Default Food poll?

Hello,
I was wondering what you all think of having a poll related to food, both puppy and adult.
Just a simple one, one section for puppy food and one section for adult food. That way members can either just click on their food or if theirs is not listed they could add it to the poll.

We are getting a pup in 4 weeks and are doing research. Tons of information out there. I have read thru pages and pages on forum about foods. It is still kind of difficult to figure out which one is the "most frequently chosen/recommended".
If there were a poll , that was just that, a poll, it would help out. Not a spot to explain, argue, etc.
Thanks for your time.

Hello!
There was a "food poll" a while ago, I'll see if I can find it. Unfortunately the best way to decide what food to use is research research research and what will work best for you.
What dog food do you feed you GSD?
There are a lot of threads about food...good luck!

Whatever puppy/dog food you decide on, to avoid digestive upsets, change over to the new food slowly over 3 weeks by decreasing the ratio of current food to new food. You can ask your breeder what kind of food your puppy is eating and purchase a small 4 lb. bag so you can mix in the new food with the old.

You can start up a poll on your own in the poll section. Just make sure you figure it out ahead of time with all the options (can you choose more than one?) I always write it down on a piece of paper before I start typing it up on here.
