Help! My dog is so fussy he won't eat

Help! My dog is so fussy he won't eat

Anyone who has a fussy dog knows the frustration of placing down your dog's meal, for it to still be there two hours later untouched. They’ve been on a big walk, had no treats that day, and still they won’t touch it.

If this sounds like your pooch, we understand your frustrations, and we’re here to help!

When we created Caboodle, we didn’t set out to be the solution for fussy dogs, our goal was to give all dogs a mixed diet packed with nutrients and variety that we enjoy as humans, without the hassle of giving up freezer space or home cooking (who has the time!). Since we launched, dog owners have told us that we’ve turned their fussy four-legged friend into a food guzzling machine. 

Here’s how we’ve done it.


The Kennel Club believes that fussy dogs are often smarter than their less fussy counterparts. They’ve realised that if they hold out on their regular food, they’ll get offered something different. Here’s where Caboodle comes in. Across the week, no two days are the same. We’ve recognised your dog's need for variety and contrast, different textures and proteins. One stack of Caboodle contains seven different proteins, including Chicken, Beef, Turkey, Salmon and Duck.


The first impression may be with the nose, but the second is with the mouth. Serving your dog a mixture of wet and dry food is likely to reduce fussiness according to The Kennel Club. 

Why? Because the crunch of the kibble and the taste and juiciness of the wet food work together in perfect harmony to give your dog a delicious meal which is altogether more satisfying and appealing to the fussiest of taste buds. 

Measured Treats

Whoever said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, has clearly never met a Caboodle dog. We know that no matter what the age of your dog, training treats (or treats to reward them for good behaviour) are an important part of your dogs daily calorie intake. But, just like humans with a bag of chocolate buttons, it's easy to lose track how many they’re eating. Caboodle’s pre-measured, low calorie treats mean that your dog gets the motivation and encouragement they need, without the risk of piling on the pounds. 

If you have any questions about how to Caboodle, we are a chatty bunch and are always happy to help.
