Dog food

Recommended Posts

Just deposited for a cocker pup pick her up End of feb I tend to keep her on what food she is being feed until she settles 

I read up on an article from a Gundog kennel that’s feeds wheat and gluten free

so what do others use recommend as so many and differ in price mainly branding I know 

so fair was thinking csj fit’n’fast as I have a stockist close to me

Stick to what the breeder is feeding to begin with.

 

Mine was rubbish on lots of kibbles that I tried so ended up feeding raw. Better poops and the dog was better with house training as he didn't have a bad stomach all the time.

Raw gets vote from me his coat is always in good condition lean and muscular 

clean teeth no stinking farts and good plops fresh breath 

everyone comments on his coat and condition

 

and it cost me about a quid or two a week more than the grain free kibble he was on 

 

get a chest freezer off Facebook market place for cheap and ten fill it up 

plus pigeon rabbit squirrel deer pheasant that get shot get added to this so saves cash aswell

I have used CSJ CP21 which was good at about £33 a 15kg bag and bit more recently I have moved onto Eden working dog food at £55 a 15kg bag.  More expensive but you don’t need to feed as much due to the quality of ingredients.  Dog looks much better on the Eden.

Mixed chicken and tripe with biscuit added for my dogs. In my opinion dry food is just a convenience food. 

Dry food must be like eating cereal with no milk.

Been through loads of food with my springers and Arkela was best for coat and overall condition but loose stools forced me to shop around - have found Tesco stock one called Naturo that they seem to love and the ingredients seem fine.

Skinners puppy food is good and frankly you should be fine with any similar good quality feed. As you say keep the pup on whatever the breeder has used until you decide if you want to change. Dry is fine but I always let it soak before feeding. I know there is a big move to raw but I know a lot of people who have moved away from it with no detrimental effect on working ability, stamina, condition etc.
