This is, by far, the healthiest kibble I have ever found. Though I believe raw is ideal for most dogs, this kibble is superb to all others.

Currently, there are only two companies who produce grain & potato free kibble: Nature's Variety (Instinct formulas) & this one. Anyone out there feed it? I would love to hear about your experiences with it!

Pet Expertise carries it too. http://www.petexpertise.com/natural-dog-food/great-life-grain-free-kibble-dog-food.html Have you heard of this company (Great Life... I assume ) before???? The raw food layer ( added on top of the cooked kibble??? I'm assuming) looks esp good, but of course would not be the majority of the food. Reading down the ingredient list is "turkey tail".... what IS this????? I would love it if this food is near the food it looks like from the initial glance. I just would like to hear more and learn more about the manufacturer. I'll be interested to hear what we find.

UPDATE:

I started carrying this food a couple of months ago, & it is superior to any other dry food I've found. My two are thriving on it (along with raw), & my customers dogs are doing phenomenally well - the response to this food has been exceptional. Customers are telling me that their dogs are screaming for this food...they think it's candy, & their dogs have never reacted this way to any other food before. Some dogs who have never liked any food provided in the past, are gobbling this up, & people are seeing awesome differences in their dogs.

Check in your area to see if it's available & give it a try. It can be hard to find though.

What are the price points for a large bag? I saw it online, but how to their prices compare to a brick and mortar store? Usually the stores are less. I think it is certainly out of my price range, but am curious about it.

How many kcal/cup? I didn't see that info and had trouble finding the company website.

Here's the site I found. http://www.thewholedog.org/rubicon.html I don't buy the fact of potatoes being carcinogenic and don't know how viable the pre-probiotics are being sprayed on the food.
Don't get me started on thewholedog.org. The more I read, the more I want to pull my hair out.

Acrylamide was found to cause stomach tumors. Therefore it may cause the three main cancers in Golden Retrievers (lymphoma, osteosarcoma, and hemangiosarcoma)? The lack of real scientific understanding on that site is staggering.

I also saw that website. I agree with you. I'm not sure I buy that potatoes are carcinogenic...why do we eat them? Anyway... I'm not sure that for the price $75/27 lbs, it is worth it if your dog does well on another high end kibble.

I don't know about other internet prices. I only offer this through the store (not website). The price at my store is as follows:

7# $26.50
15# $42.00
25# $62.00

I don't have the bag in front of me to look at the kcal per cup. I'm all out! This food flies out the door faster than I can keep up with it.

The largest is 25# bags. Yes, $75 is a lot! I sell it for $62, which isn't bad.
