Default dog food that does not contain barley?

Does anyone know which dog foods that do not contain barley? I've lost all of my information due to my computer crashing. I can't use the new formula Canidae I believe because of the barley. Any info would help. I'm starting the research all over again but I need to find someting ASAP.
Thanks!
Robbie

Orijen 6 Fresh Fish is barley-free, grain-free, high in omega 3s, and excellent food! Grimm is barley-sensitive, too. When he ate kibble, he ate Orijen 6 Fresh Fish. Super!

My GSD can't tolerate barley either - I use California Natural Chicken Meal and Rice. It has a very simple ingredient list (no barley!) and she's been doing well on it!

Are we to assume that you are looking for a kibble that HAS grain, but just NO barley? I ask because the "grain free" kibbles obviously don't have barley.
Canidae has a new "grain free" kibble too, but I don't think it is available yet, so that won't do you any good.

Nature's Logic doesn't have barley.

I've been searching for a dry food that doesn't contain barley and gives Heidi firmer poops. I just started her on Taste of the Wild Prairie formula (which doesn't have barley). If this doesn't work out, I think I'll try Nature's Logic next.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! But for me the reason is that it is almost $30 (or more) just for shipping for 1 large bag.

I also live in an area that sometimes CAN'T get deliveries in the winter due to the weather. Last winter there were a few times when we didn't even get U.S. mail deliveries because the highway was closed due to the snow. (Though I don't imagine THAT would be an issue in your area. )

I just saw the other day that there are some dog food "makers" that will NOT "guarantee" their kibble if you buy it on-line. So you better make DARN SURE that the seller will.

Natural Balance seems to be a brand that is pretty easy to find and most of their formulas are "barley free". The Lamb and Brown Rice is barley free.

As are the Duck, Venison, and Fish formulas. They are "grain free" but are lower in protien and fat that the other "grain free" kibbles. However the ""first ingredients" are potato or sweet potato NOT a "meat source".

I found a place about 70 miles away that carries CA natural. We're going to drive down and get some tonight and see what happens. I'm not even sure it is barley but from what I can tell, barley was added to the new Canidae so....
With 3 GSD's I can't afford a few of the others.
