    Hi I'm on here to get and give advice, in particular anything to do with Foxhounds, Labradors and the BARF diet.
    I go to training with my dogs and would love to speak to anyone who can give any advice on the BARF diet / raw food, diet plans etc.
    Thanks

    Welcome,I have a 2 year old Foxhound,he is a cross between an English & Welsh Foxhound.

    I think there is only one other Foxhound owner on here.

    I do feed mine about 80% raw,but must admit I don't know a whole lot about it,but Craven does seem to like it.:)

    I would love to see a photo of your hound and the Lab of course.:D

    Hi from the other Foxhound owner :)

    Peggy is 10 months old. We don't feed her raw but have been thinking about it. She currently has a mix of Wainwright's wet and Fishmongers dry.

    Would love to see photos of your dogs as well!

    hello im welfare coordinator for foxhound welfare uk, i feed my guys dried food once a week they get a big pan of stew and then one day of rest, feeding a barf diet to a foxhound will not make much difference to him (they enjoy food normally reguardless of what it is,) i have tried my border collies on the raw diet on the advise of a behavuiorest i once got in but did not see much difference, feeding bones is ment to slow up a dogs eating pace, as it takes them longer to get in ate, other rule i remember is veg is to losen stools and bones to firm them up, raw diets i think should be really everything stomachs ect as a wild dog would eat all this but us humans seem to only give our pets mince chicken lamb all meat pieces never a hole animal, so please be careful and read the books out there and maybe have a word with your vet before starting them on the food completely.
    hugs to you hound x
