toxic. I had heard about Chocolate years and years ago but only recently found about grapes, raisons, tomatoes (green parts), potatoe peels, any bones that splinter, and onions. I did hear about the chewing gum just this morning on the radio. Of course, as a kid, I heard gum stays in your intestinal tract for seven years. I was deathly afraid as an 8 year old that if I swallowed too much gum, I'd be clogged up for seven years.... Anyway, good show beaglemom! So back to Pita, maybe experiment with the chicken and add a little bit in with Pita's normal food? And don't give Pita anymore chicken if Pita only eats the chicken. The moment you cave in, the dog wins and it'll be that much harder to wrestle control back. A great show to watch on TV if you get the National Geographic Channel is The Dog Whisperer. It's all about leadership, being the 'Pack Leader'. The head honcho, the big cheese, dare I say, the TOP DOG... Anyway, seems some of our Beagles are choosy, or perhaps just don't want to eat all day long. We feed ours once a day. I understand that some vets say to feed twice a day. All I know is that with once a day, the have to go eliminate right after eating and that keeps our regular. Hope this helps.
