Okay, i do have large breed dogs (goldie and lab/shep mix), but this is my first gsd. i have been reading how they are very prone to bloat or gdv. now, one of the breeder websites that i went to suggested that if you are feeding kibble, to "float" it in some warm water. seems that once that is done and it is pre blown up before it enters the stomach that it cuts down the chance of bloat. did you ever see how big kibble soaked in water gets? so in other words it is probably better then them getting it into their tummy and drinking water and then allowing it to blow up in their tummy. what do ya think? i mix wet food in with storm's dinner, so in a sense the kibble is pretty much already soft, but in the morning he just gets it dry and i mix some grated rolled food (natural balance makes a nice rolled food) mixed in. has anyone ever heard of this?
