I had Trapper on Solid Gold, he never seemed crazy about it although it's suppose to be great. Now trying Fromm Fresh Duck & Sweet Potato and he seems sort of "if-y" about this too but loves Purina Lamb and rice. (was on it when i got him) It's loaded with so much crap though! Any premium brands that have a lamb blend? He loves Solid Gold's lamb jerky and lamb lung treats as well...

Never heard of acana. No I haven't seen a lamb from Fromm at all but just about everything else! I should check their website...

I checked their site, they don't. maybe I'll try the surf and turf again too, he did seem to like that. Sure would be my pick if it were me, lol. :)

Nature's Variety, Healthwise, and California Natural all have lamb formulas. They are all from very highly respected companies as well. I currently feed Healthwise, and have fed CN and NV previously.

Many breeders recommend transitioning to adult food around 4 months so that really shouldn't be a problem. Ash is the residue left after taking into acct the percentages of protein, fat, carbs, and moisture. All foods have some degree of ash. If I remember right most of the foods I use are in the 6-8% range.... that's from memory though.

Maggie ate Flint River Ranch Lamb & Rice for just about her whole life. She did well on it. It has to be ordered through their website (or telephone) and sent free via UPS. No tax. There are sample bags available.

Shadow has been on California Natural Lamb & Rice since Canidae changed their formula. He has done well on it so far. Seems like he's been on it a year, but I may be wrong.

I have tried lots of diferent food with my two goldens, they didn't like alot of them and the ones that they seemed o.k with didn't agree with either their tummys or their fur:( a co-worker told me that she feeds the dog food from cosco, there aren't any grains, her dog loves it, and its 24 bucks for a 40 lbs bag. so i tried it, they love it! they don't eat as much of it, they are maintaining ( sp) their weight, and no problems. its the kirkland brand, they have chicken and lamb, I'm feeding the lamb.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. My Aunt offered to pick that up for me a while back, she shops there every week. Kirkland is a good brand, the trail socks are great! :) I use the dryer sheets too. He really likes the California samples I got so we'll see!

Another vote for California Natural lamb and rice. The other brands noted here are good also. I believe Natural Balance has a lamb and rice also that is pretty limited ingredient if allergies are a concern.
