Have had the same problem, 11 month old bitch.
She wont eat her food.
I have tried all sorts of food to no avail.
Then I read in a book to make them work for there food. So I have taught her this silly routine that she must do correctly before she can have her dinner. It is a several part exercise of sit, crawl to me, away around the house and back to the sit. Hold still and stare into my eyes for 5+ seconds. Then I tell her she's a good girl and she can have her breakfast. Gobbles it down 95% of the time now. And this after extensive vet tests that told us nothing except that she was odd!. Good luck

I agree with Nick,I would take mine to the vet,i had another dog who wouldn't eat and it turned out to be a dental problem.I know you say that she eats her titbits but I would err on the side of caution and get her checked out

If she won't eat anything I'd advise you go see the vet and let them carry out tests just to be on the safe side.my two energetic spaniels eat till the cows cone home.so there may be an underlying issue.good luck.
