    We're feeding our dogs "taste of the wild" brand. We get it at Tractor Supply.

    Before that, we fed Eukanuba.

    Both were pricey foods.

    Every vet I've talked to says that you'll feed less food with the premium foods.

    these dogs eat better than i do. i have been thinking about just cooking them chicken and rice. it would probably be cheaper but they may be missing vitamins and minerals that comes in the processed dog food.

    we used eukanuba when my lab was a pup. he couldn't hold it down. we have been through many brands and now we feed him dads. he is twelve years old and thinks he is 5. but he doesn't have much time left. we also fed him puppy chow when he was a puppy and boy did it make him hyper.

    during salmon season a 3rd party company comes every day to pick up our fish carcasses. he sells them to dog food manufacturers. he would not tell me brands but he did say most of the top manufacturers. it kidof bothers me that they use it for pet food and we can't put them in the ground because it is concidered hazerdis waste.

    When I was younger, my old man had a BlueTick hound that lived to be almost 15. That dog ate table scraps his entire life. He wouldn't have known what to do with store bought dog food.

    Nutro, natural choice. Our lab has ate it since she was a pup, will be 14 in July. It's about 40 bucks for 30# here. She goes though 1 bag every weeks.
