Fish4dogs is an excellent food, as is Taste of the Wild (and both cheaper than Pro Plan) and Evo, but thats hard to find in the UK

On the cheaper end... Skinners field and trial ones are ok, and wainwrights, both good for the money, obviously not as good as the ones above

These are just the ones I have looked into myself

Fish4Dogs Finest is what I feed.

Higher proteins like Applaws and Origen didn't go well for my boy and I lately heard not very positive things about Applaws anyway (the dry mostly).

Fish4dogs seems a great food. Arden Grange is another. Burns mini bites gets mentioned a lot on her, I've heard a lot of good things about it, but at 60% rice, it seems hugely expensive for a giant bag of fillers to me. Orijen may seem expensive, but when you take into account the feeding amounts, it's often cheaper, or the same per day to feed as most of the cheaper foods.

I know you said dry only, but kibble is much more likely to upset a sensitive tummy because of fillers, additives and such. So maybe take a look at something like this?

Natural Instinct - High Quality Natural Dog Food

No fillers, no added crap, so nothing to upset a sensitive stomach.

That said, Novak's sensitive stomach settled once I swapped him to Skinners duck and rice and started him on protexin profiber.

I'm a Skinners convert. Sadly their puppy isnt hypoallergenic so we did Wainsrights but @10months we changed to skinners and havent looked back.

One thing that I would do if I had my time over again is to choose a few puppy foods, get samples and then let Heidi make the final decision. That's what I did when we went over to adult. Her choice wasnt what I expected (nor the one I wanted) but she loves it. Wainwrights was a struggle occasionally to get her to eat.

The downside of Skinners is the low meat content but OH is a butcher and brings home lots of meaty bones to top that up.

Another thing to take into consideration is the quantities to feed. Some are twice as much as others and that bumps up the cost.

I would love to be able to afford Fish4Dogs and am going to look at the RDA just incase I can but of course, Heidi will need to like it too :thumbup::D

I feed a mixture mainly of Barking Heads fat dog slim dry food & Wainwrights light wet food, chester tends to put on weight as hes been neutured. He was on orijen which increased his weight quite a bit when I lowered the amount I was feeding by only 5-10 grams he was scavenging through the bins.

He gets sometinned fish and chicken wing once a week also

I feed beta adult large breed. It is the only food I've found (and I have tried a lot) which works for both of my girls :) The extra bonus is that the kibble is so big Luna has to actually chew her food.
