    Im really interested in what everyone feeds there dogs, commercial dog food such as bakers pedigree ect are full of rubbish and very high in protien some poeple dont relise what effect it as on there dogs energy levels.

    James wellbeloved and burns are the only 2 foods which are edible for human consumption as they are only made up from chicken and rice lamb and rice or maize, this is not a thread to get nasty if you do feed your dogs other foods just to help and warn people what dog food as in it, since changing tess diet i have see a big diffrence in her behaviour you could be feeding the wrong food to your dog and a dogs diet can have a lot to do with there behaviour :)

    Mika is now eating Butchers Puppy with a bit of Pedigree small mixer in it

    I actually don't care what effect it will have on him now because he's eating and i'm happy he's eating. I'd rather he eat then put him on something he'll turn his nose at and lose weight in the process of it. his energy levels are the same as always - a hyper nut case who's always on the go lol.

    I feed Arden Grange,i'd love to feed raw but having tried it was to time consuming having ten dogs.
    I have also tried Burns but did find that having working dgs they couldn't keep weight on with it.

    I feed my dog Wainwrights.
    The wet food. Now I belive this is a Pets at Home own brand?
    Well anyway, knowing that, I decided to search this forum to find out people's opinions on it and I couldn't really find anything.
    However, looking at the ingredients myself, I'd say it looks quite good. Not much different from Nature Diet, but has 5% more meat in it. Bailey loves it and he's fit and healthy.
    He does occasionally get a few handfuls of Royal Canin too, he's been fed this since he was 10 weeks old and was recommended by our vets.

    Edit: Also to add, it's slightly cheaper than Nature Diet and we are having to cut costs a little bit at the moment because of income changes.

    we are feeding arden grange for the moment But am changing to "that'll do" by csj

    the main ingrediants are chicken, wheat, rice and chicken fat Not sure how the boys will do but for the price of it £10.95 for 15kg its very good food i think all the reviews have been brilliant


    I personally wouldnt feed JWB as it gave zeb loose poo's and his bootom burps could clear a whole house let alone a room and i found zeb was constantly hungry and was eating crap off the floor something he has never done while on arden grange

    I'd love to feed arden grange but sadly losing nearly £400 in wages a month is making us re think everything and sadly cutting costs on everything

    Otto is on Burns mini bites at the moment and I intend to stick to burns as he gets older although I will be keeping an eye on his weight as I know he might get too thin on it as he gets more active.

    My two are currently fed AG,
    I did feed Burns when they were pups and then swapped to JWB,then over to AG.
    I did try an own branded food,however Meg had a food allergy and needed a hypoallergenic food.

    Both are doing well on AG :)

    we've tried giving Mka burns but i don't think he appreciates it as much as the pedigree small mixer.

    Skinners field and trial duck & rice. Good quality food with no wheat and additives, for a good price. As it's a 'working dog' food, no VAT to pay.

    PAH own large breed. Similar in standard to JWB/AG and the like but cheaper. We noticed a VERY big difference when we got her off the Bakers rubbish she was being fed, she is now much calmer and a far better dog to live with.

    Mine are on Orijen, no cereal in it at all, I get annoyed at all these foods having up to 50% ( sometimes more ) cereal in them.
