I would make sure the dog is not suffering any dental problems or general health problems that would make her ignore her food. If she is in good health and just being picky, constantly changing foods is not going to work. Pick a good quality food that has a strong smell. If the dog cannot smell the food, she will not eat it. Sometimes using a canned food mixed into the dry food will encourage eating. If she is free-fed you can try feeding her 2-3 times a day and give her 10-20 minutes at each meal time to eat until she starts eating her normal recommended amount consistently. Just make sure to divide the recommended daily serving into meals or dog can quickly become overweight.
