I/we have thought about raw But it seems a minefield, in working out how much meat how much veg what kind of meat and veg how to prepare the veg etc

 

 

its easy mate i dont give mine any veg they get everything from chicken carcasses to lambs head even deer heads ,spines and geese and duck necks through the season the stuff i buy i get from durham animal feeds and my local butcher gets me boxes of chicken carcasses for £11 for 10 kg thats all the prep there is take it out the bag and put it in there bowl

I was given a bag and a half of James Well beloved to try, and it has been great, but just got back from a run into town, where I saw the price of it.

Certainly ticks the right boxes, but expensive.

Anybody else use it?

Mine get a mix of dog meat middle of the price range kibble and the leftovers from our meals, it's the best way of getting a balance and not wasting food with the odd raw egg on top.

 

I don't give mine pizza or other rubbish leftovers only decent stuff with meat and veg.

 

Wife will buy him meat bits from butcher and the odd bone to chew on.

I've bought a bag of Kirklands dog food from Costco. Reading the label the first ingredient is chicken then rice then chicken meal and so on. Thought it looks good so tried it, the dogs love it.

18.5 KG sacks as well £30. The pup bags are £19.99. Thanks for that. Worth a look.

 

Anyone else tried this?

Clicked on to their website and noticed their deal of the week is a *12KG* bag @ £44

 

After lifting my bottom jaw off the floor I decided not to look any further.

If you join the breeders club it comes down to £34 which is cheap for a top class food

I'm not a breeder and hate the idea of having to be in a club to get something cheaper. If they have big enough profit margins to be able to offer it cheaper to others that probably use less food than me then that's their choice. You only get 12 KG's as well. One fifth less than most other manufacturers and equate that into pound notes and you will see that the very top foods on the market...or supposed top foods, are cheaper.

Its the maize and barley that puts me off it on the whole. It may be a decent food, I've not tried that particular CSJ food, however Ive fed the CP30, CP21, complete tripe etc and everytime I ordered a bag it differed from the last one in terms of it's consistency.

 

The one I'm feeding now is consistent, has a low number of quality ingredients and all my dogs do well on. If that changes I'll look elsewhere. Remember I pay £32, which makes it affordable, if I had to pay £50 then I probably wouldn't feed it.
