My GR was behaving like Bumper when he was around the same age, so don't worry.... but pay more attention to him especially when u need to correct some of his "bad habits".

1) especially picky with their food
was very picky before 2 yr old. Now he's picky, but I've used to his appetite and habits of diet, then I could control his diet better, and avoid those that he doesn't like to eat, and feed those he loves and good for him.
2) especially good at putting on "sad" face in order to get "human food"
oh yeah~ sure. not only with the facial expression, knows how to dig and search the human food from container and plastic bags too. He loves Subway sandwich very much!
3) sneaky when they have to choose between their well-rounded diet of kibble and, say, a big fat chicken drumstick?
Sneaky is the word to describe GR pups! u have a sneaky bumper, i have a sneaky mackie, and terry has a sneaky billy~
Could somebody advise me on whether I should switch him to one major meal today? Is it also wise to switch him to kibble for large breeds NOW?
you may feed him one meal per day.. .say, in alternate day. or maybe u can try to fast him once a week so to adjust his appetite too. I would suggest u to switch to adult food after 1.5 yr old. If he's tired of his kibbles, u might have to do something to make his meal more interesting. Feed him "dessert"??? my boys love Yogurn & ice-cream. Max loves fried ikan bilis.
I think Bumper is in good shape, as i've seen him before, he's definitely not under or over weight. So, don't worry....
Eggs and apples are good. U've given him quite a balance diet.
