Hi Jaci, this can be a difficult one as the only way to really handle it is not to give in and unless she eats from the bowl she goes without. Having said that, do try a few of these suggestions:-
1. Warm up her food slightly so that it smells wonderful (to her at least!)and then pop in her bowl.
2. Place the bowl on a bucket, brick etc - some dogs just dont like bending down so far - this can also be breed dependent or physical.
3. Fry a little liver slowly so that it forms a bit of a gravy and put that in the bowl. If this works, then gradually add in her cubes.
Good luck, Scotty
