Default Blue Buffalo

Any one using this food- my wife meets a woman with a plush coay gsd that swears that her dog does not shed due to the food.
My guys are on Acana and also raw and they shed more than enough hair.
Curious if there is any validity to her claim.

No validity what so ever. Others can get more into detail. What your feeding IMO blows away anything Blue makes.

Some plush coats do not have much undercoat, and hence don't shed as much. My two short coated dogs shed way more than my long-coated ever did, and even though she had more hair, she didn't have much undercoat.

Acana and raw is much better than Blue Buffalo.

I wish someone offered Acana where I live. I've had my 9 month old male on a Blue Buffalo since 10 weeks. Haven't had any problems with it, but if Acana is much better, I wouldn't hesitate.

Can it be purchased online without paying crazy shipping costs? Who carries it?

look into Nulo. I feed my GSD and Great Dane Nulo and have had nothing but great results. My Great Dane has always had soft stool but after the switch its nice and firm. Our GSD had really bad UTI problems as a puppy so we have to watch what we feed her. That stuff is awesome. spendy but along the same price as BB and totally worth it.
