We are using TOTW even though they have had some recalls. Our girl loves it. TSC has good product turnover on it so we know (hope) it will not be old, and it is always available even in our small town. Her skin troubles disappeared when we went to TOTW.

We definitely have to measure the food as she would try to eat a whole bag of the stuff.

We switched from Kibbles and Bits to Royal Canin about eight months ago. Finn went through a bad stretch of severe diarrhea, vomiting, and abhorent belching/flatulence on it. His belly also felt rock hard. We switched to BB Wilderness Formula on the advice of our vet and breeder. Stools have been normal, skin and coat are beautiful, and he has what seems like more energy.

The only downside of BB is that it's very expensive; 52.34$ after taxes at PetCo for a 24lb bag (largest size you can buy). We end up buying a 24lb bag and one 11lb bag (32.91$) for the month. You also can't find it (that I've seen) outside of big box pet stores like PetCo and PetSmart.

IMO, my opinion is Blue Buffalo.

RIP Sebastian, Baby, Cheyenne, Baxter. Gone but never forgotten.

I was feeding my new boy Blue Buffalo just because that is what the litter was being fed prior to bringing the lil feller into my pack.

He has had nothing but pudding textured stools for the three weeks that I've had him. I'm changing him over to Royal Canin Puppy formula and , then, eventually over to the adult. I may move him to the adult early. I don't know yet. I fed my previous German Shepherd Royal Canin for the 11 years that I had him and he did just fine on it. I don't like the by-products and grain in the Royal Canin, though. And I'm not entirely certain that the grains that are used are non-gmo. I may even try Honest Kitchen out. just because I know that their products or non-gmo. Will see...

The Blue Buffalo may very well be a good food choice but it isn't good for my pup.

The breeder was feeding RC puppy. I've continued it for the past week. Wasn't happy with his soft stool. If I was going to feed kibble it would be BB. I have a commercial raw dog food company sort of local to me. I've decided to feed that. Since switching his stools have become somewhat firmer in the 3days since feeding it. It now contains poop looking poop. Its $89 for 30lbs of the beef blend, not too much more then RC in Canada.
