    Monty came with Science Diet for puppies. I have to admit, Heathcliff was fed grocery store dog food (he lived nearly 17 years so it didn't seem to hurt)

    I'm just curious about what the dog owners here feed their canines. Anyone use the raw diet (BARK)? or the Fresh Pet refrigerated food?

    Monty is doing great, he wasn't thrilled with going in his crate for a bit last night, but he protests for a few seconds and then relaxes.

    He did get some cuddle time too

    All my dogs are old codgers, so they get Purina "Vibrant Maturity" food. Was feeding the Costco stuff, but the oldest (17 y.o. Irish Setter) had a skin allergy to it. They seem to do just fine on the Purina, though.

    Canines are meat eaters so feed them meat.

    We're bad. He gets either steak, chicken or pork. We'll make enough extra for him.

    People food. But we mix in vitamins and other dog friendly stuff.

    Our 12 year old corgi is on Science Diet Mature Adult and Max, the bulldog, is on California Natural Venison and Potato. Max was on Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream until his bladder surgery last year.

    Reggae Misstress is here :cheer:


    I may stick with the Science Diet for now---(his poops are solid and healthy)

    i was considering the Blue Buffalo, but that may be just because they seem to be marketing it pretty heavily

    Hey Sista! Stick with what works. The bad thing about foo-foo foods is that some aren't readily available at all stores so if you are running low, you are screwed...or your carpet is screwed.
    I'm loving that pup :wub:

    I didn't think I would be ready so quickly after losing Heathcliff, but my place just wasn't the same without a dog. After 17 years I forgot what it's like to have a puppy in the house. :omg:

    Any dog food that has corn meal as their main ingredient is not healthy for the dog.

    Any dog food that advertises healthy portions of vegetables is a campaign for the dumb. Dogs don't eat vegetables. It appeals to your human needs and wants and projects them on the dog.

    Dogs are family here as I am sure they are there. Puppies are so fun but damn are they a ton of work.

    BB, do you cook the chicken or give it to Bear raw? My vet swears on raw chicken, with the bones.
