    Is wet food really that bad for Barney. I currently feed him tinned food from ASDA with mixer biscults. I was also given a trial pack of pro plan from his puppy classes, however he really doesn't like it.

    I also can't it locally, i can however get Bakers, is this any good?

    Barney is 15 weeks BTW.

    Don't get bakers....its like smarties for dogs! Not good for them. Hardly any meat or nutritional stuff in there! Sadly my parents feed my dogs on Bakers and i have no say in the matter really....

    Do you have a petshop local to you?

    If you wish to feed wet, then id recommend something like Natruediet. Most supermarket brands are low quality, full of sugars, cereals and chemicals. Avoid Bakers like the plague.

    When looking at what to feed, try to make sure that meat is the first ingredient, and avoid anything with derivatives.

    Are you on a budget at all?

    i think to be honest you'd be better off with the asda tinned and mixer biscuits rather then put him on bakers

    Bakers is the maccy d's of the dog world full of junk but tastes nice! it can make dogs hyper

    Have you thought about buying on one or asking a local pet shop if they can get a better dry (if you want to feed dry) like james welbeloved, arden grange, burns e.t.c and wet food the best i think is Natures diet and ive heard chappie is pretty good :)

    Don't change to bakers. Cheeko was on it for years and he was always stealing stuff and being hyper but I changed him onto James Wellbeloved and there's a huge improvment. He's still got energy but not in a hyper way and doesn't steal anything. He won't eat it without a bit of wet food in it. I either use JWB or Nature Diet.

    I prefer wet food over dry.

    I am on a budget as with having 3 children, 2 cats and a dog to feed, however the budget for food can stretch to about £5 a week for the dog. At the moment ASDA food is £2.54 for 6 cans which lasts him 6 days.

    I am going pets at home later so will have a look to see what they have.

    I think Naturediet is about 75p a packet, and you dont need the mixer biscuit.

    He would need approx 3/4 to 1 pack a day, so max price would be £5.25 a week.
