    I certainly wouldn't feed a high protein high/high fat diet to a dog who doesn't exercise as much.
    My griff is fine with that blend (30/20) because that's what she's been on for awhile, just a different brand but for others who have dogs that aren't as active I've been told PPP also has a 28/16 blend. Some hunters/hunt test guys put their dogs on it during the winter months.

    Do you seriously think these are credible opinions worthy of reposting????

    When you come up with something believable to refute the USFDA's findings then fly at it. In the meantime there is plenty of nonsense on the internet already without copy and pasting links like this that have absolutely NO validity written by people with a clear bias.

    I feed all my dogs GO Salmon limited ingredient,before their limited ingredient line,I fed GO salmon. I will change it up and feed their venison or duck occasionally. I’ve been feeding this brand for about 15 years now. I’ve tried other brands but have always come back. The salmon limited ingredient food they make is fantastic for both coats and joints. Highly recommendable

    Yes I feed GO! as well, the dogs do well on it.

    Labguy I didn't think you'd like those articles mentioning your beloved purina.
    Here are a couple more good articles for you:

    Any anti social, dip shit, living in his parents basement, can write whatever they want on the internet and make it sound credible. Much like the links you've posted.

    You don't seem to understand that there is no end of articles on the internet to support whatever preconceived ding bat belief one may have. Doesn't make them accurate, credible or scientific.

    And....it's not my beloved Purina. I don't give a shit about Purina or any other dog food company. I made my choices based on advice from a research scientist who spent his entire professional career researching animal nutrition.

    This is one of the major problems with the internet. People glom onto articles that support their beliefs and take it as gospel because they are too insecure to admit that some of their previous thinking might be suspect.

    Huntingfamily, when you can offer something CREDIBLE to refute the findings of the USFDA, please post them up.

    Im done engaging with you on this topic. It's your dog, do whatever you want but please don't try to sway people's opinions by posting links from suspect and uncredible sources. It's not fair to the dogs.

    And WTH does " doing well on it" really mean. You can't see what's going on inside your dog. A friends 4 year old Lab was "doing well" up until the day it fell over and died from heart failure.

    Even that HUGE site called Dog Food Advisor: Reviews and Ratings that everyone seems to think is gospel is written by a retired dentist with no scientific dog nutrition background from what I've heard.

    Labguy,,,are you a once a day feeder, or twice a day?

    Once a day in the eveing based in part on this article written by probably the most respected professional Retriever trainer in the world and backed by scientific research. Definitely worth a read.

    One of the problems debating dog food brands, when to feed, what to feed etc. is that people tend to anthromorphise. That means ascribing human characteristics to animals. Dogs are not people. They metabolize food completely differently than humans.

    It seems to us, being human and wanting the best for our dogs, that because we need to eat three times a day then dogs must be the same. They are not.

    I am not going to debate the merits of when to feed but my own observation, (unscientific as they are) based on over 40 years of owning and training multiple dogs and observing dozens of other successful competative Retriever trainers, has shown that once a day feeing in the evening increases the dogs ability to sustain long, intense and stressful physical exertion much better than dogs who are fed two or three times a day.

    This seems counterintuitive but has been proven time and time again by better dog men than me.

    Kibble is for dogs, what Beyond meat burger is for people.
    If you knew what was in it, you probably wouldn't eat it.
    But convenience trumps everything.

    Pretty sure it was you that posted this link about three years ago because it's still on my Bookmark Favourites. It makes good sense but I'm still on a twice a day feeding schedule. I'd like to switch over to once a day but my dog is such a foodie that I know she would pester me to death!

    I think what i'd like to try is to feed her a smaller ration in the morning, then the full once a day meal amount that evening which would really fill her up ,and then hopefully it would get her through to the next evening meal.

    Alberta hunting addicts had a huge discussion on this on fb.

    Kibble good raw meat bad, apparently.

    I feed our goldens raw. Not fried garbage kibble.
