Tho they've had recalls, and I've tried just about everything that's out there, I always go back to Diamond, my dogs do well on it..
I agree with the above. For the price and quality it's hard to beat Kirklands Signature Brand dog food; there is a lamb and rice. Diamond Brand dog food comes in several different blends, you should be able to find something within her price range.

I would love a Costco! I don't know who makes their food, but I still would like a Costco.

Fromm is a nice food. Fromm Family Foods Gourmet Dog & Cat Food, Naturally Holistic I get a 40# breeder bag of Salmon or Duck, mix it with a grain free.

Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul is also not bad. I think it is made by Diamond, if that makes a difference. Natural Premium Holistic Healthy Dog and Cat Food - Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul

Earthborn Holistic is a good food/good price too. Earthborn Holistic Pet Food

I like some of the California Natural products for my dogs - they don't do well on chicken or lamb so that kind of stinks but they loooove the Herring! Natural Dog Food, Cat Food and Puppy Food for Pets With Food Sensitivity ? California Natural They have a grain free line, more expensive.

Oops - so the Chicken Soup has chicken, the rest have formulas that are chicken free.

I just checked with one of my co-workers who feeds Kirkland, it ranges from 28-35$ CAN for a large bag.

Hey guys - great suggestions!

I asked if she had a Costco membership - she does NOT. And I don't have one either to offer to pick it up for her unfortunately.

That does sound like a great option though, especially since price is the largest issue for her I believe.

We have had great luck with Holistic Select Lamb, which seems to be a great "middle of the road" food. We feed it to a variety of Mals and GSD's with good results.

I feed Diamond Naturals, as well, for the most part with my dogs. I pay $26 for a 40lb bag, I go through 1-2 bags per week for 10 adult dogs. That price is for the Beef and Rice [no corn, soy or wheat, chicken-free], the chicken and rice and lamb and rice around anywhere from $4-6 more expensive. Yes, they have had recalls, but I have nothing but good things to say about the brand - it is very affordable and the quality is great, in my opinion. I feed my 10 week old GSD puppy Chicken Soup for the Large Breed Puppy.

I second Diamond Naturals if it is available there. I think it has good ingredients and my dogs are doing very well on it.

Walmart just came out with a premium dog food called Pure Balance. They have chicken and rice and Lamb and rice and neither has corn. A 30 lb bag is around $40. My dogs have tried both flavors and they really liked it.
