    Anything is better than Bakers! ;)
    Depending on your budget there are plenty of good quality foods, going up to great quality.
    I personally feed RAW but it takes alot of research to get right and of course you need a freezer.

    If you want to stick to dry foods or wet foods there are a couple of stickys at the top of here that show the breakdown of each foods, and which are better :)
     
  3. I gave you info on your other thread in dog chat ;)

  5. Nobody can PM you yet, not enough posts ;) Spam prevention thing.
    But if your interested in raw the sticky at the top is very useful, if you want to ask someone on here I would ask Six Star any day ;)
    Here`s a good web rawdogranch.com
    Here is a good basic guide to raw

    It does take a bit of research to get right. How much it will cost depends. If you have a cheap butcher then next to nothing depending on where bouts you live there is a raw suppliers sticky at the top with very good prices although some are area specific. Supermarkets at the end of the day often have sales on worth checking, asking butchers in the area etc.
    Best of luck :)

    p.s If you don`t want to do Proper raw there is stuff like Natural Instinct
    Natural Instinct - Frozen raw human-grade meat dog food, the dog breeders' choice.
