Okay thank you!I probably would stick with Diamond Naturals.... I'm saying that tentatively enough because there are a lot of people who go bananas about food brands and second guessing what should or not be fed for various reasons. In golden retrievers, there's a bottleneck when it comes to kibble... and I suspect that's probably caused some of the shortages with certain brands because everyone switched over to feed 1-2 brands of food regardless of it suiting the dogs or not. Currently many of the lemmings are switching to a brand I feed now and then (Victor) and it scares the heck out of me, because that's one of my budget month favorites and I like it being available!
Diamond Naturals - I have heard people say it's garbage (and I don't know if that's with personal knowledge or echoing others, a lot of people just echo what they hear). But others in big active breeds that do not have the dog food concerns we do in our breed have fed their dogs this food successfully. So probably comes down to what they are seeing with their dogs. If you have a lot of gut issues, itchy skin, bad breath, poor coat quality.... might be the food isn't suiting the dog.
TOTW - I used to feed my guys on trips (I buy 5 pound bags for travel). The dogs weren't that crazy about the kibble and would leave 1/2 in the dish. This was all before the DCM stuff.
