Question Dry Dog Food

I currently feed my 1yr old male GSD Wellness. Any suggestions as to which Wellness brand is best for him, Thanks

Not overly familiar with them, but they are a good product as far as I know. Have you checked out dog food advisor yet? Good place to review different brands, here's a link,

I love the Wellness brand, I have fed it to both my cats and my GSD in the past and now I am feeding it again to my GSD and now my Dalmatian. I also like the Wellness Wellbite dog treats.

My Dalmatian is eating Wellness Complete Health Deboned Chicken & Oatmeal Recipe for adults.

My GSD is eating Wellness Core which is grain-free.

My dogs literally drool over the Wellbites, I've researched the food and like what I see. If I ever had to switch kibble the Wellness Core would be one of the top on my list

I always keep the Wellness Wellbites in the house and cut them into 8 or 9 pieces to use for training. Pup loves it (shocking..he loves all food). I like that they have a min/max % for calcium on their LBP.

Our dogs didn't do well on Wellness, but they did OUTSTANDING on Wellness CORE. I would highly recommend it. I put Wellness CORE up in my top list of kibbles: Orijen, Acana, Innova EVO, and Wellness CORE. I would not feed any other kibbles to my dogs. They have been exclusively raw fed for 4 years now, and I have no plans to go back to kibble ever again. However, when I did feed kibble (before I was educated on the benefits of raw, and before I figured out how to feed raw cheaper per lb than kibble) those were the 4 kibbles I fed. I would buy a bag of each and mix them together in each meal.

My cats get the CORE dry and wet and I would consider for the dog as a food I would consider trying for the dog but no experience with it. For the cost I think it is high in pea/bean protein (some formulas) and actually a bit higher in protein than I am presently looking to feed.

I feed my GSD's Blue Wilderness. Not only is it super healthy for them but I've noticed that it gives them a richer and thicker fur coat and I'm one of those people who like to show off my dogs. =)

If you are super concerned on what brand to feed your dog try the PetMeds food comparison center. It compares various dog food brands and tells you which one is better.
Here's the link Click Here

Ivy-2 (melanistic black GSD)
Jorden-3 (black and tan GSD)
New; Hunter-7 months (melanistic black GSD)
Spencer-5 months (don't-know-color-yet GSD)
Jake-Died at 16 years (faded bi-color)

We feed Victor to two of our dogs. Both are doing well on it. You may be able to get it from a distributor in FL or you can order it.
