I get a little to attached to virtual pets (don't ask me why), especially Minecraft because I like to self- role play as I play Minecraft. Anyway, I especially like to feed them,even if I'm not trying to breed or raise their health. I find I feel loved if I get the heart particle. I've been trying to feed my dog steak (and yes, it's cooked), but he won't eat unless his health is down, and I hate to punch him just to make him eat. And when he does eat, I get no particle effect. I've tried both in creative and survival, and both have this problem. Is this just a bug? Or am I doing something wrong?

    Turn on particles in Game menu -> Settings -> Video settings -> Particles: All/Reduced/Minimal maybe?

  • NOW I REMEMBER!!!!! Thank you, Rudolf L. Jenlinek! I was playing on an amplified world setting for the first time, so to reduce lag, I turned of a lot of aesthetics settings. Including particles. Thank you! Oct 23, 2016 at 20:52

It seems you turned off particle effects. You can turn them back on in the graphical settings (ESC/main menu -> settings -> video settings). You have to set the particle setting either to "all" or to "reduced" to see heart particles.

One reason that there might not be the particle effects is that you're feeding them soon after being fed earlier. The time is 5 minutes. Wait 5 minutes, and you can probably get the particles again once you attempt to feed them again.

Quote from the Minecraft wiki:

They will not be able to enter love mode again for 5 minutes, and they may only breed once per item given.
