Wild Wolf Acana has a kibble line you can rotate, the grain free four: Ranchlands, Pacifica, Grasslands and Wild Prairie.. a lot of people rotate those four flavours for variety/interest sake!

mydogs He eats slow but just recently he seems to be bored with it. I do add toppers. I added egg yest and he had loose stool from it. So I will stick with the Merrick canned as topper and chicken breast or beef

Does your puppy have any issue with not liking the flavor anymore? Have you looked into the Fromm large Breed Adult? I'm going to compare to the four star and see the difference, but I'm hoping I can just mix the Four Star with the LBP until she's at least a year

I haven't, I just ordered a bag of the Fromm four star to see if she likes it before I change brands completely, but if she doesn't I will definitely check it out!

sechattin Haha, it can all be a little overwhelming if you worry yourself too much about it. I definitely was in that position when I first researched foods, but it never helped me figure out what was best for the individual dog. So now I judge whether or not the food is the right choice based on the dog's coat health, energy level, interest in the food, and of course the poop If you try some different flavors and for whatever reason your pup just isn't interested, then maybe look into a food that they're more excited about. But often times just having more variety is what my dogs have been looking for.

Sslitovkin I almost feel like maybe I'm thinking too much into this! There are just so may foods to choose from and it's hard to know what is best without trying every single one!

Sslitovkin I can't remember what the breeder had her on, but up until we got her I did a ton of research and decided on Fromm, so she has never been on another food. If it wasn't for her not being excited to eat I wouldn't have an issue with it, I think she does really well on it. I may try another variety bag of Fromm to mix with it and see if that makes any difference. I've been really pleased with them and love the fact that they've never had any recalls.
