Dry dog food is healthy for your dog's teeth because it helps remove plaque and tarter when he eats it. That being said, some dogs are resistant to eating dry dog food and they may not consume enough dry dog food to maintain their caloric needs. If your dog is not eating the recommended amount of dog food for his size you may want to try pre-moistening his food before you serve it to him.

  1. 1

    Pour the recommended amount of dry dog food into your dog's bowl.

  2. 2

    Add warm water to your dog's food bowl. Add water slowly, generally 1/4 cup water to 2 cups of kibble works best.

  3. 3

    Allow the kibble in the water to sit for a few minutes so the water soaks up the taste and colour of the kibble.

  4. 4

    Stir the dry dog food and water to make a broth.
