We feed our dog Blue Buffalo. Also for snacks we give him carrots (his favorite) and sometimes radishes or edamame. He also loves to “snack” on ice (lol)

We have Iams Mini Chunks in the dog feeders, available around the clock. They each get one can of wet food each day. They don’t over-eat their dry food, because I think they look forward to their wet food more, and only eat the dry when they are actually hungry. They’re also super active, always in and out of the house and always playing. I don’t believe in feeding dogs the crappiest food, but I don’t think the top tier food is entirely necessary, either. I think it’s fine to supplement average food with quality items (like the chicken breast you mentioned). We also occasionally do special treats like salmon or chicken. Keeping them active and giving them mental stimulation also has a huge impact on their overall health/weight/well-being, so we also focus on that a lot.

Natural Balance Limited Ingredient dry food mixed with wet and a plain boiled shredded chicken breast about 3x/week.

Dog lover’s Gold dryfood grain-free – we feed both the meat and fish flavors rotationally.

Once we’re back in the US I’ll probably look into a raw or freeze dried option as there are a lot more available at reasonable prices. Over here it’s just so expensive and the fridges/freezers are tiny so no storage.

Taste of the Wild! 

I tried supplementing raw but my dog refused to eat his chicken bits in a timely manner. He wanted to drag them all over the house and there was some really intense dog screaming when he was not permitted to bury this food where he wanted in my bed. He also insisted it be held for him so he could chew on the end. No way, Jose. No more of that. 

Good news is he does really well on TotW and has near perfect stools. Raw is awesome though and I wish I could do it!

Jet eats propac large breed puppy biscuits. Loves them! He also gets some roast or boiled chicken breast. Loves steamed broccoli and carrots. Sometimes he will get weetbix with lactose free milk or an egg.

Science diet biscuits, veggies (pumpkin and carrots mostly), chicken wings, beef brisket bones, kangaroo meat, and that grain free meat loaf thing you get at the supermarket. So a bit of a mix from day to day and week to week depending on time and $$ we have. 

i think we all know what his fave food is though….

We feed him Blue Buffalo.  For treats it depends.  He loves Old Roy Yogurt bones, so we give him those sparingly.  I tend to get him Blue buffalo treats because I always think his teeth look cleaner when I have been giving him those.

mus1ca1xo:  Nature’s Variety Instinct – no grains because a couple of my dogs have tender tummies. The dog my ex kept sometimes get’s raw lamb when his innards go haywire. He’s extra sensitive. That stuff works great on his system, it’s just very expensive.
