What food do you feed?

I just switched my 3 big dogs to Nutrisource Performance. Emma, the Lab, has ate it before and done fine on it. The two hounds were on Hunter's Blend which had by products as the first ingredient.
Patches the BC is eating Blue Buffalo Wilderness Salmon. She doesn't really seem to like it much. I just bought some Sojos that was on clearance for the best buy date getting close.
I am really considering ordering Dr. Tim's Pursuit for all the dogs.
It comes in a 44# bag and the ash is in the lower range whereas Nutrisource is 8.45%.
I do plan to feed raw eventually, but just need to get my ducks in a row first.

We've tried various foods and find that our boys do very well with Fromm. Blue Buffalo just didn't work for them at all. Their coats are shiny, their eyes are bright and they have lots of energy.

Mine eat FROMM 4 star- Chicken a la Veg or Surf n'Turf primarily as their kibble. THK, Grandma Lucy's, or SOJO's as a topper/ treat. Homemade jerky treats. Tons of fresh fruit/veggies/meat

Advice for if ur gonna feed raw some good advice to save time is to go to your source every 2 or 3 weeks, get all your meat and then divide it up into a plastic bag for each day. Pull a bag out if the freezer to thaw each morning and feed

I am feeding both my guys Nutrisource Adult (chicken & rice). Bertie eats half PP Puppy, half Nutrisource. After he finishes the bag, I'm probably going to feed 1/2 PP Performance to him while continuing to feed both guys Nutrisource Adult.
