    I would say AG is the better food. Burns is a lot of rice for your money. May as well look at something like skinners hypoallergenic Field and Trial range and save some pennies.

    Have you thought about adding abit of wet food to the AG or do you think they would pick out the wet and leave the AG?

    Simpson's is quite affordable and cereal free. My favourite would be Robbies if your dog doesnt mind rice. Sounds absolutely divine and you dont use much because you add water to it. If mine would tolerate cereal, it would be my first choice:D

    I'd stick with AG over burns too. 60% rice for £48 is too much for my liking.

    My friend's GSD loves AG, but she mixes in fish4dogs salmon mouse because he's not fond of dry on it's own.

    Also, TBH, I'd not swap because they're going off a food, you'll end up teaching them that if they don't eat, you'll switch or add something, so you'll end up with some very fussy dogs on our hands.

    I put my GSD onto AG a few years ago and it has done wonders for her i would defiantly recommend it. She is made easily hypo by food but not on this and her coat went so much silkier. Although i am considering changing her food soon as i find AG costly but i really don't want to as it has been so good for her.

    You can get AG Lamb for around £25.00 - think Vet UK do it or Berriewoods.

    I have been paying about £25-28 a bag from vetuk or nutrecare, but it is currently £32 on vetuk. I do prefer ordering from nutrecare as the last few bags i have got have been cheaper than vetuk plus you get 3 Kong squeaky tennis balls free :thumbup: which Viva loves :D
    The shop local to me are charging nearly £40 a bag :blink:

    Berriewoods are doing 2 x 15kg AG Lamb for £52.00 including free delivery. Only £26 per bag that way! Claire
     
  9. Both decent, perhaps AG has the edge, also fish4dogs is worth a look!
    Have you considered a good quality wet like Nature Diet
    Sez she who has a store cupboard full of dry food at she types
