    I would always fully endorse a raw food diet .. My two have been raw fed for the past 7 years or so mostly using complete raw foods such as Wolftucker, Nutriment or Natural Instinct. I have tried DIY but I prefer knowing I have everything they need and balanced worked out for me. Just thaw and serve.

    Great Post! Good to get the knowledge out there that raw feeding really is best (my opinion) and to educate owners on the benefits both health and cost. It's what i recommend to my clients as i find:

    1. It's better health wise overall.
    2. Dogs respond much better behavioural wise because they aren't crammed full of sugary carbs,
    3. A fuller dog is a happier dog and who listens to training easier.

    I usually recommend every 10kg 200-400g of raw meat or meaty bones fed twice a day, 2 x fish meals a week to help with possible constipation (tuna in sunflower oil) and always have blended raw leafy green veg with the meat.

    Now i know the first concern of my clients is "IT'S RAW" Now yes that's true but if you handle it like you would raw meat for yourself and cleanliness. Plus i'm a vegetarian but i feed raw as i understand and believe it's the best way to feed our canine friends...It's their natural diet and as much as pet food companies will tell you different, they may look different to wolves but their insides work the same.
