Hi All

Pip has JWB wet with a handful of JWB dry for each meal. She isnt overly keen on the dry, and will usually finish it off in her own time!

Is there an alternative to JWB dry that isnt a pile of rubbish?! Pip is nearly out of her current batch of dry, the Ocean White Fish one, and I didnt know wether to try her on a different dry but keep the wet the same.

I dont want anything with additives and 'junk' in though please!

Thanks!

A supurb dry food os Arden Grange! You can get some cracking deals if you shop around! there is an ebay seller that sells it regulary for less the £30 a bag including postage!

Noushka uses the same seller! and Sallyanne I know tried it recently!
I have been well impressed by it for some time now so I have tunneled vision! But maybe one of the other two would give you their opinions
lol

Thank you DT....it sounds like you work for Arden you love it that much!

I take it the Arden doesnt have much nastys in it?

I have seen the natures diet...they look like large portions...Pip only has half a JWB morning and night, which works well. I would want to keep a pouch open for too long though.

Do you mix and match your foods?

we changed ours on arden grange and the dogs love it...we get it for £22 per 15 kg bag, so a difference in price to royal canin, what we used to feed :D
Good value then!

I have heard a lot about Royal Canin, but many people say its not that great....they just sound good by saying 'breed specific foods'.

Do yours just have dry food?

Natures diet is quite a large tub one would prob feed a small dog for the whole day and maybe one meal then next day if its mixed with dry

Yes, it is compared to £47 for RC :D

I feed mine raw meat and veg as well during the week, but their main meals are only the arden grange biscuits. They like it more than the RC i must say :)

Just had a look on the Arden site and am surprised at how much food they do!

Looking at the dry, they do an Adult Mini Lamb and Rice but its is only available for breeders.....I think that Pippin would like the chicken, lamb or salmon with rice.

Do you know anywhere that does tester samples as it were?

Do you think it would be ok on her tum to use different brands of wet and dry?

She has never had a dicky tum...touch wood!

Has anyone tried the Arden wet?

Im quite happy with JWB wet at the moment although I may look into the Natures Diet. Pip gets veggies too in the week, and we feed her a small tin of mackeral once a week which she loves!


Rona...I have heard of Burns....im not sure if I have seen it on our little island yet though! Is that what Alf is on?

The person who is paying £22 for a bag! that is a cracking price!

Mr Stitches - Arden grange has none of the devivatories and nasties associated with many of the dried food !

Yep! I do mix Nature Diet! Mine have that as their main meals mixed with a cup of AG at each meal! If I have any problems I will totally remove the dry!

I pack of nature diet will keep up to 48 hours in the fridge once unopened I believe!

Can I ask why you changed from JWB? Did your dogs have any bad tums/wind etc?

Sounds like a good food then....its great that you mix the two! Pip may be having the same food as yours soon! Its good that it keeps in the fridge....so long as OH doesnt mistake it as his lunch :D

No Alfie has Nature Diet and Chappie tinned. He does get a little JWB spread around the Garden. I do have to be extra careful what I feed because if Muddy.
JWB doesn't upset Muddys tum in small quantities

Know the question is not aimed am me but that is a know downside to the JWB pups/dogs fed on that often produce much more waste that on other compatiable dry Food!

The name Chappie always makes me smile...I always think of a cute little scottier terrier or something!

Thats a good idea to spread it around the garden, I like that :)
