There ingredients are good and it has a lot f protein for active/working dogs!
Good luck with your food search. It really is a lot of work.
Thanks! Yeah it is. Glad you found something that works for your pup, I have found something that works as well.

A little canned dog food pumpkin, helps, as long you have had him checked by a vet. Worm's, flea's, and other internal issues can cause bad poo. Sometimes certain dog foods, no matter how good they are, just don't work for some dogs.
Fromm is my favorite too, but his stomach wasn't agreeing with the LBP Fromm Gold. I have him on NutriLife Gold Grain free fish and he is doing well. I may switch him back to Fromm at some point later, (a different type of Fromm) but as for now, this works well! He has no parasites etc, I use pumpkin and it does work well.
