One thing to remember about dog food is... the better quality it is, the less you have to feed (so it will last longer).

What can you afford to pay for a 40 lbs. bag? I use Kirkland (Costco) chicken and rice and it's only $20 for a 40 lbs. bag.

Diamond is a big improvement over Puppy Chow.

I've fed Diamond for over a year now.
Dozer seems to be thriving on it.
However, when I can afford more I will be getting something more top-of-the-line for him.

Just keep in mind your dog's coat,teeth,digestion,allergies.. All of those things come into play when it comes to the right food.
It's really what suits your dog best.
The stuff you will find at WalMart isn't as good as Diamond IMO.
If your dog is doing well on it, you should be fine :)

I've fed Diamond for the past month. A HUGE improvement over Science Diet. Wow. Their coats are very glossy and smooth, no flaking. Their energy is great and I can tell that they feel healthy, not so...bloated/gassy looking. And they don't pass gas half as much as they use to.

As stated above, I feed half as much as I use to with the Science Diet (1 cup for breakfast, 1 cup for dinner. I will usually add a good chunk of yogurt or other goodies) and although they go right to their bowls at their designated times, I know they're not starved. Brynlee has actually gained a few pounds.

Overall, I am very satisfied.

Diamond Naturals is a decent food. I'd stay away from their other lines though.

That's what I'd say, too - Kirkland is most similar to Diamond Naturals.

My two are both on Diamond, and I plan on doing the same when I can afford something better.

My two are great on Diamond. No problems at all.

I've fed Diamond Naturals several times over the years, and my dogs always do well on it.

It is decent food for a decent price, much better than the purina.

I switched from diamond to chicken soup for the dog lovers soul brand. I't been at least a year and they seem just fine.

I could be wrong, however, I believe Diamond actually manufactures the Kirkland Brand foods. I think I remember because they produced the Kirkland Brand food at a different factory than the affected typse, so it was not affected by the aflatoxin scare a few years back.

Yes they sure do ;)
I have found that Kirkland's still cheaper and easier to find, since we're always going to Costco!

Hmm...so it IS the science diet making my dog gassy. I thought she had a bit more...leaks...than she used to. I was feeding her science diet when I got her, lamb and rice puppy mix. Then went to "natural" something from Wal-Mart, seemed like the best they have, and she seemed to be doing well on it. Then I went back to science diet large breed puppy, and she has some STINKY gas and poo. This bag is about empty and I'm going to try the Blue Buffalo or whatever...
