    I have a collie x GSD 8 month old girly,
    We have tried her on bakers and that didn't seem to agree with her and now we are just trying out IAMS. I just wanted some advice on what foods are good for a hyperactive/energetic puppy!
    Thanks :)

    Bakers is notorious for causing hyper behaviour as well as skin and coat irritation.

    There is a wet and dry dog food index on the forum.

    Foods on there are rated which should be some help.

    We have our dog on Wainwrights Large Breed puppy food and we have had no complaints or issues. Shes not overly hyper, her toilets are not runny and she seems to enjoy it. I order online from Pets at home and its about £40 for a 15kg bag.

    Im glad you arent still using bakers and noticed the issues your dog was having with it. Bakers is a terrible brand, IMO. And i think alot of people forget how important what there putting into their dog affects their behaviour.

    Thank you very much I will look at those links now...
    after reading loads about the cross breed and how her toilets was I understand a bit more that its the protein in the food that can make the more hyper! :O
    my friend has a collie and she suggested wainwrights but just wanted more advice on it :)
    Thank you again

    Who has diagnosed your dog with hyperactivity?
