RD, what foods are available in your area other than Diamond? It's not a horrific choice, but you might be able to step it up.

I think out of the choices you have at this one store, I would personally probably go with Blue, but I by no means am a food expert.

I agree, I guess. If this store is your only choice, I'd probably go with the Blue.

I feed my hunny bunny Evo Red Meat. The pic of the Bernese on their webpage is freaking awesome! I just love those dogs... they don't shed and they don't drool and they weigh like 150lbs or more!

Solid Gold is a decent food. I have fed it in the past with good results. In fact I was recently given a couple huge bags of the Wolf King and have been using it for dogs passing through and they seem to like it and do well on it. It is certainly not the best, but it isn't bad, and considering it is easily available, I think it is a doable food.

Spoon- I have not known a Berner that doesn't shed and drool, and I know several. lol Awesome dogs though...

Can we get a new top 5 or 10 from anyone?
This top 5 was very helful, just wanna make sure that over 3 years later it would still be the same. And if not, what will the new ones be?

I just recently was introduced to a company called Fromm Family... They are located in Winsconsin and they have a grain free kibble that my Jigga really enjoys... I went to the pet store with the intention on buying the Orijen - Large Breed Puppy(which is very expensive) but the owner swayed my decision when I saw her beautiful bully puppy... he was a nice size with a coat that was shinnig and so healthy looking... so until so big news breaks about this company I'm sticking with Fromm - Surf & Turf (Grain Free Entree) I purchased a 5lb bag for 11.50 which included tax and Chicago has the highest city/county tax in the nation :wow ... so I think that is a fair price for premium kibble and my baby just loves it :inlove: (2/3 Oof a cup in the am and pm)... If anyone has there bully on this kibble I would love to know what you think... this is week one for us...

I really would like to switch my pup to a RAW diet but at the moment its not possible so i found a store that carries some of the brands that i have seen you guys talk about on this site. I will list them below.
Wellness
Natural Choice
Max
Evolve
Innova
Solid Gold
California Natural
Chicken Soup
Canidae
Merrick
Which food would you guys recommend for a 11 month old apbt who is relatively lazy (lol) and suffers from allergies? I will be consulting with TYs vet before i switch from her current dog food but i do want to get some opinions from you guys who have had experience with these brands.

The website is http://www.littlecreaturesnyc.com/products.nxg


If you guys have better suggesions let me know and i'll try to find a store that sells them near me

Thanks

I don't feed any of the top 5. Canidae has had some bad results in the "english" bulldogs. My EB and PB guys are grain free and on Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Fish. I've removed anything with white potato due to the horrible tear stains that I think were caused by the white potato ingredient, which changes their pH. However, all of your top 5 are nice foods. I do tons of food research having two EBs in the house. :)
