There are a lot of good foods out there in all price ranges. Many, MANY, threads on foods. Sierra has done well on Canidae. Her coat is soft. It's not grain free but does have a good amount of meat in it without many fillers. I thought he needed about 5# on him. Just have Cheyenne keep doing what she's doing. No long eye contact from her. That is a challenge to dogs unless they know you.
