  1. Dog food suggestions?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all! I'm looking for a good puppy food that doesn't include poultry since my pup is allergic. I'd like to find one that focuses on fish/potatoes. I've researched many options, but I feel like every single dog food has reviews along the lines of "this dog food killed my dog", so I wanted to...
  2. Large Breed Puppy Food or All Stages Large Breed Food?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi, So the food I would like to feed my golden only has a Large Breed Puppy Food in a grain-free option, which I do not want unless needed and recommended by my vet for health reasons. The food I am looking into does have a Large Breed All Stages food, however. Would I be better off feeding...

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    Hi, Does anyone feed their golden American Journey dog food? Specifically the " For All Ages, Large dogs, Chicken & Rice" - not the grain free one. Just curious. :)

  7. Recommendations for sensitive stomach?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My 11 week golden retriever, Scotch, has been eating Nulo Freestyle Puppy for the past couple weeks, and it doesn't seem to agree with his tummy. Initially he was on the turkey formula and we switched to salmon to see if that would help, but it doesn't seem much better. Anyone have any...
  8. Switching my puppy to a quality dog food

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I have a gr puppy around 3 months old. Just got him from a breeder, and he recommended to continue my pup with royal canin. But I have actually read before that rc is not really good. I thought that this is a good time to introduce a new brand of dog food to him, something that is premium...
  9. Best food to feed Golden Retriever puppy?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I just brought home my new Golden puppy, she is 8 weeks old. The breeder I got her from, was feeding all the pups Nutrience but she doesn't eat it unless I add a little bit of yogurt to it, (that's what my breeder suggested.) I also bought Acana Ranchlands, but she won't eat it either! She's...
  10. Kirkland Dog Food

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    I have been researching different foods for my little Lexi (I will get her in one week!) and I feel overwhelmed with the options. Obviously I want her to have proper nutrition, food that she loves, while not blowing the budget. Her breeder had her on NutriSource (a bit more than I was hoping to...

    Hello everyone! (sorry in advance for the novel :uhoh:) I have browsed a few threads here in the process of getting ready for my golden to come home sometime in early June.

  12. Feeding Pedigree, Purina, or Alpo?

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    I currently feed my dog Skoki, but am wondering if it is okay to use the canned grocery store dog foods as a food topping. I like to mix wet food with her dry, but cans of "high quality" food are just so pricey. There is an aversion to grocery store food, but since she would be getting less than...
  13. Where and how do you store your dog food?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    In its bag or in a container? Or... in its bag inside a container. Do you leave it in the kitchen, the garage, the basement? And if you have an end of the world emergency shelter, what percentage of the food stockpile is for your dog? :D
  14. What brand are you feeding your dog?

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes

  15. Samson, The Stubborn Golden

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    We've had Samson now for about a year and a half, and he has always been a picky eater. He started off as a puppy by eating his dry food sparingly so I started mixing in with canned food. This worked for a while until he decided that he didn't like this way of me preparing his food and just...
  16. What are some Made and Manufactured in the USA dog foods?

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    Still going through a battle of yeasty (dirty) ears. Vet last told me to totally switch the food (Fromm grain free) and see. I tried Honest Kitchen and Grandma Lucy which I like, however it is not always convenient to feed (out and about or at work) and also pricey. So I'd like to try a new...
  17. Is there such thing as a vegan kibble good for dogs?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Not that I'm planning on feeding Nana vegan food, but is there such a thing? Given that dogs aren't obligate carnivores like cats, is it possible for there to be a wonderful kibble with enough protein and nutrition for dogs and still be vegan? I saw this V-dogfood — Welcome the other day from...
