Dog refuses to eat dry food now?

My Black Lab has been eating dry food for roughly 2-3 years. I gave him a can of wet dog food once a day for 3 days because he has been really good and I figured he deserved a reward, he doesn't like treats. However, now he refuses to eat his dry dog food because he expects the wet food. He'll nibble on the dry food, then beg for wet food. He hasn't been eating very well for the past few days because of this, is there anyway to get him to eat dry food again and get him off the habit of expecting wet food?

Below is the recommendation and reference answer for question "Dog refuses to eat dry food now?" It was collected and sorted by the editor of this site but not sure the answer is entirely accurate.

you must stop giving him any wet food immediately... only give him the dry food... he shall beg and mope around for days (probably 4 to 5 days) but once he gets hungry enough and realizes the wet food is not coming, he shall eat the dry again...
