The thing is:

As soon as I bulk buy anything, even in diff flavours, he goes off that make. Natural, raw, processed. Why?

Basically he knows he's a human and resents eating dog food, as far as I can see. ( Like the other males in my household he doesn't like green things. )

What do I do?

I feel your pain Orlanda. I don't buy large amounts of anything, mainly because my dog is small and has the appetite of a - I was going to say mouse, but I don't know that mice have small appetites - anyway, she seems to see dog food as an affront so I always buy small packets of anything I've fed her on and I've ended up changing her food a few times, not something I like to do.

She was on wet food for a long time but she's currently on Canagan dried food, which I moisten with warm water. But I can see that's losing its appeal now.

If I could feed her on chicken and rice for the rest of her life I think she'd be happy but of course, that's not going to happen.

I did consider adding a small amount of various wet foods mixed in with her Canagan in order to give a bit of variety, after all we wouldn't want to eat the same food day in day out, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea either.

I don't know what the answer is tbh. I wish I had one of those dogs that just tucked in as soon as the food hits on the floor.

Sorry that's not really very helpful.

Well at least I know it's not just me! I do rather feel that if there were competition he'd eat it..but that doesn't persuade me to get another,
