Ok, so Marge is almost 11 months and used to be a fab eater. I've mixed it all up for her re brands... chum, tails, baxters or whatever it's called, gourmet ones. You name it. She's liked all and then got bored, so moved onto the next brand. I was mixing wet with a handful of dry.
Now she won't eat any 'dog' wet food. I can't just give her a handful of dry can I? I don't and won't be pandering her and cooking her food before anyone suggests. Sorry.
Any tips please. I see a special pug dry... but really? Do dogs eat just dry?
I prefer to feed mine Forthglade wetfood, but they’d scoff anything they could get their chops on anyway.
I’d suspect that more pugs are fed on dry food than any other, so if she likes it, I’d go with that :)

Otis only eats dry kibble. He scarfs it down like he's half starved!

Ooh just thought I’d better add that it would be a really good idea to weigh out the food to start with to ensure that you don’t over feed her - dried kibble is going to look so much less in her food bowl!
Just as an example my 11kg cocker spaniel has 120 grams of dried food split between two meals per day
My 8.5kg boy pug has 260 grams of wetfood split between two meals per day
So I’d guess that right amount of dry food weight is likely to be approximately one third of the weight of wetfood you are currently giving

Will she eat the dry food if it is soaked/floated in some water? That might be the best option in between a wet food and totally dry kibble.

I use chicken broth to mix sometimes to give it some wetness. I also switch it up mixing pumpkin or yogurt and my guys love it
Put her on a regular schedule
NO snacks in between
Feed only one type of food she likes (if kibbles water it down ).
Feed less than recommend allowance unless see a weight drop (Usually kibble bags list an to high amount )
Tell family me bets not to feed your dog you are the owner and trainer it’s viral for you to feed her .
It is unusual for a pug not to eat . If she keeps refusing something else might be wrong .
