Re: what do you feed your GSD with ?????

This would be better off in the "feeding our puppy" section. Hopefully a moderator will see it soon and move it.

That said, I feed Canidae ALS to all my dogs, from my puppy to my 10yo.

Right now I feeding Lancer Nutro High Energy which is what his breeder uses.

Thinking about trying a switch to Taste of the Wild when we run down on the current supply/after the next bag which is what I feed Kayla.

I was feeding Jolene Precise Foundation and have her over to Taste of the Wild. I DO see a difference in the coat, and Precise is good, but it costs the same as the super top brands.

I too use Canidae ALS for my pup and my adult dog, they love it, and it agrees with their systems. I also have been adding some Sea Pet Fish Oil to their diet.

Re: what do you feed your GSD with ?????

Ok, I personally cannot afford to feed my 2 dogs (10 cups a day total) the MOST expensive foods, but I try to give them the very best that I can. Since you said you've been on Pedigree, I honestly would try Purina One. It's also a grocery store brand, but a step up from Pedigree. I buy ProPlan when I can find it on sale, but Gabby does great on Purina One sensitive systems, and she has severe skin allergies that are no trouble at all on that food. It's very high in Omega 3's and makes her coat beautiful. She also loves it because she thinks she's getting to eat kitty food because it smells like fish and has little bites of kibble. But be warned, it can give them fishy breath! :-)

Re: what do you feed your GSD with ?????

herno1,

Here is a site that rates some of the dog foods out there. It isn't the be all end all (for example most of the 6 star foods you probably wouldn't want to feed a small puppy anyway as they are higher in protein)
But at least it is some info, or a start. But some people do not like the way they rate things, so take it with a grain of salt!

All the dogs are different in what they do well on.

Good Luck finding what works for you and your dog!

I feed RAW and Taste of the Wild Kibble.

Re: what do you feed your GSD with ?????

Mine started off one a German brand of puppy kibble. We switched them to Solid Gold Wolfcub but one didn't do well on it so we switched them to Canidae ALS. When we went through 60lbs of that we switched to 100% raw for them.
