Default Dog Food: What is your best friend eating?

Simple. What do you feed your dog?

Our American Bulldog (she will be 1 year old Dec 15th), has been on Taste of the Wild- Sierra Mountain flavor. It is mainly lamb, sweet potatoes, and peas.



She loves it and has been eating it since around 12 weeks when she had a sample from a vendor at the feed store one day and went crazy over it.

It's a very high quality product and my only concern has ever been that it is made in South Carolina at the Gaston plant for Diamond...and they have been known for some really big screw ups.

Had mine on Blue Buffalo and then Iam's before that but both were to high in protein for her and she had issues with it. We now use Natural Choice the Venison one but its the purple bag for sensitive stomachs.


Random thought here though.......So it dawned on me awhile back, why do some people frown upon giving their dogs scraps? Before the mass production of dog food people had to cook for their dogs or give them "people food". Dog food just makes it simple now. And I also give my dog these wet food meals from Pedigree them come in a lil bowl and she gets them about once a week as a treat. But seriously these things smell and look good enough to eat, real Chicken and whole Rice in Gravy! Our dog loves Veggies, anything Veggie she goes ape-shit over them! She does not get scraps other then Veggies unless my 1 year old tries to feed her the food that she is supposed to be eating.

We don't give our dog any scraps unless it is protein and only if it has been grilled/baked/boiled. We do give her veggies and fruit...she LOVES fruit and her drooling faucet of a mouth will begin to pour. Strawberries and apples...she will eat them all day.

Occasionally, we will cook a rice/chicken meal just for her and give it to her over a few days in small amounts. Got a recipe online for that.

The main treat she gets are cow ears and knuckle bones. Unfortunately, the cow ears at our stores went up from about .50 to .99 centsr so we have been giving less.

Our dog will get very bad gas if she eats something she isn't supposed to. A few weeks ago, we had takeout Chinese delivered to the house. Order of Sesame Chicken, order of General Tso chicken, and chicken wings. We wanted soda to go with our bad meal so we closed the paper bag and put it on the counter all the way against the wall...and headed to gas station.

Yep, she ate it all. Couldn't resist the smell I guess. Unfortunately, we had to leave in order to resist her smell the rest of the night...and LOUD, too! It is gross but hilarious. I was really worried about her taking in all that sodium and afraid the chicken wings would hurt her. She just had a bad tummy ache for a night and slept a lot. She would do it again though!

ROFLMAO!!!!! Yea my Husky I had years back I walked out of the room to get a drink and left my two pieces of pizza on the coffee table while I went into the kitchen, came back and a sauce covered husky was licking her chops both pieces GONE!

Daisy our current dog won't take anything off a table and hell won't eat anything unless its on the floor. She knows she can't have anything unless we give it to her or we put it on the floor for her. When she gets an upset stomach we give her boiled chicken and rice. Her favorite things though are Peas, Banana's and her biggest favorite is Milk! That dog loves her some milk but we only give her a lil at a time and rarely does she get it.

Blue buffalo basics alternates between salmon and potato and grain free turkey and potato. Great doesnt poop but once a day and not really large. She eats potatoes of any kind. French fries, mashed potatoes, Hash browns, wedges, chips. Her other people food is rice.

It's Purina One Lamb and Rice for my girls. They like it and so do I. Because it is a high quality food, it means a lot less waste in the yard. It also keeps their coats looking great.

Its funny you mention that b/c our neighbor has an 8 month golden and 1 year old Shepard and they drop gigantic deuces! They always remark at how little Daisy's is. Its because we feed her better food then the junk they give their dogs. Also her poop's do not stink quite as bad as other dogs because her food is more natural. Heres a picture of my daughter and well my 4 legged daughter.

My family has a 7 yr old miniature dachshund and he will eat anything. He gets regular dog food but he is also spoiled as sh!t. Literally will eat jus about any kind of people food except for a non crunchy piece of lettuce.

Hmm...don't think I have seen it before at my feed store. While my dog loves Taste of the Wild, I have been looking for something just as high quality but at a better price...I'm paying $50+tax for a 30lb bag currently.
