|Kobi would prefer if I didn't write this post and cuddle with him instead.|
We got some food from my fiance's parents, they feed their dog Innova, to see if it just the PC food he wasn't interested in. He ate that down in under a minute. So yesterday Kobi and I went out to Global Pet foods to talk to them about a new food for him. I must admit I was very impressed with them. I was always under the impression they only had dog food but was pleasantly surprised that they had lots of other things as well, they had toys and supplies, and even had cat bird and ferret supplies as well. I asked one of the store clerks for help knowing it would be impossible to find a new food myself. I explained what I wanted the and price range I was looking for and that Kobi is a picky eater. They came up with three brands for me to try, Fromms, Oven Baked and Horizon Legacy. They were even willing to give me free samples of each to take home to see which food Kobi liked best before I purchased a large bag of food.
On a different note, Kobi did fantastic! Normally from the moment we enter a store he is anxious and barks. He remained quiet almost the entire time, only barking twice. Now that being said I was dishing out treats like my life depended on it, but a good sign is that he was willing to eat them. That wasn't the case when we went to Pets Unlimited. I needed to get cans of crickets to feed me gecko and they are hard to find. I wasn't expecting the store to be packed with people that early in the morning and thought I would need to take Kobi back out to the car but he remained silent. He was very anxious as he wouldn't take treats most of the time we were in there but I was impressed with him. On a couple of occasions children came barreling down the aisle to say hi to him but knowing he wasn't remotely ready for that I quickly ducked down another aisle to avoid them. Kobi was even able to remain when in the incredibly crowded line up and even let some people and a little girl pet him. He did bark at the little girl but I gave her and her father warning that he would probably bark and it was going to be loud when he did but that he just has a massive bark and isn't mean or scary.
