Default Royal Canin Adult Maxi Good or Bad food?

Ive been feeding my fella who is just gone 3yrs Royal Canin Adult Maxi since he turned a year.I have tried various other brands like Red Mills and Hill Science Plan but he had no interest in them. He's not a massive eater by any means,just when he feels like it but he is healthy and very fit and active. However a lot of people on other forums I go on have said that RC is not good for the dog. He really likes it and I can get a good deal on it online also..
What is a suitable food for him,he does not get wet food at all… I gave him RC as it has glucosamine for large breed dogs in it..

If you can get him on raw, that would be the best, at least in my experience.

Why change if he is healthy? Options on dog food are like noses, everyone has one and everyone is an expert. If the current kibble is working, why mess up a good thing?
I've used RC Maxi breeding protocol as a component in my breeding program and my dogs and pups did very well on it

The ingredient list is a fact, though. And dogs are not chickens. They shouldn't be eating corn.
This one is better than the corn based ones, however.

100% agree. If your dog likes the food and does well on it who cares what others think?

I tried out several different puppy foods on my puppy. He would get the itchies, or have diarrhea. He does well on Science Diet. Yeah I know its crap food but no itchies no diarrhea. It's what works. So that is what I feed him.

With your logic you should feed a 5 year old kid ice cream every day because he likes it and eats it all.

You should feed your dog the healthiest food you can afford. It's not about what people think. It's about doing right by your dog.

You missed the part about does well on it. The other foods make him sick. But whatever! You do what you want with your dog. I'll do what works for me with my dogs.
