Nikitta I feed **** Van Paten Natural Balance, kibble and meat rolls. My dogs do great on it and love it.

We started doing the same, supporting the little guy. We fed Nature's Variety to one due to allergies, Earthborne to 2 others and our pup was fed Fromms, it was getting ridiculous. We decided to go with Fromms for all 4 and its worked out great, even our allergy girl has been fine on it. Just one mom and pop shopping now vs running around town.

Kirkland is sold exclusively through Costco.

blackshep I loved Orijen although it didn't sit well with my dog (but no kibble did, she's now raw fed). They also make Acana, which is a bit cheaper, but all the same company.

Maybe check out Acana? You may not need to feed as much, since the food is more nutritious than Dog Chow, so it might be more affordable for you.

Shade Fromm and Wellness are my top two choices, Orijin and Acana are also excellent choices. For a budget however I'd recommend Kirkland's brand sold at Costco, they have a grain free or grain included versions which are very reasonable and good quality

mydogs I feed Fromm. Other foods are Earthborn Holistics, Merrick, 4 Health, taste of wild.

Mary Beth What a lovely gsd! For her new food,I would recommend Solid Gold. Their Wolfking is for large breed dogs though my Sting loves their Barking At The Moon. Whatever food you decide on, I would do the switch slowly (mixing a little bit with the new and gradually increasing the amount of the new food and decreasing the old food) to avoid tummy upset.

Need to switch foods...

My family just got our GSD this weekend from a family who couldn't keep her anymore due to the size of their house. They were feeding her Purina Dog Chow (green bag), and feeding her what looked like 2-3cups twice a day, they were also feeding their little dachshund the same food..
Now I am no dog food expert, but I know that this stuff isn't great by any means.

I am looking at Orijen, Whole Earth Farms, and some other "high quality" kibble foods. I would ideally do a raw diet, but dont see how I would be able to keep my cost down to an affordable level.

She is around 11months old and 60-65lbs.
