If he likes hamburger, does he like canned dog food? You could always mix that instead of hamburger and at least then his diet will be more complete.

Fromm Pork and Applesauce is notoriously excellent for picky dogs.

I'm afraid he won't get within a foot of the canned I've tried.

I've been getting our natural dog foods from a local petsmart. I'm afraid that's the only option we have for good dog food in my tiny town. I'll give tripe a try before I give up.
My goal was to avoid being a short order cook. I won't do it for my children; they get what I make for the group, no special orders. So doing that for our pet seems a bit absurd. That being said I will certainly go the route of a raw diet if that's what it takes.
You're absolutely right about the time frame being too quick. I'll admit this problem has caused a bit of a desperation to get him to eat, and that has pushed me to act too hastily. I guess I was hoping I just hadn't found the one he liked. Though I may be calculating the time I've had him wrong. My life can become a bit of a whirlwind blur; I've been known to lose whole months...

I joined these forums just because of this issue. In my small town dogs are treated as farm animals. It's not easy to find someone who can offer genuine, well meaning advice in such matters around here.
I am grateful for all of your advice.

If he ate well with the hamburg mixed in - can you just do that? Our Bedlington had hamburg added to his dog food daily for years. My mother would just toss some in a frying pan once a week or so, and keep a small bowl of it in the fridge. Toss a couple of spoonfuls on his dinner - done. Unless he's requiring a ton of it to get down a small amount of food, I can't imagine it would throw off his nutrition much.

I think she said it has to be at least half hamburger or he wouldn't touch it.
