    Mine were fed Beta puppy by there Breeders,we weaned them over to Burns Mini Bites when we brought them home,Still on Burns but the Adult Version.

    They have done well on it,very little in the way of tummy upsets.

    You already know mine Garry....but...
    Arden Grange at £36 and Royal Canin which I get at £26 ish
    Every food suits a dog better than another.....its all down to what the dog looks good on and prefers.....
    I have had Purina Large Breed and thats a good one too - my adult DDB male just got bored of it LOL Like he does with every food - so I swap between a few to keep him eating :)

    Well I feed mine on Royal Canin Meduim breed and they are in super condition. I have tried other food but not had such good results Burns being one of them. What suits some might not suit others.:)

    Burns is an excellent complete food, very pure, but some dogs struggle to keep weight on with it, which is ideal for my working dogs, but can be a problem with dogs required to carry a bit more weight.

    I've aways wondered what the smell was , I just blamed it on the kids hehe
    No only joking I haven't had a prob with her , but then different foods do different things Its trial and error what you find suits

    James Wellbeloved is my dog's food of choice. I don't find it expensive though, not compared to foods like Eukanuba!

    We feed our puppy on Royal Canin Baby dog - Ultra sensible as this is what the breeder used. It costs us £35 for a 15kg bag but it gives the puppy everything it needs.

    Bye for now

    we use purina pro plan puppy for weaning & mum has this while feeding
    we have tried them all !!
    this one is our preferred choice
    dr johns dry complete is another food that suits our dogs, when a special diet is not required
    but we are considering changing to a natural diet meat bone & vegetable?
    as this is some thing we have not tried ,does any body else feed this ??

    We feed Eukanuba to the pup's. The adults are on Chudleys working crunch.
    They all wolf it down so it must taste good ;). Seems to suit all 5 of our adult dogs really well too which other brands have'nt.

    Well I must have the weirdest dog...I feed Meg on beta, but she gets really fed up after about three months and will only eat tinned pedigree chum. I have to swap about once every three months. :confused: It's the only way I can keep her eating or she jut turns her nose up...refuses...gives me a disgusted look and walks of in a huff!! I know then it's time for a change!
    Banjo has Hills Science from the vet...he seems to enjoy it...but will nibble at Meg's if she leaves any :cool: <sigh>

    I have just changed our feed from Bakers (I know - hangs head in shame) to James Wellbeloved but I'm finding it too expensive for 5 dogs. My cousin has just told me about a food called Nutrience that I might try.
