ProPlan Large Breed. He's doing great on it, never had any issues. Our vet recommended it and said its what she feeds her own dogs. Within 2 weeks of switching him to it his coat went nice and glossy and has stayed that way ever since. Even our other dog loves it and she is very picky and refuses most every other kind of food we've tried to give her. Petsmart does some pretty good sales on it.

We are planning on using Autarky Tuna, sometimes topped up with some home made goodies to make sure he's getting some extra nutrients from raw sources.

We originally started Bella on Pro-Plan shredded chicken & rice, but she seemed fussy on it, leaving it for 2-3 days at a time.
We switched to Pro-Plan Salmon & rice, which she likes much more & it's for delicate skin, & Bella gets the occasional hot spot.

Orijen 6 fish for my two - Quinn had ear/skin problems and after many trials we found this one the best as it has no grains including no potatoes - unfortunately it is expensive, trust me to get a dog with expensive tastes

We're actually giving them Orijen or Acana most of the time, but on some days, their second meal consists of high-antioxidant-value beans and veggies. Plant foods contain all kinds of valuable phytonutrients, while meat has none.

They go crazy for their beans and veggies, and then they're extra-enthusiastic about their next meat-based meal too.

We feed Butterbean Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream. When we run out and I have to run to Petsmart I usually buy Natures Recipe but I see a big difference in how she gets hungry on it. She doesnt seem to get hungry when we feed her TOTW and eats at the same time every day.

Acana Pacific......no skin issues, no scratching and the cleanest ears you've ever seen!
It's expensive but he eats less, two cups a day. Beautiful coat too!

We use a combination of Orijen Adult and Acana Wild Prairie for our girls. They usually have fresh fruit added for breakfast and fresh veggies for dinner.

My girls, Kylie & Kenzie
