Honestly, I was feeding Pedigree as a back up because all of mine did fantastic on it.

Yeah, it's not the greatest brand of food, but one of mine used to be very picky about food and if I couldn't get my general brand, I used to get Pedigree instead because I knew they did really well on it.

I no longer follow the craze of "My gosh, how do you NOT feed something grainfree and super-expensive."

I feed what the dogs like and actually eat. My picky eater wouldn't eat BB and feeding 4 ( well, 3 now... )dogs TOTW, BB, Orijen, etc. is busting your bankaccount.

Generally, I'm feeding Diamond (yes, I know the re-calls) but I have not had any issues with them, they are a decent food brand and actually affordable.

My schutzhund trainer said he has 13 dogs!!!!!
He said he spends 4-6hrs a day, every day, training his personal dogs on top of training other people's dogs for a living!!

I've fed the Hooligans Pedigree and they did quite well on it!!! In fact years ago it was considered a decent food ... later new foods were introduced that were better ... but I don't look down my nose at anyone who gives a dog a loving home and can't afford a more expensive brand of food.

I know several people including my vet's tech who feed their dog Pedigree. So IMO feeding pedigree is not "not taking care of them properly" in my book, it is a preference. If their dogs do well on it why would they switch?

Well... ok I also have three cats, two bunnies, a parrot and fish.
ROFL! You are NOT allowed to talk to my daughter (the future "animal horder queen")! Our home currently contains: 1 GSD, 2 Gerbils, and 1 Cat.
