Unless your dog has an allergy, I don't see the benefit in grain free foods. I went with Innova. I was happy with the ingredients and with where it was made. Keep up with the food adviser for recalls on food. I had 2 separate vets say "feed Pro plan or Science Diet". I told them no way, and that Science Diet was total crap. I got lectures from both vets starting out "I went to vet school.. and you think that you know more than me about good dog nutrition?" I said "Yes. I can read, and I've read for hours and hours about dog foods, recalls, etc. and I picked a food that I'm comfortable with and is best for my dog". Maybe they don't have many people questioning them, which is sad. He's on the large breed puppy, and he absolutely loves it!

Somebody has probably already posted this, but Taste Of The Wild is fantastic.

Well, the breeder for my little man said to go back to raw if he went on a hunger strike or got picky, she had them on raw mutton for the time she had them with additions for a mixed diet. Here's a picture...



The lot of them stank of lanolin and mutton for weeks, but they loved it! Whenever Bear had a picky streak I'd get him a backstrap of mutton. I did go to a chicken & brown rice diet trying to ferret out an allergy for a month, but I did get him the occasional lump of sheep for variety. I found a wheat intolerance.

These days he went off a really good food by being picky, but I have gone to a mostly raw diet (chicken frames & livers) with the *good* kibble ground up in it. Try spitting out chicken broth soaked powder you little booger!

Just remember he's a carnivore and give him something bloody to perk that interest in food back up again.

My puppy was on Large Breed Puppy Innova but then she got picky on it. So I have switched to Nutro and she loves the lamb and rice.

Orijen LBP was what I fed pup. I fed it dry, and she loved it straight until we switched to Orijen regular. I'm thinking of switching to six fish after this bag.

Her poops are so firm that they bounce.
