We use Nutro! We used it when Leroy was a “puppy” and we switched to adult food a few months a go (he’s 14 months). We haven’t had any problems, and it’s also corn free!

I have used Orijen, or Acana food for my Newfoundland dog, and have gotten great results.

I second Nutro…worth the money

we are also on nutro, natural choice. we use the one for sensitive stomachs now because he’s an adult, but as a puppy, we used small bites (still nutro natural choice). he threw up everything, and the second we switched him to that there was such a difference. he loves it.

another added bonus is how nice it makes their coat – we get so many compliments on his color and how soft he is, but we rarely groom him! brush him once in awhile but just don’t have the time for full blown shampoo.

We feed our dog Orijen as well.. it’s grain free and it has been named pet food of the year for the past couple years.. it’s kind of expensive but he doesn’t need to eat that much of it, so it lasts awhile and he loves it..

Flint River Ranch and/or Life’s Abundance. I know at least one of them, if not both, are human grade (not that I’d ever want to eat it, but it is nice to know in the event of a severe famine, I’ve got that on hand. :))

I feed my dog Wellness Core but I don’t think they made any that’s specifically for puppies.  It’s pretty easy to find now that it’s sold at both Petco and PetSmart.  I have a friend who feeds her dog raw beef medallions, I suppose that’s always an option.

Whole Dog Journal puts out a list every year of their approved dry dog foods (they are super stringent in the requirements).  I have a lot of experience in this area cause of my work.  I would choose a grain free version of any of the foods on this list



feel free to pm me with any questions

We switched to Nutro Grain Free a couple of weeks ago and our dog LOVES it. . She literally is drooling by the time I’m scooping it into her bowl. Although, I’m not sure if they have a “puppy” version. Plus, she poops a WHOLE lot less, lol.
