Kibble

Recommended Posts

For those that feed it, what do you use? So many options out there I don't really know where to start.

Was thinking skinners but had read a few poor reviews - same as Dr johns.

It seems Orijen is the best but not cheap, hoping there was a happy medium.

Thanks for any help.

I feed mine on Skinners , Field and Trial Muesli , maybe not the best but reasonably priced and the main thing, mine do well on it and his coat shine like a bit of silk , so I can only vouch what I have have found .

As previous 2 posts but use Duck and Rice.  Several long term friends do likewise and have for years, all the dogs have been healthy ,glossy and long lived to date.

Maybe I've just been overthinking it. As long as the dog does well on it and what comes out the other end is good, im fine with that. 

Can pick it up everywhere at a good price too

Go to your local pet store, and compare the content and ingredients of all brands of kibble. The biggest variation is price, and the illusion of, the more expensive it is, the better it is for the dog. They are all much of a muchness.

Raw all the way, you will not regret it.

My dogs used to get all sorts as they got bored with one food all the time. Dr John's silver was wolfed down the gold they weren't fussed on. 

I stopped feeding just dry food and bought big tins of dog meat to mix and they also got table scraps mixed in.

I've been feeding mine CSJ for years now. Adult champi and it's great food at a good price, generally sold by other like minded people and not an actual shop though.

I tried numerous brands of kibble the dog had loose stools on most even the expensive ones.

 

I now feed him RAW (BARF Diet) although was getting a little bit of inconsistency, sometimes being a little loose and other times a bit too hard. I have recently started a small amount (1 handful) of terrier meal in the evening only with raw green tripe or complete raw mix, and just feed him raw on its own in the morning, since then he has been a lot better.

Thanks everyone - like the look of CSJ. Will probably look to raw feed in the future when I have a bit more space for an extra fridge/freezer or at least a half and half, with some tripe and lambs heads etc etc.

I had heard some people mention they struggled to keep weight on their dogs raw feeding only, so a bit of kibble was always in the mix - again i guess it depends on the dog

Gone for CSJ, got a feed supply store not far that stocks their whole range and its very reasonable.

Happy with that for now - hopefully the pup gets on well with it

Have tried many over the years and skinners was good but got expensive. This season I changed to Arkwrights. My dogs pick up three days a week on the hill in Scotland plus wildfowling. They are thriving on this and not too much pooh. At £10.50 for 15kg it is great value for money.

honestly my dog a is 13 months old now but bit like me on food gets bored of the same stuff over time. tried a few skinners  and he just turns his nose up to it the duck the muesli mix the slalom one, same for dr johns titanium and same for chudleys working crunch, harringtons , james welbeloved.   But from getting him at 9 weeks old he was on a food called golden fields working puppy that he was fine onto into reach 7 months old and wouldn't touch it not for 3 days on a row. But the worst food going asda hero  and wagg and aldi he will eat but not more than 3 days in a row of each brand but i add a tin of sardines or mackerel to his food, he seems to be doing fine on it loads of energy silky shiny coat but would love to get a better quality food in him but a lot of the dog food only in big bags and it's a shame and expensive to buy a big bag to chuck away if he won't touch it

Always fed my dogs on Skinners muesli, but this latest one won’t touch it. Tried various sorts and the only one she will eat regularly is Wagg. The stuff can’t be rubbish because you should see the condition of the dog.
