Congratulation s to you for continuing to work through your dogs preferences. I see so many people try raw and swear their dogs won't eat it and give up. Each dog is different and in all honesty, some of my dogs have days where they don't gobble up whatever I am feeding. That's okay. They do without for that meal, but it's okay. They just have their off days. I can feed the same thing at the next meal, a few days or a week later and they will eat it like it's their favorite food. Just like people, they have their quirks. Good luck and it sounds like you are on the right track with Tucker.
Thanks for the encouragement! I have heard that from a few people I've been talking to, when they hear we are trying raw they say "Oh we tried that but Max never took to it." and I'll say "oh really? How long did you give him to get used to it?" and the answer is usually "two days." or something as equally as short. My neighbor said "we tried it for dinner once, but it was not a hit." My answer to that was "well, I didn't like broccoli the first time I tried it either, but my parents persisted and now its one of my favorite veggies!" Funny.
I have to say, so far of the different varieties/suppliers we've tried, I think the MDF (Mountain Dog Food) is my least favorite (and Tucker's as well). It is a better price, but the look of it when I serve it is so gross- not that raw food should have much eye appeal!- I have to fight not to be nausiated. I'm thinking its going to be the one we feed the least often, which is ok, since its also the one with the least amount of variety (chicken, beef, turkey).
